This is a clip from Comedy Central's Reno 911 show, a comedy spoof of all of the cop drama shows we have been seeing since the early 70's. It is quite funny and is typical of Reno 911 at it's best.

JeffH,
I thought it was too good to be true (about the time she started doing the hip-throws), but still funny, and they nailed the look'n'feel of those shows nicely.

That would have made a nice scene in a movie.

It's quite possibly the funniest and most entertaining thing I have even seen on the web.

Another apropos of nothing:

Three women (a senior citizen and two younger women) were sitting naked in a sauna. Suddenly there was a beeping sound. One of the young women pressed her forearm and the beep stopped. The others looked at her questioningly. 'That was my pager,' she said. 'I have a microchip under the skin of my arm.'

A few minutes later a phone range. The second young woman lifted her palm to her ear. When she finished, she explained, 'That was my mobile phone. I have a microchip in my hand.'

The older woman felt very low-tech. However, not to be outdone, she decided she had to do something just as impressive. So, she stepped out of the sauna and went to the bathroom. She returned with a piece of toilet paper hanging from her rear end.

The others raised their eyebrows and stared at her. The older woman finally said, 'Well, will you look at that--I'm getting a fax!'

Thanks Mike, You made my day! That was a funny link.

Thanks Mike. I've got the essay writing blues and that helped.

Cheers,
Matthew

Matthew,
I have the following quote taped to my computer:

"A man may write at any time if he will set himself doggedly to it."

Sam. Johnson, quoted by Boswell, vol. IV, chap. II (1773).

As you can probably guess, the key word is "doggedly."

Mike J.

They had me on the "backwards alphabet". I can't do it sober.

Seen this before but did not know it came from Reno 911 - that does explain a lot though. Great to get a laugh today, thanks Mike!

Mike,

That's good advice. After hours of writing not-quite-doggedly-enough I am finally resting my weary head at 6AM.

Cheers,
Matthew
