They Hate Us For Our Ponies

(AP)   ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) – Authorities blew up a stuffed pony – determined to be a “suspicious device” – after it was found outside a central Florida school. The Orange County Sheriff’s Office reported that the toy was found near the Waterbridge Elementary School Tuesday morning.

No one was allowed in or out of the building while bomb disposal experts destroyed the stuffed animal. It was ultimately deemed “non-threatening.”

No injuries were reported.

    been my pony.  It never arrived in the mail or by Fed Express.  I’m suspicious.  Was it a palomino – that’s what I asked for.

    There’s something happening here

    What it is ain’t exactly clear

    There’s a man with a gun over there

    Telling me I got to beware

    I think it’s time we stop, children, what’s that sound

    Everybody look what’s going down

    There’s battle lines being drawn

    Nobody’s right if everybody’s wrong

    Young people speaking their minds

    Getting so much resistance from behind

    I think it’s time we stop, hey, what’s that sound

    Everybody look what’s going down

    What a field-day for the heat

    A thousand people in the street

    Singing songs and carrying signs

    Mostly say, hooray for our side

    It’s time we stop, hey, what’s that sound

    Everybody look what’s going down

    Paranoia strikes deep

    Into your life it will creep


    It starts when you’re always afraid

    You step out of line, the man come and take you away

    We better stop, hey, what’s that sound

    Everybody look what’s going down

    Stop, hey, what’s that sound

    Everybody look what’s going down

    Stop, now, what’s that sound

    Everybody look what’s going down

    Stop, children, what’s that sound

    Everybody look what’s going down

    I will leave by a SCHOOL!

    The new threat of the century.

    It’s a big, bad, nasty dangerous world out there. Full of fanatical killers who hate you because you’re free. You got to make sure you’re safe. That’s the most important thing, right?

    Everything else ain’t worth sh*t without you’re safe and secure, right?

    Right. No question.

    I heard on the news today that they’re closer now. In my town.

    Sh*t. Now what? I’ve got it! I’ll put up a steel fence around the house. To be safe and secure.

    Ahhh, that’s better.

    The local radio station said this morning that there’s a good chance they’re now in the neighborhood.

    F*ck! Now what? I’ve got it! I’ll put up steel shutters on the windows. To be safe and secure.

    Ahhh, that’s better.

    The mailman came today. He said he’s seen some suspicious looking brown people on the street this morning. But not to worry. He called Homeland Security.

    They said since they don’t need warrants anymore that this is nothing to worry about. They’ll be right out to arrest anyone on the sidewalk today. But just to be on the safe side they said to shut, seal and lock the steel shutters. To be safe and secure.

    Ahhh, that’s better.

    Something woke me up at three in the f*cking morning today. Some low banging and thumping on the wall from outside. I had a hard time getting up out of bed to check it out because the air is getting so bad I can hardly f*cking breath in here now.

    Cough, hack. But I’m safe and secure.

    Gasp. Choke. Sh*t, there’s no food in the cupboard. And the fridge is empty.

    But I just remembered… I’m safe and secure. Why isn’t this any better?

    It’s getting really hard to breath in here now. But good thing I’m safe and secure.

    F*ck I’m hungry. Mostly for human contact… I wish I had someone to talk to…

    I’d like to let someone know that I’m safe and secure. But I’m afraid to open the shutters now. I wish there was some air in here…

    Tell my kids I loved them, will you? And please give them this note.

    And who stole my pony?

    it was a republican pony.

  1. take off and crash into the crowded offices of the

    State re-Education Department. Phew, close call–

  2. have taken to blowing the ponies up? I guess denying them to us wasn’t good enough. The damn ponies are well known explosives, and destroying them once and for all is the best. God knows there are enough Trojan ponies out there to kill us all.        

  3. just sent a Unitarian skateboarder in to disarm it?    

  4. (AP) Washington DC – Suspicious stuffed stuffed began mysteriously appearing everywhere after an incident last month in which the FL Orange Country Sherrif’s Office reported that a stuffed pony was found near the Waterbridge Elementary School.

    A stuffed pony was mailed to Ben Nelson (D-FL) and also appeared on every desk of every Justice of the Peace in the nation.  Ben Nelson, Joe Lieberman, Nancy Pelosi received yellow ponies, while those of the marriage clerks were rainbow ponies.  There was no note attached and no explanation for the variant color of the ponies.  None of the ponies thus encountered appeared to contain dangerous materials.

    “We will not stand for this blatent threat endangering the welfare of our elected officials,” Lieberman fumed.  “These people are terrorists, and their evil pony cult must be destroyed!”

  5. Busted!

    we’re gonna hafta go with Plan B then, eh?
