True Tales for this Week....
****Obama has announced the date and time and the number of troops that will invade Mosul. THOSE PLANS CAN BE BOUGHT ON CANAL STREET FOR TWO DOLLARS.
****New York City is going to permit religious education in pre-school....but only in private religious schools. GOD IS A SECRET IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS AND NOT TO BE TALKED ABOUT.
****City and state authorities announced a joint lawsuit against UNITED PARCEL SERVICE, alleging the company illegally shipped close to 700,000 cartons worth of illegal, untaxed cigarettes throughout New York over a period of four years. THE CIGARETTES COME FROM INDIAN RESERVATIONS WHICH DO NOT HAVE TO PAY TAX FOR THEIR OWN CONSUMPTION. AS AN ADDITIONAL TIDBIT ABOUT THE LAWLESSNESS OF THE UPS, IT DOESN’T PAY FOR THE TRAFFIC TICKETS WE ALL SEE BEING PLACED ON THEIR DOUBLE PARKED VEHICLES.
****The Peck Slip School is a public school which will now serve an exclusively vegetarian menu. The elementary school — currently housed in Tweed Courthouse, the Department of Education’s headquarters, as its new permanent home is built in the South Street Seaport — just announced the meatless menu. NO ONE BOTHERED TO ASK THE KIDDIES AND TO IMPLY THAT EATING A HOT DOG OR A HAMBURGER IS GOING TO BRING ABOUT AN EARLY DEATH, IS NASTY.
**** A restaurant in the Arthur Avenue section of the Bronx has no menu. When you come in, the waiter chats with you: “What are you in the mood for today? Some veal, perhaps? A good steak? Maybe some spinach on the side? What kind of pasta you like?” When pressed for a menu, waiters will say, “Did you come here to read, or to eat?” DISCUSSING THE MENU LEADS TO INVITING THE WAITER TO SIT DOWN AND JOIN THE CLIENT FOR DINNER?
****Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman offered to change her position on medical marijuana if a major Florida donor recanted his withering criticism of her comments about former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani's statement that Obama was a no friend to America. SHE REPRESENTS A CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT IN FLORIDA WHERE MANY OF THE FOLKS VOTE ONCE IN NEW YORK CITY AND THEN ALSO IN FORIDA WHICH HELPED HER TO WIN HER SEAT.
**** Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito is endorsing a ban on employers running credit checks on job applicants. A CREDIT CHECK ON HER IS NEEDED SINCE SHE IS CURRENTLY UNDER INVESTIGATION FOR FINANCIAL SHENANIGANS.
****State Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman is proposing legislation to reduce the number of "zombie properties" -- the vacant buildings lost in mortgage failures that drag down neighborhoods. He has announced that he is introducing a bill to provide more protection and time for homeowners to stay in their homes. Schneiderman said his analysis found that the number of so-called zombie foreclosures on vacated properties increased by 50 percent last year. Zombie properties are homes vacated by their owners, but not yet seized by banks. REAL ESTATE LAWYERS AND LANDLORDS, NOW THAT IS A MARRIAGE OF EVILS.
****Some postcards arriving at the Rikers prison in NYC were not of the "wish you were here" variety. The postcards were laced with a hallucinogenic drug that has similar effects of LSD, and that inmates paid $10 for a tiny piece of a card, which they put in their mouths to absorb the drug. MOST DRUGS, HOWEVER, GET INTO THE PRISON BECAUSE THE GUARDS GET PAYOFFS FROM THE PRISONERS.
****National radio talk show host based in New York City urges Jews to arm themselves. WEAPON OF CHOICE WOULD BE THE BAGEL?
****President Obama said he will comply with an injunction temporarily blocking his plan to shield millions of people who are in the United States illegally, suspending applications for deferred action. THE CHINESE SWEAT SHOPS ARE VERY HAPPY ABOUT THIS.
****A Queens woman was busted robbery charges after she wore a wristwatch stolen from the victim to the arraignment of her accomplices. Sharp-eyed cops spotted Kiaralys Torres wearing a “rose gold watch” that looked like one of the wristwatches stolen during the home invasion of a Howard Beach apartment, according to court papers. Torres, 23, was wearing the swag at the arraignment of Henry Fernandez and Pete Vega, who barged into the apartment wearing badges and pretending to be cops. STUPID CROOK OF THE WEEK.
****It's long been rumored there are thriving colonies of alligators lurking in New York City's sewer system. Supposedly, Alligator in sewer baby alligators brought back as pets from Florida during the winter end up being dumped into the sewer system when they outgrow their young and innocent stage. From such an inglorious beginning, these discarded gators grow to immense size and daily terrorize all those foolish enough to risk a visit to the bowels of the city. ALSO, MANY BOA CONSTRICTORS CAN BE FOUND IN THE BACK OF OUR TAXIS.
