Denver Cop Pulls Gun on Area McDonald's When Food Takes Too Long

I'll admit, McDonald's is not always very speedy with their food. Sometimes you have to wait for a few minutes before your order is finally done.

Still, that's no reason to pull a gun on the people inside. Especially when you're a police officer

Denver police officer Derrick Curtis Saunders has been charged with "felony menacing" for pulling his gun at an Aurora, Colorado McDonald's while waiting for his food.

According to a story in the Denver Post, Saunders and another off-duty police officer were waiting at the drive-through window back in May, when Saunders got tired of waiting and thought that a show of force would somehow make the microwaves work faster.

Saunders has been charged with felony menacing and weapons charges, as well as prohibited use of a weapon, reckless endangerment, disorderly conduct and trying to order breakfast items after 11:00 am.

There is no truth to the rumor that Saunders was actually trying to apprehend Hamburglar.

Saunders needs to make sure he doesn't burn any bridges with McDonald's, since that may be his only career option left open to him when this is all over.

Do you have any jokes about this? was the first, but let's hear from you. Leave a joke in the comments section.

  1. Hey Erik!

    Maybe that wasn't it at all. Maybe the food just wasn't up to his "caliber."

  2. @AroundIndy, that was so bad it was funny. I just tweeted that I want people to leave their own jokes in the comments section, so let's hear them.

  3. I can see the Denver McDonald's ads now: BIG MAC: #1 with a bullet!

  4. Perhaps he was just sending a message to the cashier to "get the lead out."

  5. Q. What do you get when a McDonald's cashier asks a Denver cop, "May I help you?"

    A. A loaded question!

  6. A late thought on this subject well after the fact:

    "Now that's what I call a Big Mac Attack!"

AYFKMWTS?! FBI Creates 88 Page Twitter Slang Guide


Did you get that? It's an acronym. Web slang. It's how all the teens and young people are texting with their tweeters and Facer-books on their cellular doodads.

It stands for "The FBI has created an eighty-eight page Twitter slang dictionary."

See, you would have known that if you had the FBI's 88 page Twitter slang dictionary.

Eighty-eight pages! Of slang! AYFKMWTS?! (Are you f***ing kidding me with this s***?! That's actually how they spell it in the guide, asterisks and everything. You know, in case the gun-toting agents who catch mobsters and international terrorists get offended by salty language.)

I didn't even know there were 88 Twitter acronyms, let alone enough acronyms to fill 88 pieces of paper.

The FBI needs to be good at Twitter because they're reading everyone's tweets to see if anyone is planning any illegal activities. Because that's what terrorists do — plan their terroristic activities publicly, as if they were…

Understanding 7 Different Types of Humor

One of my pet peeves is when people say they have a "dry" sense of humor, without actually understanding what it actually means.

"Dry" humor is not just any old type of humor. It's not violent, not off-color, not macabre or dark.

Basically, dry humor is that deadpan style of humor. It's the not-very-funny joke your uncle the cost analysis accountant tells. It's Bob Newhart, Steven Wright, or Jason Bateman in Arrested Development.

It is not, for the love of GOD, people, the Black Knight scene from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I swear, if anyone says Monty Python is "dry humor" is going to get a smack.

Here are some other types of comedy you may have heard and are just tossing around, willy-nilly.

Farce: Exaggerated comedy. Characters in a farce get themselves in an unlikely or improbable situation that takes a lot of footwork and fast talking to get out of. The play "The Foreigner" is an example of a farce, as are many of the Jeeves &…

What Are They Thinking? The Beloit College Mindset List

Every year at this time, the staff at Beloit College send out their new student Mindset List as a way to make everyone clutch their chest and feel the cold hand of death.

This list was originally created and shared with their faculty each year, so the faculty would understand what some of their own cultural touchstones might mean, or not mean, to the incoming freshmen. They also wanted the freshmen to know it was not cool to refer to '80s music as "Oldies."

This year's incoming Beloit freshmen are typically 18 years old, born in 1999. John F. Kennedy Jr. died that year, as did Stanley Kubrick and Gene Siskel. And so did my hope for a society that sought artistic and intellectual pursuits for the betterment of all humanity. Although it may have actually died when I heard about this year's Emoji Movie.

Before I throw my hands up in despair, here are a few items from the Mindset list for the class of 2021.

They're the last class to be born in the 1900s, and are t…
