It Ain't Just Paint

JULY 21--Meet Patrick Tribett.

The Ohio man was nabbed yesterday morning for "abusing harmful intoxicants" as he attempted to make a purchase at Bellaire's Dollar General Store. The 41-year-old Tribett, it seems, had been huffing spray paint and needed a refill.

According to a Bellaire Police Department report, Tribett's pupils were constricted and he replied slowly to their questions. Oh, and "officers observed the paint on face and hands," as can be seen in this mug shot.

Tribett, who was previously busted for assault, domestic violence, and inhaling harmful intoxicants, was booked into the Belmont County Sheriff's Office lockup. His booking photo immediately joins TSG's pantheon of favorite kooky mug shots like this one, this one, this one, and, of course, this one. (2 pages)

Merry.....FINALLY.....someone who gets it!! You have really pulled back the curtain with your post. Though the conservatives are too stupid to pick up up on it, those Obama supporters (with their stratospheric Stanford-Binet's and penchant for productive work avoidance) may quickly derive a new stream of revenue from reading your post (or, at least, having it read to them)....I mean, breaking a nail while exercising their Constitutional right to huff could lead to a whole new disability angle..."broken fingernail stress disorder". Not only from the public coffers, but I believe there is nary a warning given to the unsuspecting public by the deep pocketed spray paint industrial complex regarding this dangerous risk that has been foisted upon the members of the huffing class...Hmmmm....think I might just wipe the specks off my face and break a nail myself.....and soon....H-E-L-L-O Micronesia.....
Our nation's Constitution contains the right to huff. It's right there next to the right to kill your children before they're born. Paint huffing must remain safe and legal. You conservatives would turn back the clock, forcing these distraught and despairing unemployed young Obama voters to the back alley behind the paint store, dumpster diving for the last remnants of paint fumes from dented cans whose caps are missing. Think for a minute, cruel and heartless conservatives: What if they break a fingernail trying to push down on the capless plastic pistons?
Well, there goes the lack of evidence defense...
Sorry to disagree, but I'll bet you both a bottle of Krylon, this loser is a democrat....There are Republican losers as well, but for every one that is a Republican, likely 4-5 are democrats. You are the ones that want to take money from hard working Americans(whether Democrat or Republican) and give it to miscreants like these. As evidence, I bet both of you read the HUFFingtonpost!! Respectfully yours, B
He needed to huff a can of spray paint so that he could reach the tea bagger's moment of constitutional enlightenment....
Doesn't that take two cans?
