But it has now been stolen and photos of it have been posted on social networking sites, including appearing at several house parties.

Toga! Toga! Toga!

Must have been a copy of the Crispy Cream crime caper. They've been serving up cardboard doughnuts for nearly 20 years.

My son's fraternity is pet sitting a retired canine police dog. I suspect that there might be a toga or two in the dog's near future.

I pointed out that the dog could probably find certain herbal compounds, something that the boys hadn't thought through.

Paper chase?

oh the irony.....

Yaaaaay. Yorkshire mention. Gonna be a good day.

This may well be the single stupidest law enforcement idea in years. A) he's wearing that moronic hat, B) he's got a reflective target I mean vest, and C) he's CARDBOARD. The sun has set, Sir Garnet has left the building, John is dead, and Quebec is seceding from Canada. It's over. You've had your chips. Donald Trump is buying Westminster.

Sorry, Jan, I guess that was a trifle insensitive. I still love Stilton.

A Chuck Norris cutout would never have allowed itself to be stolen.

That's OK Omni. Personally, I'm partial to a wedge of Wensleydale. And you have to have been to Barnsley. My Mum's family are from that part of the planet. All coal miners. Salt of the earth. Not much going on there these days tho'.

Jan --
So is your family a part of the underground?

It was lifted by Mrs Elsbeth Cracklin who is delusional and claims the officer had promised to marry her.

oh yeah Clankie?? well MY Jack Bauer cutout would've rock-paper-scissored YOUR Chuck Norris paper doll to death!!!




"Well, excellent. I'll have some of that."

"Oh, I'm sorry. I thought you were talking to me. That's my name: Mr. Wensleydale."

I saw the Wensleydale Wedgies open for J-Lo.

An unsuccessful example of thinking outside of the box.

When I lived in South Korea, they had mannikin Highway Workers to warn you to slow down for work sites. They seemed to work about as much as live ones do in the US.
