Mark Campano, 56, of Cuyohoga Falls, OH is in the hospital after one of his many homemade pipe bombs blew up on him.
Police said no charges have been filed against Mark Campano, 56. Police found 30 completed pipe bombs in his apartment along with components to make more, plus 17 guns and hundreds of rounds of ammunition. ... "He was always trying to get me and another neighbor to listen to anti-government tapes and watch anti-government videos," said [Barbara] Vachon [his next door neighbor at the Center Park Place Apartments]. "I would never watch them. He was some kind of radical, and he didn't believe in the government."
Let's see how hysterical FOX gets over this since Campano is not a muslim or an Arab but just a white guy who hates the government.
Okay, if you find a hug so arousing that you have to develop a new method for sharing comfort and affection (the Christian Side Hug), then it's probably time for you to start praying to your god to cure you of the mental and emotional malady that obviously afflicts you.
The following rap about Christian Side Hugs (or CSHs as those cool, in-the-know Xtian kids like to call 'em) sadly doesn't appear to be a parody. It was performed at the Christian youth training camp... er - Encounter Generation Conference.
Ordinarily, I'd ridicule the "rap" but here the message is equally as ridiculous as the music. I really hope this is a parody.
This one was found to be too disturbing for publication. Happy Thanksgiving!
