The Pony Express

By Wyatt Earp | November 29, 2005

Now, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Today you get the chance to see your reader mail answered. (It’s kinda like my Ask Dr. Earpy segment, but I couldn’t settle on a topic.) Therefore, no topic is off limits, so fire away. Post your questions in the comments section, and I will have your answers on Wednesday morning.

    Why did you pic the same day to answer questions that I did? Would it be fair to steal all your questions then answer them for you?

    What precisely is the reasoning behind creatively editing so-called “bad words” in blogs? Is it really less offensive to type “$hit” or “eff-you” instead of the real thing? Everyone knows what is intended, so why not just come on out and say it?

    (If word verification says “iatshetinddaepynda” one more time I am going to check myself into a mental hospital. Hee, hee!)

    I have a question, why does YOUR word verification always say “uhavsmlpkg” everytime I post a comment? And how do you know? have you been looking?

    what is, in your opinion, the best round of ammunition for dealing with moonbats? the 12 guage is great at close range, but i need a bit more reach…

    Do real cops laugh at NYPD Blue and other lame cop shows?

    Have you ever played any of the pranks portrayed in the movie Super Troopers? Like, “Give me your license and registration right meow!”

    1. What are the handgun range qualification requirements for the Philly PD and how often are you required to practice?

    2. Why does it sometimes take up to 15-20 minutes to get a speeding ticket? Don’t you just punch in the info into your terminal, or does some troll back at HQ have to look up your background info on index cards? Just what are you guys doing back in your cars while we wait. I mean, 20 minutes! Come on, why do you think we were speeding in the first place? We’ve got places to go! Or is it some kind of perverse punishment because you KNOW we’re in a rush? If so, it’s working! ;-)

    Because I care….it seemed that Philly was a safer place under the last troll…I mean mayor (not a fan of the previous mayor, either…or his Eagles post-game appearances) Was Philly a safer place to be back then? I’ve walked through parts of NYC no one would and I feel safer there…

    Another question: Does everybody who knows really go to Melrose?

    Oh, and one last obnoxious question…was that really that dude’s mom’s ashes? I don’t have any good questions, sorry. I justed wanted to be obnoxious to a cop. I never got to do that when I was younger…I was always looking over my shoulder. ;)

    Why will half the dogs in America receive Christmas presents this year, yet few of us pause to consider the miserable life of the pig–an animal easily as intelligent as a dog–that becomes the Christmas ham? *oink oink*

    About that time I was pulled over in the little town of Mocksville, NC on Labor Day because my tags were dead (oopsie); Why did 5 cruisers swoop in and surround me like it was some kind of a major drug bust and then I didn’t even get a ticket?

    Why is the Surekill Expressway spelled Schuylkill?

    Why didn’t you discuss your heroics at work yesterday? In all my years on the Police Dept., I’ve never seen such an act of bravery. Are you going to be ok? You, Wyatt, are much too humble.

    Why are the major highways in PA always under construction? Do they ever finish? Or just go back to the beginning and reconstruct the whole thing over again?

    What’s Wagonsux talking about?

    What real life event, from work, came closest to a scene from Pulp Fiction?
    From Full Metal Jacket?
