    A local auto parts (catalytic converter) redistribution agent was recently found dead under a stolen automobile in Richmond County, NC. It seems the body was located under a formality jacked up automobile deep on state game land property. The local authorities are puzzled about how the car flew through the air and landed on this man. No tornadoes have been reported.

    The Model 8. The gun that took down Bonnie & Clyde. Wish you could still get one for an affordable price.

    “the suspect’s accomplice took off in a vehicle”

    “What’s with all of these people stealing converted Cadillacs. Aren’t there any stock Cadillacs to steal? What? Oh…Never mind.”

    Too bad Ms Thang didn’t shoot til the perp bled. Good on her for fighting back, but range time people…range time.

    Had to dig real deep to get to K9 Ringo’s name. The initial article had the pic but not his name. Wanted to make sure that Good Boy got his well deserved press for the job well done. Hunter weeps.

    “…beautifully made…very reliable…hallmark characteristic of John Browning’s (Howitzer Be His Name) designs…” Could not of said it better myself.

    In the city of Kinshasa,(Congo) there is a rash of catalytic converter thefts. The thieves grind the honeycomb material in the converter, mix it with vitamin sleeping pills and smoke it, typically with tobacco.

    The mixture is called “bombe,” and its effects are rather interesting:

    “This is really good quality, you know the attraction to the drug is higher than the attraction of being with a woman. We are going to consume everything, we won’t leave anything in the bag. We will add a bit of powder in the cigarette, and the rest we’ll mix with C4 (Diazepam) and Nutriline,” Says the unidentified man.

    Within minutes the trio are swaying slowly, scratching themselves in a semi-comatose zombie state that experts in the Democratic Republic of Congo say can cause users to stand motionless for hours, or sleep for days.

    “We prefer to take bombe rather than other drugs because it makes us feel good, it slows us down for a long time, in doing so we don’t go steal things and create problems. Before we didn’t know that bombe existed, we used to drink very strong whiskey made by indians, we were agitated and we started to hurt people, but with bombe, it calms you down, you get tired, you stay somewhere standing up or sitting down for a very long time. When you’re done, you go home without bothering anyone,” says Cedrick, leader of the Nzigoula 26 Gang.
