    Grapefruit vs guns?

    Just saw on the idiot tube that in Brussels there is a big uproar and the people are fighting back...with fruit. That is beyond sad, the angry group is throwing grapefruit and oranges at the police. I didn't get to the tube soon enough to find out what they are angry about but there are a bunch of people throwing fruit at police all decked out with hats and shields. Almost comical, but mostly sad any way you look at it. I bet the police were sticky with fruit juice.

    Knowing how you feel about grapefruit, that must be especially troubling for you.

    It would take it to a whole new level if they tossed watermelons. Galliger would be green with envy!

    I'd rather get hit with a sticky grapefruit than a sticky wicket.

    Would those be carried in mags or clips?

    I was once ticketed on Halloween for throwing marshmallows! On a night where eggs were the projectile of choice I, as a prankful teenager, couldn't resist the look on my victims' faces when they waited for the splat only to watch the Jet Puff bounce & roll. The policeman, and eventually the judge, found surprisingly...no difference.

    If they would put some vegitables in there with the fruit we'd have a good tossed salad.

    Just make sure that you have your bread helmet on.

    Now that is funny! Even though you got into trouble that is something to pass down to the grand-kids, I'm proud of you!
