Dumb And Dumber

Dumb: a couple of Iowa men, visiting Boston for the “World Pokémon Championships”, post a threat to social media, and are busted in notoriously anti-gun Boston with a car full of firearms and ammunition.

Dumber: the Boston police’s response:

Boston Police characterized the take down of the Pokemon subjects as a win for counter-terrorism.

Questions about the episode were  referred to assistant chiefs Dwight Schrute and Cliff Clavin.

  1. It’s bad enough to make a name for yourself as an idiot, but …. a Geo Prizm? They’ll never be able to show their faces in public again!

    Lets not forget that the Boston police allowed the Boston Marathon bombing. They want to be seen as they are on the ball to protect the public so they are taking advantage of a gift. The dumb part is people don’t see this is what the Boston Police are doing.

  3. I owned a couple of Geo Prizms – outstanding cars, Toyota Corollas rebranded “Geo” to sell in the US as “domestic” instead of “import.” Then Chevy took over and in typical General Motors fashion, ruined them. I had one of those, too; hated it.

    The on-off-volume knob on the Geo Prizm was soft rubber with ridges, very grippy, over a spring metal insert. The same knob on the Chevy Prizm was entirely smooth hard plastic so of course, it broke off immediately, the genuine Chevy part cost a fortune and the after-market “universal” replacement didn’t match. Why’d they do it? To save a few pennies? Had a bunch of knobs leftover from the Nova? I don’t know but every time I touched it, it annoyed me. Every single time. Every. Single. Time.

    Memo to car manufacturers: do not make cosmetic changes to save a few pennies if the change will reinforce in your customers’ minds “I hate this brand and I’m never buying another.”
