10:05 p.m. Police received a call from a woman who said her juvenile granddaughter was at the ski area last week and ran into a person who was selling bags of what she thought were portobello mushrooms dipped in chocolate for $30. Police said the granddaughter further informed her grandmother that giraffes were chasing her down the hill after she ate the mushrooms.

I'm sure Law Enforcement leapt to its own conclusions. On the other hand, anyone who would buy chocolate-covered mushrooms might come pre-loaded with her own giraffes.

Apparently one of the giraffes lost it's driver's license near Walton Pond Circle.

Dude. This is terrible.

Um, where can I get some of those mushrooms?

1:09 p.m. Police were called to a report of a hot tub cover that had been vandalized while the home’s owner was out of town. A sergeant advised that the suspect possibly was a bear.

Paging Andrew Sullivan...

wow. wonder what could have caused THAT.

Chocolate is powerful stuff.

Flathead county Colorado. Did this take place on 420?

Lions and tigers (in bathrooms) and bears and giraffes, Yee Haw!

It's been a while, but I don't ever remember any giraffes.
Or much of anything else, come to think of it.

Paisley tree leaves, Steve. And watching your blood circulate in your hands.

a haiku:

chocolate cannot tempt
back to the mushroom's stupor
bacon? well, maybe

Did you read the comment after the story?

ANd did police rustle the girafe(s) up?

I mean this has GOT to be bad news for tourists, although a minority of thrillseekers *might)
be encouraged.

1:05 p.m. Police were called to a report of a Florida driver’s license found on Walton Pond Circle.
Any chance they looked in a pond for the Florida driver?

Good point, Cindy. Of course, the license could have been dropped by one of the giraffes.

'shroom with a view?
