Humor Break

This is amusing, especially as Chicago crossed into 700+ homicides for the year:
  • Promising that every effort would be made to limit the impact on residents’ day-to-day lives, Chicago officials announced Wednesday that a fleet of plows was working around the clock to clear more than 18 inches of fresh bullet casings that had blanketed the metropolitan area overnight.

    Sources at the city’s Department of Streets and Sanitation confirmed that over 250 ammunition-removal vehicles had been deployed to deal with the knee-deep layer of spent cartridges, which have been steadily accumulating on Chicago’s streets, alleys, and pedestrian walkways since the previous evening.

    “Our crews have been out there all night trying to make our roadways passable, but given how quickly the handgun and semi-automatic shells have piled up, it’s going to take some time,” DSS commissioner Charles L. Williams told reporters, thanking the public for its patience while crews made their way across the stricken municipality. “We’re making good headway, but as you can imagine, it’s not an easy job, especially with casings continuing to fall throughout the city.”
The picture accompanying the article is hilarious:

Supposedly, Charlie Williams is towing cars in the "2 Inches of Brass" zones, even if the brass is only 1.5 inches.

Think of the pretty penny the city will make when they recycle all that brass. Old brass brings a good price per pound at the scrap metal yard.

Funny you show this picture, SCC.

Someone else sent me it this morning and I sent it on to some of my esteemed friends (RR owners of course).

One chap in Highland Park responded with "this cannot be real!?!?"

Egads, now I think he may have blown his triple bypass.

In any case, it was a good laugh.

If there was really that much Brass on the street, we'd see some scavengers driving through and loading up their trucks and vans. They would get there a day before the City trucks would get there (you can bet on that).

Good money $$ you know - at the Scrap Yards.

Oh well, Tally-Ho.

Naturally they are only doing the main streets. When are we going to have the side streets done and forget getting out of my garage!

What about all the casings on sidewalks, in yards, gangways, indoors.? Is the city going to clean those up too or is the homeowner stuck with the work?

Ah, we need a new gun law. It would restrict thugs from using semi-auto weapons. A revolver or derringer would limit the brass on the street, and da boyz might have to get close enough to their targets, to actually hit them.

The casings are deep enough that I claimed dibs on the parking space I shoveled.
