Conanpremiered last night on TBS, the network that also is owned by Time Warner, the benevolent corporate overlord that also controls truTV, my employer.
Take a look at the show’s opening, which everyone here thought was hilarious. Maybe we’re biased because we want Conan to do so well that we can receive paychecks through the holiday season. Maybe it was the fantastic back rubs Conan personally gave everyone here during his visit last month. Who knows, maybe we just appreciate funny TV. Anyway, we’ll be watching again tonight at 11/10c on TBS.
The World Series starts tonight, with the Texas Rangers and the San Francisco Giants battling on the baseball diamond for domination of the ENTIRE WORLD.
That's how it works, right? Winner of the World Series gets to rule the globe with an iron fist? I'm pretty sure that's correct.
Anyway, if history tells us anything, (and it does) we can count on at least one truly weird, bizarre, downright dumb moment taking place over the next seven games or so: perhaps a mental vapor lock, maybe a manager's stupid decision or, if we're really lucky, some idiot parachuting onto the field or a three-year-old kid being swept away from a collision at home plate. More likely,if form holds for this season's play-offs, we'll see a woefully bad umpire's call.
Henry Lee Bobo (pictured) robbed a clothing store Saturday, according to Chicago cops.
The investigation didn't take long. Bobo, 49, left his Arkansas identification card at the scene of the alleged crime. Cops say the located Bobo a short time later wearing the shirt, shorts and shoes he had stolen–price tags still attached.
Bobo, described by authorities as a "career criminal," is charged with one count of burglary.
When your defense lawyer admits you committed a "crime of stupidity," you know you're in trouble.
Michael Letendre, 19, provided a court in Edmonton with a good laugh when he admitted stealing a bike and riding it to a police station for his probation hearing.
According to the article, even the judge thought it was funny.
Now, this bike you see at left, is not the one that was stolen. It's a just a brand new highly-desirable Pinarello Prince that belongs to my brother, Scott. It's retail price is $4,500.
It's locked in his garage now
…the combination of which is 8427.
Did I mention he's not home from 9AM-6:30 (except Thursdays, when he's out until 8)?
Incidentally, his dog doesn't bite.
In case you were wondering.
Let's start off your Monday morning with a quick dumb criminal.
An Okaloosa County (FL) Sheriff's deputy pulled over Amy Hammett (pictured) after he saw her smoking "what appeared to be a crack pipe," according to an arrest report.
Hammett's response, according to the deputy: "That was so stupid of me. I was smoking crack and I just hid the pipe between the seats."
What Hammett, 45, lacks in intelligence she makes up for in honesty.
Everybody's talking about Jersey Shore. But if you think The Situation, Snooki and the rest of the crew represent the stupidest things that ever washed up in the Garden State, think again. Here’s our photo gallery featuring the 7 Dumbest Things to Ever Happen in New Jersey—and there was enough material that we didn’t even have to put Jim McGreevey on the list!
Has it really come to this, Dina Lohan? You're nabbed trying to talk your way into a free ice cream cake?
Sean Stanton, pictured, showed up to Augusta County (VA) Circuit Court yesterday for a plea hearing related to a 2009 arrest on drunk driving charges.
But Stanton, 34, was drunk for his court date; a probation officer there thought he smelled booze on his breath and a bailiff who tested Stanton said his blood alcohol level was .25, triple the state's legal drinking limit.
The judge revoked Stanton's bond and ordered him to the local jail.
Antonio F. Phillips, pictured, was walking around the streets of Tampa, FL yesterday, offering strangers five dollars for their social security numbers.
You know what's really dumb?
Cops say the found a list of homeless shelters and scheduled meal times in Phillips' car, along with a list of names and social security numbers.
He is charged with trafficking in stolen identities and carrying a
concealed deadly weapon.
Every day I arrive at this office fearful that people will stop doing dumb things and I'll thus have nothing to write about it.
My worries were assuaged moments after my computer booted up when I found this story about a man named Walter Bodi.
Bodi (pictured) was allegedly driving drunk around the parking lot of Port Clinton, OH, Police Department on Thursday–but operating the vehicle from the passenger seat. When officers questioned Bodi, he said he was moving the car to shady spot because the sun was too bright. The incident took place at 9pm.
Cops say that when they searched Bodi they found pot and drug paraphernalia, not to mention having a blood alcohol content of .228, almost three times the legal limit.
He's due in court tomorrow.
