I wasn’t the least bit surprised when the usual crowd of clueless airheads started raising hell about Sheriff Matt Lutz’s orders to shoot to kill dozens of dangerous exotic animals in Zanesville, Ohio last week, after their owner turned them loose before committing suicide. Blogs and comments on news stories are calling the sheriff’s actions […]

I love watching stand up comedy, there are a few television sitcoms that I get a chuckle out of, and occasionally if I dig deep enough through all of the forwarded junk that clogs my e-mail inbox, I come across a joke that makes my day. But when I really want to laugh, I just […]

Last week, the news here in Florida was full of the story of a man who pulled a gun at a Panama City school board meeting and threatened several members of the board before the school’s security chief, Mike Jones, shot him.

Overall, I am no fan of megastores, because I spent much of my working life as a small town newspaper publisher, and I saw many small mom and pop businesses fold that could not compete with the giant retailers. However, a news story making the rounds this week really has me ticked off. Some of […]

What can I say? Just open any newspaper, they’re everywhere! Police in Daytona Beach, Florida report that Melanese Asia Reid became upset with the service at a Wendy’s drive-thru lane, so she and friend Katrina Mari-Alyce Bryant went into the restaurant, where Reid, with a pink stun gun in her hand, chased an employee.

The absolutely stupid antics of the criminal element among us gives me so much fodder for the Dumb A$$ Report that I’ll never run out of material. Here are a few that had me shaking my head and wondering how much chlorine it would take to clean up the gene pool: In Lincoln, Nebraska, a […]

It seems like a lot of Dumb A$$es are crooks. Or is it that crooks are, by their very nature, Dumb A$$es? For example: 52 year old Paul John Sos was arrested by police in San Diego after stealing an ambulance at a local hospital. Cops needed to employ stop strips to bring the ambulance […]
