Observer Comment of the Week!

I've long told my Southern-born friends that they should change the motto down here from "The South will rise again!" to the much more appropriate "Hey y'all ... watch THIS!"

The comment was prompted by the following story:

Nude Marine, Rider Hurt in Bike Wreck

The Daily News

JACKSONVILLE North Carolina:

State troopers said a man and woman injured Friday when their motorcycle veered off the road were both naked.

Steven Sheals, 38, and his passenger, Jennifer Smith, 30, are expected to recover from their injuries.

In addition to being charged with driving while intoxicated, reckless driving, driving without a license, license revoked, expired inspection and no insurance, Sheals was charged with not wearing a helmet.

Sheals, an explosive ordnance disposal technician, is a Marine gunnery sergeant at Camp Lejeune.

Cedar's Follow-Up:

Turns out Sheals is from Ohio and Smith from New York but the comment is still funny and how often do you see Marine and Nude in the same headline?

I like both mottos!! As for the gunny - self explanatory - very much alcohol was involved.
