Nothing that happens in the smegma-encrusted foreskin of America known as Florida surprises me.

jonmc-Do you read Carl Hiassen mysteries? The early ones are absolutely fucking brilliant and funny about how strange Florida is. The newer ones are a bit weak, although I just read the latest, which is better than the past three or so. His book on Disney is also pretty good.

Do you read Carl Hiassen mysteries?

Yup. And Tim Dorsey, too. And I spent 2 years of my life living in the circus of the damned known as Dade County. Florida deserves it's own Fark tag, and it got one.

Didn't this happen a year or so ago? Also in Florida, also a 6 year old? I think I even remember a mefi thread on it -

Steve Tuttle, a spokesman for Taser International, said in a statement that “the Taser device has been shown to be medically safe when used on children.”

Wow. I want to see the study that established THAT little gem. Whooeee, baby! Assuming this isn't just PR flack making stuff up, turn Nikki Craft and the anti-vivisectionists loose on those people. Yowzah!

You leave Nikki Craft out of this. She's got enough to do.

what if you used a taser on your smegma-encrusted foreskin? would it loosen up?
posted by mr.marx 07 June | 11:47
since I don't have a foreskin, I couldn't say. But if you want to experiment, knock yourself out.

What do you tell a woman who has been tasered?

Nothing. She obviously didn't listen the first time.

mygothlaundry: yes, there was a thread about it (earlier this year?). I think this article is referring to the same incident.

dios: bad, very bad but, saints preserve us, I laughed.

They're just building up an immunity to the taser so's they have an excuse to shoot them once they get older.

god, this thread is sick funny.

In between tasering little kids and frying adults in electric chairs, I'd bet Florida's utility bills are shocking.

Speak roughly to your little boy,
And beat him when he sneezes:
He only does it to annoy,
Because he knows it teases.
