Ralphy, if you don't earn your prize by Friday, I'm going to drink that likker and smoke that cigar this weekend. I'm taking Jack and Quinton camping and I like a good cigar and a few sips of whiskey around the camp fire after I get the boys asleep in the tent.
Yeah. Your loss is my gain.
......maybe the cop he was riding with was a
Facist and roughed him up and he is in the hospital.........
Seems like you like to run your suck too Marcus.
Now that I have a deadline I'll stop shuffling my feet. I like doing things with a bang. I have tentative plans to ride on New Years Eve. Now there'll be bacon in action that night!
Tentative plans??? Well that isn't a "for sure" thing. Where's the proof?
Not at all "Ralphy." I'm not here to run interference for Jim or Acidman. I've read the posts and noted your absence. I just figured you were hiding under a rock or some other excuse. Looks like I was correct.
Stuff it Linda. It's called a process. You have to apply to ride.
Correct about what Marcus?
Damn, boy, you are great!!
Go fight your fight with Jim & Acidman. Leave the thinking to the rest of us.
Do you really think the PO-lice are gonna let anyone, much less someone like you, with derogatory remarks and questions in hand (allegedly), ride with them on such a busy and dangerous night like New Years Eve?
Depending on who you ride with, New Years Eve sucks ass. Every time I was on patrol on a New Years, it was all DUI, DWI, cleaning vomit out of the back of the cruiser, and taking drunk drivers to jail.
Good for a few laughs, but that's about it. Cleaning some drunk's puke out of your car all night long isn't any fun, and half the time you smell the shit all through the rest of your shift. Gah.
You evaded the question Marcus. If you're going to talk shit, at least validate it.
" I just figured you were hiding under a rock or some other excuse. Looks like I was correct." ( POST from 9:19 p.m.)
I did not evade the question, but you sure did try and evade the obvious! hahaha
Since you evidently do not possess the ability to comprehend the written word, I re-wrote what is now so evident to anyone reading this post.
And I don't talk shit.
Look, "RALPHY aka RALPH MOUTH", like others on this blog, we have seen you spout tough, but that's all. Jim has a challenge out there. You accepted the challenge. Acidman called you on the time limit.
What does it take for you to fulfill your end?
You have already admitted to dragging your feet. Is this the "process" you spoke about in the entry "Posted by "Ralphy" at December 3, 2003 09:19 PM?"
I like Linda's take on tihs. "WHERE'S THE PROOF?"
With all of the paperwork you've spoken of, surely you can:
1. Scan the key papers. You know, the ones with Department Letterheads and/or Seals, your name, the ride-dates applied for, etc.
2. Redact the most sensitive of your personal data, then format 'em as PDF files.
3. E mail the PDFs to Rob.
4. Ask Rob to post 'em here for all to see.
That'd be proof enough for now, until you actually GO on the ride. New Years? Most agencies won't allow that. But ,if you can, well, go for it.
Rhetoric is not proof. Never will be, either.
That said, I really, truly hope you'll do the ride and get the prize. But, the jury is out, now.

Raging Dave may be able to back up my idea of riding on the next full moon night. I know it brings out the "crazies."
I once supplemented my very poor teaching salary a couple of nights a week waitressing in the lounge of an up-scale restaurant-lounge. I even had a "dress code." Black short shorts, dark nylons, and black boots with a "nice" blouse were okay during the week, but long dresses (mine were halter-topped) were required on the weekends. I swore after the first full moon night, that I'd never work another one.
Acidman, did you notice the difference on full moon nights?
Marcus, you're the one who hasn't been around for the many reasonable, interesting comments Ralphy has been leaving recently.
"If you're going to talk shit, at least validate it."
Now THAT'S calling the kettle black...don't ya think??
"Now that I have a deadline I'll stop shuffling my feet."
Sound like proof right there that you weren't at all serious.
Good morning, MS ANNA,
I have been around long enough to see enough of Ralphy's trolling. I have seen and read his "other" comments as well.
At this point, though, like Acidman, I tire of this B.S. It's boring. Moving on now............
I am trying to get on New Years night. If I can't then the date will change, so be it. As for the laundry list of "proof". Way to much work. A PDF file? You'll get a digital picture and the Officer's name and work number. That's it.
Your feeble attempts to "troll" me have failed. I read this blog reguarly and unlike you, only comment when I have something worthwhile to share. What is this any of your business anyhow?
And I get a kick out of your comment. "At this point, though, like Acidman, I tire of this B.S. It's boring." What are you his spokesman now? I think he can, and does, speak for himself. Why do you feel the need to align your thinking with Acidman anyhow? ("like Acidman"). I've never had the stomach to tolerate bootlickers and asskissers like you. Learn to think and speak on your own.
What's your issue anyhow? Just come right out and say it and stop cowtoeing around your agenda.
Thank you for the thoughtful comment.
You indeed missed the point of my post. Yeah, once you've DONE the ride, a picture and the cop I.D. is cool. Gets you the bottle, but not the cigar.
The cigar is dependent on reasonable proof that you indeed asked the host-officer the questions/statements you posted to begin with. Lost on that? Here's Rob's original post and comment thread
What my earlier post in THIS thread was suggesting, was that in the interim, to show proof before THIS FRIDAY (per Rob's deadline), that you've done something more substantial than just blow shit about stepping up to the challenge.
And, "New Years", huh???
Rob posts last night:
Ralphy, if you don't earn your prize by Friday, I'm going to drink that likker and smoke that cigar this weekend.
Ralphy, in light of the above, I'm not even sure you HAVE until "New Years" on this.
Instead of the sorry-assed excuse of wating for Rob's deadline to quit "dragging your feet", maybe you should have kept your word when Rob posted the photo of the bottle and cigar. That's when you said "alright, I'll make it happen".
Certainly, I think it not at all unreasonable to ask you for some kind of proof, of whatever progress you claim, or paperwork initiated.
You're presuming to extend Rob's deadline without such proof? That's weak.
Shit, Ralphy. Get it together. Post the proof and go on the ride. I really DO want to raise that glass in a toast to your success.
Hope you don't disappoint the crowd.

I Really have no desire to get into a pissing match with you over details. I'll ignore the petty insults from your last post this time. We seem to get along well now and I'd like to keep it that way. Si?
As for the deadline, Acidman can go ahead and enjoy the booze and cigar on the camping trip. I already have plans this friday and will be damned if I'm going to spend it handing out traffic citations and harrassing teenagers. As for the challenge, I will still ride anyhow, and hopefully if the Sheriff's office cooperates, it'll be New Years Eve.
