The K-man's finest hour(s)

Really, I could think of about 10 synonyms for “smashing” there off the top of my head

I remember this photo from long ago. I couldn’t find the original clipping, but the caption began “Dan Quayle, left, holds a pumpkin…”


#1388

I could think of some great synonyms for K-Man but I’ll be banned for two weeks…


#1389

It’s time to put the word “netizen” to bed.


#1390

“Enraged Netizen Demands End to Usage of Word Netizen”


#1391

Definitely needs a jettison. And possibly a betizen too.


#1392

OK, I need some help here: “it was not until police came out with their own pot of fried peppers that the crowd finally started to disperse” Why did the popo bring their own pot of peppers?


#1393

Could it be it a reference to pepper spray? Very strange.

EDIT: I didn’t read to the end of the article. The police literally did bring a plate of hot peppers. WTF is that all about?

He needs to spell “scene” correctly.


#1394

If the police brought a pot of hot peppers, I’ll eat them.

Oh there’s a picture lol. This is next-level policing, I’m shocked.


#1395

It was effective policing. The crowd dispersed.


#1396

This was the weirdest news I’ve read yet.
Good that the family are now going to get some protection.

The police in Taiwan can be quite flexible and that’s oftej to their credit . Instead of water cannon and pepper spray a pot of chili pepper calmed folks down.


#1397

Can @Icon shed some light on why the police turned up to the pot luck party with their own dish?


#1398

I’m just guessing here… but maybe cooking chili peppers has a similar but lighter effect to pepper spray?


#1399

Alternative explanation: they cook terrible.

Alternative explanation 2: they cook awesome and people started to feel hungry and went for the closest noodle soup shop.

From the CNA part, I think it might be some kind of colloquial expression or yeah, they sprayed the crowd away. Will check otehr sources/ask a local.

面對大批群眾,警方在晚間11時出面希望群眾解散,但反而引起群眾鼓譟,警方隨後代表接下那一鍋炒辣椒,更向現場群眾表明「看了新聞也生氣」,但此事需要秉公處理,強調不會把炒辣椒丟掉,希望給警方機會處理。

CNA writes weird stuff and as our main source, we also write weird stuff.


#1401

there’s a picture of the pot.


#1402

Nah, it says they received the pot on behalf of the offender 警方隨後代表接下那一鍋炒辣椒 in the hope this would persuade the crowd to leave. Looks like someone misread the image.


#1403

Absolutely bizarre. But, it worked.


#1404

Even Apple Daily is missing that juicy bit.

Most papers left the story after the 7 gusy were aprehended.

據了解,網友肉搜這名狠父就住在蘆洲一處社區大樓,今天晚間多名民眾聚集在他住家外準備給他教訓。其中有7名男子衝進社區內,直接至林男家按電鈴,林男不察開門後,2名男子衝入他家,拿著準備好的辣椒要林男當場吃,林男拒絕後就遭2人毆打。

China Times says they trie dto feed the hot peppers to the perv.

Anyways, it was a mess, many people hurt.

The weird thing is domestic abuse goes on every single night in Taiwan in every single town. This place is a domestic abusers paradise. How come shit got real in this one case?
