And I got off a Merry-Go-Round to put this here instead.
Well I have ridden the merry-go-round, got dizzy on the tilt a world, road the bumper cars till my head hurt,in between all the other rides, rode the roller coaster countless times. The rides are what I expected. The worst part of this amusement park is waitin in line with all those Intelligent Cocksures and having to deal with all thier nonsense. This is the part where I usually throw up.
Ok. I have had enough of this amusement park earth. But I still have one more ride to go on. I saved the best for last. So it's off to the Funhouse for a final laugh. And then slip into the house of mirrors back home into infinity where I belong. And loose those intelligent cocksures. They never can get past the first mirror. They wind up arguing and doubting themselves till eternity. It is a sad pathetic site I guess that's what happens when you've gone through life and you have never ever had to or wanted to see how you really look and act to others.
Next park I go to I am going to the Funhouse and house of mirrors first maybe then I can start a trend?

It's about 9:55 am. We see the cop turn into the closed antique store parking lot. They always sit there radaring people who are maybe running a little late for work. (cape may opens at 10:00 am). Believe me, there's NEVER been an accident anywhere near here.
So, the cop was running a little late and speeding to position himself so he could radar and penalize people for running a little late and speeding.
Lesson: don't go over 30mph in a 25mph zone. Some cops use these areas to get their brownie points.
I know. Been going there once or twice a summer for bout 50yrs. a little north of ya in da woods.(I always liked the lights) And it had is the same gung ho force. Well my friend if you ve ever been down there the other nine month's of the year it is like Twilightzone episode. Very strange the first time you experience d shore on the offseason.
It is the only time they can make thier revenue for the year it does suck and over the years mainly when I was a youngster had experiences with the beaches finest. I love that shore but now I just do complete stops. Hey they will even get you for Jay-walking! Not me but other people. C'mon! It's the shore for crying out loud!
Don't ever have your vehicle breakdown and take it to an island garage. Get it tuwed off the island inland even if it is a 300 dollar bill..
About 15yrs. ago I took my folks down. They were gettin up in years and we had been down there ever since I can remember stayed at the same hotel for 40yrs. Well our starter went on the car. We asked at the front desk who was good and we towed ot there.
A simple 3 hour starter and I am being nice. Took 4 days to put in! It forced us to stay 2 extra nights. And when it was finally done the bill was a wopping 1800 bucks! Well I flipped out at the garage at the motel. Wrote a letter to the Chamber. Well the garage reduced it to 1100 bucks it was still unexceptable. But live abd learn. Just lettin ya know.
