    Royal Tenenbaum:
    “You can’t keep boys cooped up like jackrabbits”………
    “I’m not talking about dance lessons…..

    I’m talking about putting a brick through the other guy’s windshield”……

      The throwing of water ballons is very reminiscent of the snowball throwing incident which led…ultimately to the downfall of Narvik.

    Now that the G does mention it,
    via the antics of brother Royal Tenenbaum,
    it has been an extremely long time since the therapy of throwing water balloons!
    Harmless, yet effective.
    Great release……

    An excursion of the news hound stringer staff
    to launch a bunch of these !
    We gather the troops
    and visit several “select” locals,
    real toads,
    that also need a little
    humor to expose their attitudes
    and to assist them in their comprehension of themselves…….
    Yes, it is time!
