Is that an AR-15 semi-automatic assault rifle, or are you just happy to see me?

One Midland County sheriff’s deputy has reportedly been fired, and another four disciplined, when they asked a scantily-clad waitress in Williamson County to go outside the “Twin Peaks” restaurant and pose for pictures with the assault rifle the officers had in the trunk of their vehicle. They were apparently in Central Texas for a “criminal interdiction” training class.

Amazingly, some witnesses said there may have been alcohol involved.

There’s really no punch line here. I’m leaving that up to you. Have at it.

    If you look closely at her name tag, it says — what else — “Bambi.”

    What name tag? Oh, nevermind – I was two days looking at the picture before I ever noticed the rifle or the car. 🙂

    Skantily (sic) clad?!!! I’ve seen less clothes on bank tellers in Laredo!

    That’s just too awesome for words.

    Reminds me of a sportswriter friend’s advice on how to have fun when the Texas State Coaches Association meeting is in town: “Go to the nearest stripper bar and yell ‘Hey coach!’ Half the crowd will dive under the table, and the other half will turn around and say ‘Huh?'”

    At Maggie Mae’s, I was once dared to spank a coach on the ass during the TSCA and say, “Good game.” I got more free drinks than the dare originally promised.

    There is something hot about women holding rifles. They can be a topshot too.
