|[Pervert Accusation] (Per league board members of Key West) If a coach or parent abuses a child on the field there isn’t much they can do. They can remove them from the organized league. However, Key West elected leadership will allow them to still coach and be on the fields since they’re City fields. They’ll even work with the abuser and the leagues to hide the issue if they’re a certain person as long as they assaulted a child and not a city or board member. The city is more worried about tourism and protecting their Buddies than protecting children. ~Cobb3257@gmail.com

[French Revolution] Robespierre was feared during the French Revolution’s attempt at a democracy. And everyone was afraid to cross him as long as his guillotine was still working. No politician should be feared in a democracy.
|[Friday (tasteless) Joke] Adam and Eve had just had sex for the first time. Adam was relaxing by a tree, when God’s voice boomed down from above, ‘You’ve just experienced sex for the first time. How was it?’ Adam replies, ‘Oh Lord, it was great. I’ve never felt so good in my life.’
God says, ‘Where is Eve, thine wife?’
Adam replies, ‘She is washing herself, down in the river.’
Suddenly, the skies turned dark and lightning flashed and thunder sounded. God became furious and said, ‘Nooo! Now I’ll never get that smell out of the fish.’

|[Friday Joke] A lady about 8 months pregnant got on a bus. She noticed the man opposite her was smiling at her. She immediately moved to another seat. This time the smile turned into a grin, so she moved again. He seemed more amused. When on the fourth move, the man burst out laughing, she complained to the driver and he had the man arrested.
The case came up in court. The Judge asked the man (about 20 years old) what he had to say for himself.
The man replied, “Well, your Honor, it was like this: When the lady got on the bus, I couldn’t help but notice her condition. She sat under a sweets sign that said, “The Double Mint Twins are Coming” and I grinned.
Then she moved and sat under a sign that said “Logan’s Liniment will reduce the swelling”, and I had to smile.
Then she placed herself under a deodorant sign that said, “William’s Big Stick Did the Trick”, and I could hardly contain myself.
But, your Honor, when she moved for the fourth time and sat under the sign that said “Goodyear Rubber could have prevented this Accident” I just lost it…
The Queen is dead. LONG LIVE THE KING!
|[Friday Joke] Marvin was in the hospital on his death bed. The family called Marvin’s Preacher to be with him in his final moments. As the Preacher stood by the bed, Marvin’s condition seemed to deteriorate, and Marvin motioned for someone to quickly pass him a pen and paper. The Preacher quickly got a pen and paper and lovingly handed it to Marvin who frantically scribbled a note. But before he had a chance to read the note, Marvin died. The Preacher feeling that now wasn’t the right time to read it put the note in his jacket pocket.
It was at the funeral while speaking that the Preacher suddenly remembered the note. Reaching deep into his pocket the Preacher said, “And you know what? I suddenly remembered that right before Marvin died, he handed me a note, and knowing Marvin I’m sure it was something inspiring that we can all gain from. With that introduction the Preacher ripped out the note and opened it and began reading. The note said, “Hey, you are standing on my oxygen tube!”
