News, but not the serious kind
High times on the old Marijuana Plantation
Okay, here’s some interesting news. Turns out soldiers in Mexico have just discovered a huge “marijuana plantation” in the middle of a desert.
Incredible aerial photos show a gigantic patch of green, surrounded by sand. What did everybody think was growing there, cilantro?
I mean, it’s big enough to be called a PLANTATION, for Lord’s sake. That’s like Tara, and people KNEW about Tara!

Say pal, do you have a restroom here I can use?
Thanks. Is it a nice big clean one?
Yessir, five stalls! Genuine porcelain! Pure luxury!
That sounds perfect. Uh, I may be up there for a while. Is there anything I need to take with me?
Oh, a trunk full of potato chips and cookies wouldn’t hurt.
