No Can Do

It’s Like Goldilocks And The Three Beers

It may have seemed like an emergency at the time, but a Connecticut man is now regretting his call to 911. The man was arrested after police said he called several times and asked them to bring him beer. He was charged with disorderly conduct and taken to hospital for treatment for an undisclosed ailment.

FOOTNOTE: Mystery ale-ment.

I wonder what would have happened if he had called in for Sushi. Raw treatment, tuna boarding? Or a feature in the New York Times food section?

That was aired on National Public Radio…go figure the man had to be crazed

Undisclosed ailment? Uh, I think he disclosed his ailment when he called 911 and asked for beer. It's called being loaded to the gills and dumb as a stump... Never to things that should ever mix and mingle.

Funny this! I remember the newscasters joking about this incident on local radio the day after it happened.
