Area Man Arrested After Calling 911 And Demanding Return Of Winnipeg Jets

The area being Winnipeg, of course.

Via Deadspin, a bit of the Winnipeg Free Press report:

WINNIPEG — At least one local hockey fan thinks it’s criminal the Winnipeg Jets haven’t returned home.

A 33-year-old resident of Lundar, Manitoba is facing numerous charges after allegedly making a series of 911 calls which included demanding RCMP officers somehow bring the National Hockey League back to the province.

"He began the conversation by saying he wanted the Jets back. He was quite upset about it," a justice source told the Free Press on Wednesday.

Marvelous.

Oooo Morty, you need to head over to Puck Daddy for a taste of some meaty Swedish weirdness compliments of Henrik Zeterrberg and his zany friends.

I wonder if Charlie Chaplain officiated the ceremony.

Ha, get it?

Ahahaha good lord that's odd.

As for the Chaplin thing: ummm, because they're wearing old-timey swimsuits? Does Chaplin go to the beach in one of his movies? I can't remember if he does...

Also: Zetterberg's bride is, like, agonizing hot.

Mr. Speaker said...

Double entendre stuff...magical!!

And yes, I spelled his name wrong cuz a chaplain is all religious and shit. I blogged it to save you the trouble...BLOG FIGHT!!!

I just went to your site and read your highlighted version of the joke and finally got it. I'm a moron.

Mr. Speaker said...

Ha! Too funny. And I thought I was too hung-over to understand anything let alone get my eyes to focus. Now they are irrevocably damaged thanks to Zetterberg's stupidity. Wife is a hottie tho.
