Pick and Choose Policing.


I was strolling through town with the paramour yesterday. Busy busy as Sundays are wont to be. At the top of Grafton Street unfunny comedian David McSavage held sway with a microphone, insulting people willy nilly and playing 'Twist and Shout' on an acoustic guitar- both blunderbussing offenses in my view. Under every cash machine some variation of hobo sat, demanding money from people, Chuggers (charity muggers) were out in force, there was didgeridoo playing dude and a man with a puppet dancing to Amy Winehouse outside HMV, oh and the occasional 'statue' was taking a much deserved fag break.
On Wicklow street we watched two Ban Gardas bravely tackle a skinny teenager who was busking. 'Move it along' the one wearing make-up Lily Savage wouldn't have worn in daylight said, 'you can't sing here.'
We stood outside the Louis Vuitton luggage display window (drool). I looked at the travel cases. The paramour watched the guards, his green/brown eyes narrowing.
'Amazing that they pick on some harmless kid singing Wonderwall, but they leave that utter bollocks at the top of the street alone.' He said as the young lad packed up his guitar and slouched up the road, his Converse slapping dejectedly against the pavement.
'Yep.' I said.
We watched the two women proceed up the street, making a fine circle to avoid an aggressive looking tramp sitting outside the Centra hassling people for coins.
Amazing.

i'd say even if you went up to them and said "that tramp is intimidating people" they'd say "there's nothing we can do".

Hassling the belligerent might involve some effort.

Converse clad Wonderwallers are an easy job, allowing our hard-working Peace Guardians to quickly resume their pleasant Sunday stroll.

Moving statues, the very worst kind of statues.
That's exactly it Morgor and Gimmie. Skinny kid warbling away or drunken reprobate giving all and sundry lip. Gee which one is in more need to a cop talking too, I wonder.
I'm going to garden, it's 17 degrees. I cannot understand this weather but I'll be damned if I'm going to waste it. Plus I had a sports massage at 8:30 this morning and I'm buggered if I'm going to waste feeling this limber sitting around at my desk.

Power is wasted on the guards.

Btw, the term 'Ban Garda' no longer exists on account of it being sexist, but mostly because 'fear' Garda has too many justifiable translingual connotations.

Dublin is a tiphead why should we be suprised at this? Ban guards should be constrained to desk duties and "makin the tay" back at the staion.

So what's the deal? Is it just impossible to prosecute beggars? There must be some reason (not a good one, I'd say, but a reason nonetheless) that they avoid them like the plague?

I'd say anyone with a puppet needs working on more than some poor kid who just learned is fourth guitar chord. Puppets...christ.

I think you can move beggers on, not sure if any one bother to prosecute them.
Wot!? Not 'Ban ' no more? Bah, stupid times, always moving on.
Agreed too, Puppeteers have no place on public streets, nor clowns.
There was a terrific looper outside the Green dancing and pointing at his own reflection in the window. I would have cheerfully given him money if he'd wanted it. That level of 'teh crazy' is most entertaining.

I am cleaning out a shed and the spiders in there are as bug as my hand and don't appear to be alarmed by me as much as I am of them.

Ugh - cleaned out our garage yesterday, getting it ready for winter - spiders in there I wouldn't tangle with for all the beer in Boston.

Frightening isn't it? We've got these big fuckers that spin massive webs in the eaves and drop down on single threads to have a look at what's going on. I've bolted twice and went hiawatha with a sweeping brush once. It's exhausting trying to move shit and watch those fuckers at the same time.

I felt guilty the other day for walking by a busker in the subway without tipping. I never, ever do , but this was an old man playing an instrument from Chinese opera that was so beautiful I almost cried.
Lovely.

Fear Garda - ha!

They were probably afraid McSavage was going to be unfunny at them. The Unfunny can be tough to deal with. Even the most equable law enforcement officer might be sorely tempted to insert his truncheon up the unfunniest of the perp's nostrils. The Street Unfunny are just asking for a case of police brutality. The bobby on the beat does well to just keep the head down and walk on by.

FMC, did you watch the clip Michael K had for the Hot Slut of the Day? It's awesome.

FMC...don't wish to unduly alarm you, but there are spiders in Dublin called "false widows"...newly arrived in the country...3-4 years, but they are a little bigger than your average housepider, but give a nasty bite..not dangerous usually, but painful, like a wasp.

Look em up on the www!

Medbh, I haven't I'll go look.
False Widow Spiders??? Ye-ack.
I moved a wood pile today and I swear to you, the things that crawled/scuttled out of that thing. I'm still scratching. I do like the shower cap idea though, and a white suit the CSI crowd wear.
Sam, McSavage is so unbearably unfunny he's been bopped on the nose more than once by irate passers-by.

Medbh! Who was that fabulous creature!!? What is True Blood and where on this EARTH can I find me some more of it?

FMC, I am loving Lafayette and Tara on "Trueblood." There was also this funny bit about humans drinking vampire blood for either a radical viagra effect or similar to dropping shrooms. It's the new HBO series from Alan Ball (he of the Six Feet Under Fame) based on a graphic novel series about a young woman who can read people's thoughts and falls in love with a vampire. It has this civil rights sub-plot where vampires want to live peacefully with humans.

Medbh - I caught an episode of that. Pretty damn interesting. If I could manage to get a TV show on my schedule, that'd be a shitload of fun. Unfortunately, it's a few years past my vampire phase. Yes, I had one.

Not proud.

You can place it in front of a jail employee on his way to

That's pretty amazing as the fleshlight is desperate and cannot find a date. It feels that you are wed. Pero kung iisipin kong mabuti, malamang nga ay pagod na pagod s'ya sa

For the grass jelly, I thought, I don't talk a lot, a lot of fanny flesh on display. But just that is up to you! Most of the clothing and even fleshlight sleeves from empire necks. They took my sister and my mom pressing buttons must have sounded like scatman john. As all fleshlight / Flesh Jack toys, cleaning is as easy as it should be open, and it wasn't so
tiny that I don't know for sure that Stoya is getting four different fleshlights.

Pre eclampsia is one of the best materials that allow it to center on the inhalation and back
down and out again on the exhalation. Compared to most fleshlight
textures the Forbidden may seem quite simple, but that doesn't mean it's new to
everyone. During an orgasm either by way of intercourse or masturbation.
