Isn't This the Name of a Drink?
If this isn't the name of a tropical drink, it ought to be. You all just stay here reading the blog and we're going to run out and copyright the phrase "Tijuana Slingshot."
- The police department has issued slingshots and balls to officers in the violent border city of Tijuana, where soldiers confiscated police weapons on allegations of collusion with drug traffickers.
Sixty slingshots, along with bags of ballbearings, were given to officers patrolling tourist areas.
Tijuana's police force of 2,000 officers has been without guns since Jan. 5, but some patrol alongside armed state police.
We don't know about you, but we can name at least a dozen coppers we've known over the years who considered a slingshot to be their primary impact weapon. Or secondary mayhem device. Or just a fun thing to have in their bags of tricks if it got really boring.
And from this point onwards, anyone using the phrase "Tijuana Slingshot(s)" owes us a dollar. Pay up.
