I would like to be the master of my own demise, if at all possible.

Remember the 200+ biker shootout in Waco, Texas? At the Twin Peaks (second cousin to a Hooters) restaurant? Back in 2015?

Well...

How the Waco Biker Shooting Case Fell Apart

155 ppl indicted. One man went to trial. His case, that cost the county $1.5 million, ended in a mistrial. Over 130 civil rights lawsuits have been filed.

Clusterfuck is a legal term, now.

Police: Mother tries karate, son strips and dog steals cornbread at Walmart

Quote:
In a strange twist of events, a mother allegedly performed karate, a son stripped nude and their dog stole cornbread this week at a Wisconsin Walmart, police said.

The incident happened Wednesday evening when Eau Claire, Wisconsin, police responded to a theft call at the store, the department said in a Facebook post.

Police found a woman, identified as Lisa Smith, 46, chasing her dog Bo in the entry when they arrived and learned that son Benny Vann, 25, was in the store as well.

The woman allegedly arrived at the store with the pet unleashed and had been pulling apart store displays and placing them in her cart, the department said.

"She was asked to leave by staff and left the store to perform karate moves in the parking lot," the department said in the Facebook post. "In the meantime, Bo got a box of Jiffy Cornbread Muffin Mix and tried to leave the store."

As the chaos ensued, police say Vann went to the back of the store where he "removed all of his clothing exposing himself to other customers."

The man grabbed new clothes from the store, and tried to run over an officer with a scooter before he was arrested, police said.

Smith was also arrested but fought with officers, police say. Both face several charges related to the incident, including disorderly conduct.

Online records show both were still jailed Friday morning, and it was unclear if they had an attorney.

As for the dog Bo, officers caught him and brought him to the Humane Association.

"The dog was not charged we issued him a warning for the theft," the department said on Facebook.

May 3 (UPI) -- A tourist at a cabin in Tennessee captured photos of an unusual fellow visitor -- a black bear relaxing in the rental's hot tub.

We're not taking your crap. Take it back or prepare for war.

A bold statement for a country with a small navy.

Bummer, they got the bartendress.

The guy brandished a BFK. Compliance was an option if she didn't have a shotgun behind the bar.

There are some bizarre traditions in this land and I've never heard of this one.

No doubt this has its origins in a confrontation behind a pub, the participants being suitably fortified by several pints of Stench & Dredge's Old Peculier.

Players, wearing the traditional white smocks of shepherds, grasp each other by the shoulders and attempt to land well-timed blows to their opponent's shins. Only then - in mid-kick - can a player attempt to bring his opposite number to the ground. A stickler, the ancient name for a judge or umpire, is on hand to make sure a shin is hit before a fall can be scored.
Competitors must kick their way through early qualifying rounds, and swing their legs in a three-stage final to be crowned the shin kicking champion.
-------
"It was vicious in those days, there was a lot of inter-village rivalry and lads used to harden their shins with hammers and were allowed to wear iron-capped boots.
"We won't permit that. People stuff their trousers with straw and must wear soft shoes.
-------
Last year, 20 people turned up to compete for the crown. It was won by local publican Joe McDonagh, 41.
"It's a bit crazy," he said, as he prepared to defend his title with a cheese sandwich and can of cider. "You need a few beers inside you to do it - you need a bit of anaesthetic."

Thanks for unearthing the back story, Bruce.

As sports go, it looks like a candidate for compulsory drug testing.

BTW, that's testing for compulsory drugs.

Well, you'd have to be on something to want to participate.
