Isn't This the Name of a Drink?

Tijuana Slingshots.

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.

This is the failed narco nation state that we have on our southern border attempting to be our "partner" in keeping terrorists out of the country and who has by means of encouragement or negligence, sent over 10 million of it's citizens to this country and severely unbalanced a large portion of our social spending.

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.

The brass will probably issue us slingshots, but we will only be able to use ping-pong balls with them.

SCC isn't fining them a dollar. SCC got a copyright on the phrase and anytime it is uttered or typed, you have to pay a dollar.

Capitalism at it's finest. I for one would like to propose t-shirts with the phrase imprinted upon them and the SCC flag.

What do you say SCC? I'll split with you 50-50.

Sounds more like a Social Disease!

e.g. "Did you hear what happened to Ron?"

"No what happened?"

"He got into a car with a He-she and came out with a case of the Tijuana Slingshots!"

"Damn! You know there ain't even an ointment for that yet!"

To Sgt's test answer...that was some very funny and creative stuff! Just when I think most of us have lost a sense of humor, I am reminded there are many very DANGEROUS (in a good way) intelligent minds out there. Thanks for the chuckle!

For calendar year 2006 the Area Two Gun Team recovered 215 Tijuana Slingshots, however due to cutbacks in Felony Review, they were only able to get city charges on them.
