  11. Did anyone else read the news scroll at the bottom of the screen? Very amusing.

  12. I saw a cop this morning that makes me wish there WAS such a thing as "Stop and Kiss"!

  13. Love it. The Onion is so snarky and hysterically funny. The "news" scroll at the bottom of the screen was even funnier. There are a few cops here in Houston I'd like to 'Stop and Kiss(actually boink them deep & hard)'.

  18. Beautiful.

  19. That is hilarious, is it bad that I now want to become a cop in NYC so I can kiss all the cute black guys I see? Nevermind I know it is.

  20. There is nothing funny about crime and gun violence in our country. I'm sure the police aren't getting their jollies frisking some smelly low life drug dealer who may be armed and dangerous.

  21. Thanks Hank for your support of stricter gun control laws.

    On topic though: I wonder if more kissing is what what the world is missing?

  22. I wouldn't mind getting kissed by a number of New York's finest.

  23. While this is funny, as are most of the Onion satires, Stop and Frisk is a good program. It inconveniences some innocent citizens but helps safeguard the entire community.

  24. @Andrew: Except it does no such thing. The overwhelming majority of people stopped have had nothing to find, it wastes the resources of the cops chasing down phantoms rather than focusing on actual crimes, and breeds distrust among the communities the police are meant to serve.

    All studies of Stop and Frisk show it actually hinders the job of policing rather than helping.

  25. Best laugh in weeks!
