First they become participation trophy athletes. They then transform into Special Snowflakes. And finally become adults who rat out their own. East Germany is alive and well on our shores.

A recent report in Reuters takes the surprising step of hailing college students who report friends and fellow students for breaking COVID-19 social distancing rules as "whistleblowers".

"As some U.S. college students party, others blow the whistle," Reuters says. In some cases these supposed "whistleblowers" are going so far as to make 'undercover videos' capturing on or off-campus parties, which school authorities have sought to clamp down on given the general rise in infections for many campuses as they struggle to make it through the fall semester.

Apparently school administrations and security are actually pouring through footage of 'illicit parties' to identify coronavirus police rule-breakers and either send them packing or at least impose severe punishment. Town police departments have also recently released footage of Covid-19 flouting parties, as with one recent egregious case of COVID-19 positive students actually hosting a gathering.

The first rule of hand cuff sex, Always have the key before you engage. Or so I've been told.

Police in Britain responded to an early morning call from a man who became trapped in a pair of handcuffs in an apparent case of romance gone awry.

The Greater Manchester Police's Rochdale station said officers responded to a home at 4:30 a.m. Friday to help a couple having difficulty with a pair of handcuffs.

This made me chuckle out loud. How do you get the press to report Joe Biden as a sexual assault perp?

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Trump has announced his pick for Supreme Court justice: Joe Biden. By nominating Biden, Trump has forced the Dems' hands, making them believe the sexual assault claims and allegations of inappropriate, creepy behavior against the former vice president.


The "4D chess" move forced Dems to immediately accuse Joe Biden of sexual assault and reverse their position on the current claims against him.

"We now believe Tara Reade," said a somber Kamala Harris, "and we will do everything in our power to destroy this man's life."

Jim Morrison of The Doors was acquitted on charges of lewd and lascivious behavior, but was found guilty of exposing himself during a concert at The Dinner Key Auditorium in Coconut Grove a year and a half earlier. At his trial at the Dade County Courthouse in Miami, Judge Goodman sentenced Morrison to six months hard labor and a $500 (270), fine for public exposure and sixty days hard labor for profanity. The sentence was appealed, but Morrison was never brought to trial, as he would die in Paris France on July 3, 1971. via thisdayinmusic.com

Karma meets the Genius Award Winner.

Meet Bounty Cheramy.

The 22-year-old Florida resident was arrested for drunk driving early Sunday after allegedly slamming his Mazda into an electronic sign cautioning motorists to “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.”

According to a probable cause affidavit, cops found Cheramy outside his car around 12:30 AM on the Tamiami Trail in Port Charlotte on the state’s Gulf Coast. Cheramy’s auto had sustained “heavy front-end damage,” reported a deputy who also noted that “the county sign board trailer had been struck.”

Cheramy told police that he was talking on the phone when he “suddenly struck something,” but was unsure “what he had struck or how he hit it.”
