Hey! Are you wearing Lollipop’s underpants?

April 9, 2008

Blog Guy, Where can I buy used underpants belonging to a major drug trafficker?

drug-lord-160.jpgBoy, I wish you had asked me that yesterday! Down in Brazil they had a huge sale of stuff confiscated from the mansions of a Colombian guy named Juan Carlos Ramirez Abadia.

You mean Lollipop?

Yes. I can see you really know your drug traffickers. Anyway, thousands of people clamored to buy his stuff. I’m not sure how smart that was, though. Sure, Lollipop is spending 30 years in prison, but what do you think he’ll do if he breaks out, which can happen in Brazil?

Uh, track down his underwear and the filthy pond scum who bought it?

Bingo. That’s what I’d do.

He must’ve been TAKING drugs when he bought that green underwear!

I’m trying to figure out something to say here about the underwear, but I’m too mesmerized by that police officer (I assume) and his gleaming white uniform trousers – complete with black belt.

Short and round and tanned and dorky,
the cop from Ipanema goes searching,
And when he bends over, the drug dealers
Go ARGH!!!

He probably would not want the underpants back, even if he escapes prison…after all…he probably …”c*&##d” them when they arrested him!

Juan thought for sure that the camouflaged underwear would make him undetectable by the police…unfortunately, they didn’t blend well with the dumpster he was hiding behind…

Did he earn his nickname in prison? Forget it. I’m sorry I even asked. Brrrrhrrhrr.

Looks like the “Kick-Me” sign fell off.
