All Muggers, Except The Dead One , Take Note: No Messin' With Seniors

Swell, we'll have groups of cocky geriatrics planning their vacations to Costa Rica with plans on assaulting some of the local gangs and maybe knocking over a bank or two before they head home.

Whoa! Did you see the size of her, uh, uh, maggot?

Seriously, that must have been a female mosquito because no male would have been able to stare at her head long enough to land there.

I'd have to instantly saw my own head off if I had one of those buggers in there.

I saw a nasty show on discovery or one of those channels about parasites, one guy had a bot-fly in his belly, another crapped out a tapeworm and pulled out as much as he could then had his wife cut it off with scissors.

Ok I've got a serious case of the willies now !

The ex military guy better watch out, the Bush administration might want to call him back to active duty.

I wonder if they were inspired by the passengers who fought back on the 9-11 hijacked flight 93?
