Meanwhile In Florida

My mom re-shared this one Facebook.  You might need a tissue... I laughed until I cried.

BURGLARY IN FLORIDA: (You just cannot make this stuff up!)

When southern Florida resident Nathan Radlich's house was burglarized recently, thieves ignored his wide screen plasma TV, his VCR, and even left his Rolex watch. What they did take, however, was a white box filled with a greyish-white powder. (That is the way the police report described it.)

A spokesman for the Fort Lauderdale police said that it looked similar to high grade cocaine and the burglars had probably thought they'd hit the big time. Later, Nathan stood in front of numerous TV cameras and pleaded with the burglars: 'Please return the cremated remains of my sister, Gertrude. She died three years ago.'

The next morning, the bullet-riddled corpse of a local drug dealer known as Hoochie Pevens was found on Nathan's doorstep. The white box was there too; about half of Gertrude's ashes remained. Scotch taped to the box was this note, which said:

Hoochie sold us the bogus blow, so we wasted Hoochie. Sorry we snorted your sister. No hard feelings. Have a nice day.

And you thought California was the land of fruits and nuts.


  1. You're right - you can't make that stuff up! At least they returned his sister's ashes. And they were sorry.

  2. It took them half of her ashes to figure out it was not cocaine?

    Even the drug dealers in America are growing dumb!

  3. LOL. Mark Twain had it right, didn't he?

  4. Alex ~ Sorry in more ways than one!

    LC ~ Dim bulbs all around.

    Susan ~ He sure did.

  5. Don't you be dissing California. Things are perfectly normal here in the asylum.

  6. Came by for the 'Here's to you..' and ended up laughing my a off at this. I used to live in Florida, a long time ago. good to see not much has changed.
