The Magic Of A Fall Morning

So before I got beaten down inside the Jack County Courthouse this morning, I got to wander through the pumpkin patch that local officials had set up on the steps. It was a nice moment as I got to appreciate the lovely fall morning. Then when I walked out after a mind-numbing communication failure with a court appointed client, I methodically smashed every one of them and proclaimed the Halloween was the "Devil's Holiday." The Jacksboro PD wrestled me to the crowd, handcuffed me, and then allowed local residents to taze me for $1 a piece as part of an impromptu Fall Festival. (The picture part is true. )

Begin: "strike" enclosed by "<>"
End: "/strike" enclosed by "<>"

When you figure it out.....your going to need the above.

No offense but, what an odd display of pumpkins. It’s a bit strange if you ask me. On second thought maybe the local elementary students created it.

With that many pumpkins a large, old fashioned wagon and other autumn decor would have been a nice display.

Any bets on how long it's going to take before some high school punks smash all of them?

What if someone trips and falls on one of those little pumpkins? but,then there would be lawyers close by to take the case

I'm sorry, but the Jack County Courthouse is, possibly, the ugliest courthouse in Texas. Anything they can do to spruce it up is appreciated, but probably not enough to help! Sorry!

The 4-H club is selling the pumpkins. This is the 3rd year & so far, none have been stolen or smashed. Really surprised me!

Would love to have seen you stomping pumpkins!

The cops always seem to wrestle me to the ground. I can only dream of the day they will wrestle me to the crowd. One can only asume it will be a softer landing.

Does anyone else know (or care) that the term "smashing pumpkins" is English slang for nice breasts?

Useless information, that.
