Troll cat apparently found his appetite for baby food…at about 4:30 this morning. The slack we cut him cuz he’s so darn old.

Since we know how much you enjoy going into the bestest office evar, you are to be commended for forgoing that delightful environment in order to help save Gaia and reduce Friday traffic.

Your sacrifice is noted and appreciated, sir.

Probably would get you handcuffed, punched and/or tased by a school resource officer, too.

Police Apologize For Handcuffing 7-Year-Old Student in Flint, Michigan:

Michigan police are apologizing for handcuffing a 7-year-old boy at his elementary school last month.

The incident happened on October 12 at Brownell STEM Academy’s after-school program, which is run by the Flint & Genesee Chamber of Commerce. Chrystal McCadden, the mother of 7-year-old Cameron McCadden, said she got a call from the school to pick up her son. When she arrived, his wrists were bound.

But wait…there’s moar!

“He’s hyper. I’ve gotten these calls about (him) being hyper before. But he is not a violent kid,” she said. “I’m still trying to get answers.”

McCadden said when she asked her son what happened, he said he kicked a cart.

Oooh…a hardened reprobate.

When McCadden requested the handcuffs be removed, she was told by the officer that he didn’t have a key.

Stupid, irresponsible armed, yoonyunized tax leech.

Flint Police Chief James Tolbert said Friday that he has apologized for the incident.

“I have apologized to the mother for this situation and assured her that we will protect the integrity of this investigation and will be transparent in our findings. It is our model to engage children in a positive light that will foster trust and respect, this incident does not reflect positively on that model,” Chief Tolbert said.

Spoken like a true unaccountable, stonewalling bureaucrat, chief.

And why the police were called by the school to help restrain an unruly 7-year old?

Can adults not do anything anymore?

Happy Friday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Sven and Fatwa!

Sven -- I’m glad Troll Cat is finally eating. Sorry he decided to do it at 4:30 a.m. I really hope your employer appreciates your sacrifice, today.

RabBiT -- I hope you’re feeling better today. Mouth pain is teh suckage. I also hope things improve in re TMP.

Fatwa -- at least that was a Fun-Size Twix. Just imagine what they could have hidden inside a full-sized one!

It’s probably for the best. We would have just used all that energy to increase manufacturing, add jobs, raise the tax base, improve the standard of living, etc.

Per Obama, the economic benefits of the pipeline would have been negligible. And since he’s teh smartest president ever, that must be right.

To keep the economy growing, Obama is pushing Congress to pass a bill that will create more college grants for disadvantaged Muslim clock builders.

I’m actually getting more work done this morning here than I do in a whole day at the bestest place ever. I think it’s because there’s so much happiness and positive distractions there, that it’s hard to focus. Here, it’s bleh and gloomy so what else is there to do but work?

They’re physically mature but not adults, Sven.

Um, play with the raccoons?

Glad you’re actually getting a lot of work done; hope it makes next week easier for you.

As my pain doc’s nurse would say, “Let me get my fuss on”.*

Can adults not do anything anymore?

No. Because they’re just like their kids (with notable exceptions to the Children of Gerbils) -- looking for an app for that.

In MY version of Sven’s happiest-workplace-on-Earth, IT rolled out our new VoIP phone provider. My default position is everything they do will be an abject failure, so I’m not disappointed.

I wasn’t yesterday either. My extension and voicemail belong to a Sr. Business Analyst out of Utah, and she’s got mine. She filed the Help Desk ticket, and we agreed we wouldn’t change anything, and the more we talked, the more we had in common.
It was wee-yurd, but in a good way.

Other than that, I got nothing. Deadline’s EoD today, and the real fun begins Monday. That when Teh Mangler™ steps up and really gives us fits. Whee!

* -- She’s 5′ IF you’re generous, and I truly do respect her, but man, it took everything I had not to blurt out, “You’re adorable when you’re mad”. She may be 5′ tall, but she’s got enough fire I bet she’d take me.

Heh. You’re adorable when you’re mad. I like that--you should have said it. In terms of Teh Mangler, I’d steal from Rabbit and ask him when the last time was he looked into a mirror and checked the condition of his soul.

I’m through for the day and what a whirlwind of productivity it was! I have just enough time now to prepare dinner for Mrs Sven AND get ready for the Captioning Contest!

Captioning Contest?
I’m going to be out for the evening, so can I just leave my captions here?

Benghazi? Ben Carson? At this point, what difference does it make?

I put the ‘ass’ in ‘classified’!

I did not have classified relations with that server!

The only XL pipeline I approve is Rahm’s.
