News, but not the serious kind
Assume the position, Mom!
From China comes a story about a police chief who has taken down nearly 50 of his relatives, including brothers, cousins and in-laws. Can you imagine the family Thanksgiving gatherings if this guy was your relative?
“You’re under arrest.”
“Uncle Eddie! Look at my toy!”
“More pumpkin pie, Edward?”
“Okay, that was a warning shot!”
But what isn’t clear from the story is WHY he’s arrested so many relations. Is he in the Corleone family? Is he Barney Fife? Or is he just the laziest cop in the history of the world?
“Ya know, it looks cold outside, Sweetie! I think I’ll just stay indoors and arrest you…”
