This is not my favorite kind of story. I'd love stupid criminals story and if you talk to most detectives they say that just about. Every criminal have ever come across as a certain degree of stupidity. So we have a story. Of a Bozo that was. Bamboozled by a locked car door. Now from Portland Oregon comes the story a Bozo Ruben talker. Who decided to take a little nap inside and unlock car. Now we're gonna have to assume at this point that he didn't notice it was. A police car. Parked in the south -- -- and station parking lot. And bears another problem are Bozo when colored once inside the he couldn't figure out how to unlock the door to let himself out. He felt so trapped he used his finger to -- help. In condensation on the window. But apparently. No. One noticed until the day shift arrived the next more -- -- it was found inside the car freed and charged with criminal list of all right let's get back to our our our phones were gonna go to now we have two mikes on hold to this is the Mike from the looks like the 334. -- -- how are you might. I'm greatly enjoy your show I'm -- enemies bound and down and back then and now they're saying about the snakes number one a transplanted corner. -- in Lafayette.

And don't come to New Orleans and Louisiana they would be like -- the -- Gyllenhaal. Well you know I mean I'm with you now the Winter Olympics -- can do it out by. The summer Olympic I think being a structure. Would cost so much money that if you look at what these cities -- after mile actually. There's never the pay off on the back again it's just business. Now let me ask -- if if you're a bit much in the Olympics and I mentioned this to my wife and she just -- while you're just aren't sensitive. I'm getting a little fed up with. Every person's there got some type of whiny story about time to time I wanna win this for my grandmother a lot of windows for my grandfather of the past while wanna win this for. This person and that person. I once a -- just want to go there and insults so foolish enough to win it for themselves. Just exactly right the personal interest stores like -- -- it's it's over the top I mean it it's a real. Real significant. Unique store. Like it but. Not every one but if he knows everyone's everyone's. Everyone's -- a story you know. A lot of -- away just from my dog. Yeah I wanna -- my cell like a look at some promotions. And -- contract to make some cash with Cuba. I've created says it's too much but. Sure actually -- -- and -- said that on delta bought about all ground for example the ground up ground I don't know some respectable war. A war in the -- But I mean. And I wanna know what can I do to keep stay away from yeah -- that runs. That's about -- I don't know. Thirty yards from the house forty yards now. What do I need to do because I'd hate snakes that -- would -- Wednesday. Was normal -- the Internet but it was -- -- -- right -- the practice it is my question was. Does the fallen to freedom of religion or freedom of the nut job and I think it's free of -- no job no I can help. -- that I can help him because I would be the same way I what I would not want snakes in my yard so. Here's the way to keep snakes out of New York okay. Move some place where they don't have snakes in the yard. I need you demonstrated that. Our coach I think I got a -- You know and I don't PP at all for you know it's been important programs like compare career and it just have a dog in the a moth balls.

That same banks in the country just a little bit. But it's not it's not like second awards valued and -- as well all -- -- a lot older. Our our should not the ground and I guess is that they do that legally because of the water table in the you know at the ground so low which I understand that. Well when when I lived in New Orleans east. We lived on the war relived all only Carmel and I had to have a doctor in the in the back of my house and -- a beautiful home it was on the war. In one day. I'm I'm looking over the doc and I see something that wrapped around mighty -- one of the pilings underneath the deck. And my first glance I was trying to figure out. How in the world what is that now I realize. And my heart starts pounding. This is some huge snake. That wrap itself around. So I'm gonna draw. Another try to be brave -- normally I'm I'm fearful of this okay so right I don't get much trouble. And I just played at -- -- the snake on the on though that the -- Snake didn't move. Didn't even mood at that point. I put the shovel up and up all my life it's time to -- We need to find another place to live. I am so fearful of these snakes. But I thought I can't imagine going to a church if I want to church on Sunday morning. And they and and and the pastor said look. You need to prove to me that you are good member you need to prove to me that you really have faith in the lord stick your hand. It helps the group couple on the -- on -- it up a bit hectic I can be listened. I should be Jewish journey and I put it and all callers that at all it didn't look like -- lately I can do.
