Florida Man Tells Police Prostitute Stole His Wallet, $600

Im going to start off first by posting the story:

FORT PIERCE, Fla. —  A man in Fort Pierce went to the police after a prostitute he hired allegedly stole his wallet, containing $600.

Police say Stanley Copling will not be charged with soliciting a prostitute because they didn’t see the transaction take place.

Copling said his wallet was missing after the woman left Tuesday night. He said he didn’t see her take it, but she was the only person in the room.

Police have no name or detailed suspect information. Copling said the woman had dirty blond hair and blue eyes.


While reading this story I couldn’t help but to chuckle a little because I really did not things like this happen.  You always here stories of drug dealers going to the cops trying to report that their drugs had been stolen.  What I think is really funny about this story is the description of the prostitute “dirty blonde hair, and blue eyes.”

A shocking admission…

I have a shocking admission to make.  After this, friends and family may choose to disown me.  I may be cast into the streets and my name forever erased from memory.

Well, here goes.

I don’t like anime.

It’s true.  I know it’s cool to like anime now, but I’m sorry, I just don’t get it.  For the longest time I had this vague idea that maybe I wasn’t watching the right anime.  That great anime show that was going to change my mind was just right around the corner, and I somehow kept picking the bad ones.

I’ll give you a brief list of the reasons my mind explodes on contact with anime:

1.) Female character voices that reach window shattering pitches.

2.) Musical scores that are stuck in a perpetual crescendo.

3.) Cherry blossoms.  (Just watch one.)

That said, I do like making fun of anime.  Some anime has that perfect blend of awkwardness that is one parts melodrama and one part bad translation.   An anime I recently watched had eloquent episode titles such as “Deep Feeling” and “Attack.”  Priceless.

Even though I enjoy making fun of anime, I may have to stop watching.  If you read my previous post, you know that I’m convinced Chris Hansen from To Catch a Predator is watching over everything we do and lurking behind every closed door.  What is the problem with anime, you may ask.  If you have to ask, then I may kindly inquire, have you ever watched anime?

Preteen looking girls with huge breasts are something of an anime theme.  Without disproportionate women that constantly shriek and cry, I’d say it’s not genuine anime.  You may have been duped.

Chris definitely would not approve.
