When you first said cougar, I thought you meant the other kind.

You're making this up to see if anyone's paying attention, right? A cougar?!?!

PB said...

Nope definitely not making it up. Wait and see it should make the news tonight. From the radio reports there is a large media contingent gathering.

Funny how a cougar shooting in Lakeview can generate more media interest than a people shooting in Uptown.

^ How true!

They should have used the 'bad smelling man' in McDonalds to repel the cougar.

Saw some video of the late cougar.

The cops earned their pay tonight!

I guess I could make a joke.

Police Spokesman:

The Officers Approached the Cougar and ordered him to drop his weapon. The cougar pointed his weapon at the police officers and they fired 12 shots hitting him at least 5 times. The cougar was pronounced dead on the scene and was a member of the Insane Uptown Felines Street Gang.

Cougar video. Wait till the end.

PB said...

I watched through to the end twice what was i supposed to see at the end?

IrishPirate said...

The dead cougar.

My recollection of the video, which may be impaired by alcohol and hookers at this point, is that the beginning of the video showed a bunch of Chicago's Finest standing around something draped with a bag of some type. Later the video showed what was under the bag........Mr. Former Cougar.
