Quackers. Quaking. Quit it.
Now they were funny.
That Donald Duck so mad all he could do is spit and sputter. Jumping up and down swinging his fists.
And that Elmer Fudd with his eared hunting cap and stomping around yelling with ” you cowardwy wabbits! Bang, bang! And I’ll bwow you to smitteweenies! “
Real characters. Classic.
But these two characters? Not so funny.
Albuquerque, NM one guy saw a bumper sticker he didn’t like, walked over, and confronted the driver. Lectured him.
The second driver at first responded he didn’t want to discuss politics.
There was yelling.
There were comments like: “People like you should be shot” (By the offended man. How odd.).
Finally, driver #2 pulled a handgun and ordered the first angry man to his knees.
Cops had been called and arrived.
The gun wielding driver #2 was arrested.
Not cartoon worthy.
Judge, call up Daffy Dick and let him handle it:
Of course there could be complaints of favoritism, but he knows quackers.
Or maybe Yogi Bear? (He’s smarter than the average bear.)
Stop this period: sentencing could end this.
Mr. “I’m so right and I’m gonna learn ya” driver #1:
Your jaws get wired shut for a month.
Ponder this: Every thought or impulse that goes across your brain doesn’t have to come out your mouth or be acted upon.
In addition: No one made you king of the world or the boss of anyone.
Quit it. Mind your own business in order to stay out of trouble.
Mr. “I’m tired of your yapping so I’m gonna pull out the gun cause I have one” driver #2
Your arms get strapped tightly against your body for a month.
Ponder this: Use your words not your weapons (includes feet, fists, hammers, knives, guns, cars, airplanes with box cutters)
In addition: ” if you need assistance ask politely (or you won’t get to eat or other stuff….)
So quit it. Overreacting is bad and causes bigger trouble.
This whole stupid incident (NM,Dec. 4) is making the media rounds again – with emphasis on stupid #2’s gun.
Not much has been said about two major problem: intolerance and overreactions.
With adults in parking lots acting like this, is it any wonder emotionally unstable teens (do the 2 previous adjectives, descriptive words, need to even be there? Those just go with the age group)
Is it any wonder anyone who is constantly bombarded with images/ sound bytes by TV, films, and parents jumping to “correct other’s opinions or irrationally choosing violence to settle conflicts does the same?
New Year’s Eve is rapidly approaching with all those promises to improve. (All for show?)
Perhaps if people focused on tolerance and stopped overreacting next year, society would be less a path of glass?
I’ll drink to that…safely, not in a drunken frenzy soon forgotten.
Are you reelin’ in the years
Stowin’ away the time
Are you gatherin’ up the tears
Have you had enough of mine? (by Steely Dan)
New Years. It’s really thinking time.
No jokes about it.
Enough quacks, already.
