Well seeing you brought this up   I watched this whenever it was on Leno and thought it was staged.  I found out these are actually real people, and it is not staged.  I have to tell you it scares the heck out of me, and I have to wonder what they are teaching in school these days?  

By the way my favorite on Leno was the "Fruitcake Lady."  I actually went out of my way to find where her funeral was, to send her family my regards, as this woman gave me more laughs than I care to tell you.  This is all off the cuff with her, she was a natural!  Here you go Michael - she is hysterical.

Probably the "strangest" episode of Jay Walking that they ever filmed was the night they caught Kid Rock on the streets of LA, and he made the statement that he was going to be a huge star, or some such....
and so it was.

For those who have fought for it, Freedom has a flavor the protected will never know.

As they say, "Only in America!" ~ Forgive me, this Canadian is just fooling with yas! We have haz 'em heres too! But only 10% as many as you have there in America! Oh, I suppose that's because your population is 10x's greater!

Thanks for the link, Balladeer! My sides are aching from laughing so hard!

Oh, and Mysteria, I thought the Fruitcake Lady was a hoot! God bless her. She spoke the truth as she saw it!

Now that I'm retired, I'm so tired by 10:30, I miss all this good stuff.  Just think of all I could have learned!

Thanks for sharing these hoots.  It made my day.

God bless,
Rae
