He must have been nervous…

Boise, Idaho Police are searching for a Man who robbed a bank the other day. He apparently gave the cashier a note, telling her it was a robbery, threatened violence, and from what I’ve heard fired a shot or two into the ceiling….
This Man really needs to find another way to make money! He was convicted back in 1978 for robbing another bank, and how do they know this if they are still looking for him??? Tuesday while robbing the bank, HE TOLD the Cashier his NAME!
Shallow end of gene pool? Taco short of a combo platter? Certainly not the brightest bulb in the pack.
 
In Caldwell, Idaho yesterday a man found an Alligator hangin around on one of the streets. He picked it up (brave or idiot?) put it in his car and took it to the Police Station, where it’s in a holding cell until Fish and Game can come get it. From the pictures on the news last night it looked to be about 3-4 ft long, and so far no one has any idea where it came from.
 
Last but not least, every year in Eagle Idaho they have, Eagle Fun Days. The Fire Department has an annual fundraiser it’s the Rocky Mountain Oyster Feed, which brings in tons of money. (For those who don’t know Rocky Mountain Oysters are Bull Testicles). A New York Ad Agency offered to  promote it for free, so the Volunteer Firefighter who was in charge gave them a few ideas of what they wanted and told them to have fun with it. Well they made a commercial, it’s a cartoon bull who’s lamenting the loss of his balls with poetry,(it begins with, "My testies, my testies, my junk, my balls,” and at the end of the commercial says that if he finds out who took them he’s gonna cut their balls off and eat them, see how they like it, (there was some swearing). The Mayor of Eagle saw the ad before it aired and has told the Firefighters that it was NOT to be aired or she would pull the plug on their fund raiser. Funny thing though, but the News stations in reporting this story have shown us all the ad… ironic no? lmao I found it funny, but I do understand the Mayor’s point of view. Eagle is very proud of it’s family values. They are afraid it will offend.
(A late entry, David said it, and I was thinking it earlier. It probably will be a record breaking attendance this year.)
 
Welcome to my world… don’tcha just love a good news day? LOL BIG HUGS, Steph

    More info on the oyster jingle, please. Could you hum a few bars?
     
    Have you ever had them? I have. They were… chewy? Bouncy? Meaty? No adjective seems appropriate here, I\’m afraid.
     
    And alligators? In IDAHO??

    Being in Alabama, I find a certain comfy feeling, knowing that I won\’t have to study too hard if I contemplate a move to Idaho.  I always love how the righteously outraged manage to point out the websites or news or lyrics in explicit detail that contain directions for bomb-building, or child predation or whatever bit of shocking vice that attracts their stunned gaze.  Gotta wonder though, what were those firemen thinking?  On the other hand, I predict record attendance…

    Don\’t be so harsh about Rocky Mountain Oysters!!  They just have to be prepared the correct way!!  In the midwest they use sheep, so they are smaller and much more tender!!  They should be breaded and fried in oil!!! A little salt and pepper and you\’re good to go!!  Hot sauce is optional!! Oh!!  And of course, they taste like chicken!!  LMAO!!!

    Well…There ya\’ go…
     
    Went through Salina a few weeks back and they have one of those \’Rocky Mountain Weekends\’…
     
    Here yo\’ go…Now we kin start doin\’ a li\’l cookin\’ yo\’ all, ah reckon…
    Now some of yo\’ gals don’t git enny ideas???
     
    Rocky Mountain Oysters (Montana Tendergroin)
    2 pounds bull testicles (lamb/sheep, calf or turkey testicles can also be used) 
    1 cup flour 1/4 cup cornmeal 1 cup red wine Salt, pepper, garlic powder to taste Louisiana Hot Sauce Hog lard (cooking oil can be substituted)
    Split the tough skin-like muscle that surrounds each "oyster." (use a sharp knife)
    You can also remove the skin easily if the "oysters" are frozen and then peeled while thawing.
    Set into a pan with enough salt water to cover them for one  hour to  remove some of the blood and drain. Transfer to large pot. Add enough water to float "oysters" and a generous tablespoon of vinegar. Parboil, drain and rinse. Let cool and slice each "oyster" into 1/4 inch thick ovals. Sprinkle salt and pepper on both sides of sliced "oyster" to taste.
    Mix flour, cornmeal and some garlic powder to taste in a bowl.
    Roll each slice into this dry mixture.
     Dip into milk. Dip into dry mixture.
    Dip into wine quickly (repeat the procedure for a thicker crust).
    Place into hot cooking oil.
    Add Louisiana Hot Sauce to cooking oil (it\’ll sizzle some, so be careful!).
    Cook until golden brown or tender, and remove with a strainer (the longer they cook, the tougher they get).
