Overnight Thread

By Wyatt Earp | June 10, 2011

Meet Joseph Hayes. This Tennessee Tuxedo really loves his children. Hayes also likes birthday cake. He likes ice cream. Unfortunately for the local kids, Hayes likes his guns even more.

Forget wedding crashers; this guy’s a birthday crasher.

Instead of a present, a Memphis, TN man brought a gun to a child’s birthday party. Joseph Hayes, 48, is charged with aggravated assault.

Hayes brought a gun to the party because his children didn’t get any ice cream or cake. Hayes approached the host, lifted up his shirt and said, “I ain’t scared to go to jail, just take care of my kids.” (H/TMrs. C.)

If the cake in question was from Stock’s, no jury in the land would convict him.

(Local readers know what I’m talking about.)

China Planning To Set Up A City Outside Boise, Idaho.

China National Machinery Industry Corporation (Sinomach for short) plans to construct a “technology zone” south of Boise Airport which would ultimately be up to 50 square miles in size. The Chinese Communist Party is the majority owner of Sinomach, so the 10,000 to 30,000 acre “self-sustaining city” that is being planned would essentially belong to the Chinese government. The planned “self-sustaining city” in Idaho would include manufacturing facilities, warehouses, retail centers and large numbers of homes for Chinese workers. (H/TKim)

The good news? Boise will now boast the best egg rolls in the nation.

Tonight’s post is sponsored by the surgeon general.

    So it is time to order my ceramic hat coated in thick plastic. (The tin foil enhances the mind reading abilities, but THEY don’t want you to know that. They want you to only think that tin foil is the way to go. Shhh.)

    Hmmm…the article is bland. This IS a an African American in Tennesse wanting his kids taken care of. Is there a race issue involved (For once, NOT meant as a joke.)

    As for China setting up a city in Idaho…what surprises me most is Boise has an airport.

    Oh by the way Wyatt, love the headline today. Reminds me of Blazing Saddles:

    “Rape, murder, theft, and rape.”

    “You said Rape twice!”

    “I like rape!”

    As for the cake and ice cream man, lets see, $30K bail so you have to come up with $3K cash/property to get yourself back to your kids for awhile. Now if I’m not mistaken, $3K even today, can buy a hell of a lot of ice cream, cake and ballons and maybe even a visit by ‘Homey the Clown’ for the little tykes entertainment.
    So while your sitting there ask yourself this question: “What the hell was I thinking?”
