|THE AIRHEADZONAN ARCHETYPE|
Saturday, November 9, 2013
People sometimes ask me why I want to move to Reno, Nevada, as soon as possible. There are several answers I could give, but the simplest answer is almost as good as any of the others...
Because Reno, Nevada, is NOT Phoenix, Arizona.
You’ve heard me complain before... about the low wages, the lack of education and sophistication, the slow thinking and slow moving and slow driving people of Airheadzona.
Well, I knew I was overdue in getting something fresh posted here at ‘Ferret-Faced Fascist Friends’, so I decided to run with this thang because I can knock it out very quickly before I have to leave for work again.
I am pulling these 8 PM to 6 AM “graveyard shifts” for my employer, and during the night / early morning hours we have very limited computer access; most websites are blocked, but a small handful of them we are permitted to view.
Last week, when I moaned that we didn’t have access to much in the way of news sites, a veteran co-worker told me of a site where I could find some local news. In exploring that website, I discovered that they post, month by month, some of the more unique police mug shots – all of them from the greater Phoenix metropolitan area.
So, for 2.5 “graveyard shifts” I kept myself occupied by looking through a year’s worth of strange Phoenix police mug shots. (Each photo has an arrow to the left and right of the person’s image, allowing you to click forward or backward. And all of the mug shots are categorized by month.)
I hadn’t seen too many of these mug shots before I knew this was going to be a future blog bit at ‘F-FFF’. Maybe all y’all could show mug shots of similar characters from your neck of the woods, I don’t know. But somehow I get the feeling that most states couldn’t match Airheadzona in sheer numbers and bizarreness. I mean, here we are yakkin’ not about “dumb and dumber”, but about “dumber and dumbest”. Phoenix is a very, very “special” place, if you catch my drift.
Below are a few “special” police mug shots from just the month of October but, really, none of the other pictures are to be missed:
2013 – OCTOBER:
As the website states: “Isn't this a merry group? [They] have all been indicted on bestiality charges. They're accused of engaging in sex with a dog.”
Frankly, I think perhaps the man on the left and the woman on the right should have been charged with having sex with TWO dogs!!
Just the other night, Brother Nappy and I watched ‘HIS GIRL FRIDAY’, a 1940 black and white movie starring Cary Grant, Rosalind Russell, and Ralph Bellamy. It was really funny and the creative storyline was extremely clever. (Probably, today, only the writers of the TV series ‘Frasier’ would be capable of writing something as intelligently crafted as ‘His Girl Friday’ was.)
So, I don’t go in much for the really modern movies of today. Therefore, I never did see the 1993 movie ‘DAZED AND CONFUSED’, but perhaps you did. Apparently some dude named Jason London was in the movie and played a character named “Pink” Floyd. Well, “Pink” Floyd shows up in the FOX 10's Mug Shot Gallery for December 2012 & January 2013.
Here’s what the website commentary noted:
“Jason London was one of the stars of the movie ‘Dazed and Confused’, and according to police, it's also the best way to describe his night in Scottsdale. Now he's accused of defecating in a squad car.”
Mr. London, “Dear boy, you look absolutely awful.” The next time you want to appear foolish, “why don't you try ‘acting’? It's so much easier.”
