Title: Too drunk....
Post by: denny on March 27, 2010, 06:03:52 PM
A Pennsylvania man attempted to resuscitate "a road-killed opossum," state police say.

But this was one possum who wasn't playing possum -- the ugly creature remained dead.

Troopers responding to the scene in Oliver Township on Thursday determined that Donald J. Wolfe, 55, of Brookville, was drunk, according to the police report.

Several witnesses observed Wolfe's failed resurrection of the flattened marsupial, police said. It was not immediately clear how he endeavored to restore the possum's life.

The arresting officer in the incident was unavailable for comment Friday. Attempts to reach Wolfe were also unsuccessful.

Wolfe will be charged with one charge of public drunkenness, police said.

I grew up in Shiremanstown, aka Camp Hill. Went to high school in Mechanicsburg. My first professional job was at the York Daily Record. Moved to Alabama in 93.

I have a lot of New Jersey jokes.  :D

Go ahead, lets hear some, no offense will be taken here.

I grew up in Camden and my moms specialty dinner was Shake and Bake.....but with no meat. Thats pretty funny right? Truth is so much more funny than fiction.

At least she wasnt using road kill though.

I tell ya the truth though, I love NJ. The beach is right there, Philly, NYC, pine barrens, mountains, waterfalls. Its the most densely populated state and one of the smallest yet it is all farms. It is an enigma.

Public drunkeness?  I thought someone had to be drunk and disorderly to be arrested?  Don't step outside your home if you've been drinking now?  I know you can't take a whiz outside on your own property anymore... if someone should happen to be standing in the right place with binoculars trained on you, you can be arrested for public indecensency(sp?) and you'll have to register as a sex offender.  And no, I'm not kidding... thats the law here in Michigan.   ::)

If you've been drinking and step outside and act like a normal person, fine.  Drinking and step outside and act like a jackass, or try to resuscitate a dead animal, probably grounds for getting a citation.

Why would you piss on your front lawn when the door to your house is probably 10 feet away? 
Title: Re: Too drunk....

Because the lawn is 0 feet away.

Good point.  I guess if you have neighbors glassing you with binoculars all day than there are have bigger issues to worry about.

BTW, if you ever go to Ireland what ever you do dont kiss the Blarney Stone.


I always thought NJ licenses plates should read 'The Police State' not 'The "Garden" State'.

 You know what's even better than a pee in the lawn? A good ole' pee in the shower. I mean, is there anything better? It just feels so right. And, as an added bonus, no athletes foot.  :D

I pee in the shower all the time. I just wait until the wife gets in, yank open the door, and let 'er rip.





I'm getting banned for this one.

NO NO NO. Peeing in the shower is completely unacceptable. Just nasty.

Things in urine are not completely water soluble and they build up on the shower floor and walls as it splashes around. Then other people have to stand in your pee. Just awful.

The shower is not a toilet. Show some self control and pee before or after your shower...anywhere but the shower.

+1. I live in the woods and I use the outdoors as my personal latrine all the time and have a few favorite spots. But peeing in the shower is uncivilized.

Reminds me of a South Park episode where Randy Marsh goes to his son's little league game, gets blazing drunk, and in fist fights with other parents, each time, and each time as the cops drag him away is drunkenly protesting, "Scuse me, I thought this was America!  I thought this was a free country!"

Cap, this might break your brain, but imagine the immense biodiversity of hotel shower floors.   ;D

Hey, George is from Jersey, he should know!

I was "raised" in Levittown, PA. Now pronounced "leave it town". Just over the bridge from Burlington. And I put in a year in beautiful Campden, NJ. Ahh, the only state with 2 of the top 10 most dangerous cities in the US of A.

Then off to Pittsburgh for 4 years. But before the breweries (except for the Penn Brewery which is awesome). And luckily there were no breweries in Delaware while I spent 4 long years at the U of D (otherwise I would be a brewer). And then, thankfully, the US Army ordered me out to Denver for 4 years of hard duty.

So, which circle?

It's good to see beers named after NJ turnpike exits!  http://www.flyingfish.com/

Wait a second, Tom... Are you saying there was a point to this thread apart from where the best places to pee might be? Jersey, by the way, consistently ranks among the top 10 on that list as well.

Hey, I live right by leave it town.

Its OK, great for outdoor peeing and better than living in one of those snobby yuppie towns.

Bought a house here as a fixer upper flipper, boy am I regretting it now though.

I got to get outta here and off to Jim Thorpe. Out to possum resuscitating country.
