TOP PHRASES THIS WEEK
ALL T-SHIRT WORTHY
Don't tase me bro!
Actually, I think that line was last week, but it got me thinking there are some pretty funny phrases that just seem to stick with us here on the news. That one tops the list of recent memory. Dude getting pulled away from the microphone and screaming, "Don't tase me bro! Don't tase me!" He got tased.
I'm a man. I'm 40!
Oklahoma State Football coach melted down at a news conference. He was making the point that a columnist was welcome to attack him or his coaching staff but ought not rip his players, who are not pro athletes. In doing so he angrily utters, "I'm a man. I'm 40! Love it.
I think this was from last week too. It was a story about a dude who kept getting pulled over and thrown in jail by police. He has the same name as a convicted felon, and nobody would ever believe him when he said he wasn't that guy. His lawyer was making the point that police officials were simply lazy. He accused them of "bureaucratic sloth." Nice.
No picture for this one... couldn't think of it. A dude who chopped his house in half to prove a point was charged with damage to property and a bunch of other stuff, including a charge I've never heard before but found absolutely hilarious... aggravated menacing. I think I could be charged with this at any time.
