    This is totally an appropriate reaction by Lovely Rita the Meter Maid when her citations are ignored. She does, after all, carry that bag that makes her look like a military man. Probably has a Tommy gun in it!

      Yes, undoubtedly a Tommy gun.

        I can’t even begin to explain how hilarious this mental image is. It was funny last night, today…. I’m dying

        Dying eh?

        Of course that’s exactly what happened to John Dillinger on July 22nd 1934 when he tried to enter Chicago’s Biograph Theater without buying a movie ticket.

        I believe he had already jumped the local turnstile and snuck in to the theater. After the movie, he was escorting two lovely escorts from the theater to discuss the attractiveness of Clark Gable when Freud, who was just wandering by, was knocked in unconscious by an FBI agent.

        Sometimes, a cigar isn’t just a cigar.

        As both Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky discovered.

        🤭 Chris! I am scandalized!!
        That was really cleverly snuck in 😂🤣
