I had a good laugh yesterday reading how authorities in Harris County, Georgia dealt with complaints about gambling machines in several locations. Citizens called the police after saying that they (gasp) saw real money being paid out on popular casino games at gas stations and pool bars. The law enforcement authorities decided to pull a daring midday (!) raid on eight different locations simultaneously. The funny part (IMHO) is that they had to call in the Metro Narcotics Task Force to help. Not because there were drugs involved, of course – only because Harris County didn’t have the manpower to conduct such a large scale raid! Remember, we’re talking about eight locations here…. To cut a long story short, $60K in cash was seized, as well as 60 gambling machines. And, no, there weren’t any drugs found….

The phone rings at FBI headquarters.
“Hello? I’m calling to report my neighbor, Clifford. He is hiding marijuana inside his firewood!”
“Thank you very much for the call, sir.”
The next day, FBI agents descend on the neighbor’s house. They search the shed where the firewood is kept. Using axes, they bust open every piece of wood, but find no marijuana. They swear at the neighbors and leave.
The phone rings at the neighbor’s house. Hey, Clifford, did the FBI come?” “Yep.” “Did they chop your firewood?” “Yep.” “Great, now it’s your turn to call. I need my garden plowed.”
