Sure, blame the witness for someone elseís stupidity.  That works every time, not.

Like we say here at the office:  Shoot the messenger!

Gee, you simply photograph somebody acting dumb, and one guy says you deserve to be buried in rigatoni and another wants to put a bullet in you.  I guess that's the sort of thing we've come to expect in the Trump Era. 

Regardless, hope everyone has a great Christmas and New Year's, even the pasta hurler and the rifleman.

"Lash with a wet noodle (or in this case, rigatoni)" and "shoot the messenger" are just figures of speech.  A certain degree of irony is implied by their use.

Who wants to put a bullet  in anyone?  I didnít see that one. 

The only thing we expect in the Trump era is no new wars, more money in our pockets, thriving economy, and to bury all the government officials behind the very costly tax payer funded witch hunt which has no credible proof of anything.  The left is batting .000 against him.

The same irony was in my comments, which were taken too seriously.  They weren't intended that way.

"Buried in rigatoni"?  ???  Who said anything about such a quantity of pasta?  :o  I guess I pictured 2 or 3 guys standing on the corner flicking a couple of pieces at the miscreant... :D then chuckling nervously, glad the fellow made it without being divided into multiple sections.     Besides, maybe I meant to throw it at the eye witness!   :P   Or the train engineer?   :-*

This guy just missed getting clipped by a fast-moving Amtrak Charger locomotive.  The Public Works guy was already there, ready for cleanup with his shovel...

It was sarcasm, that's why I started the post with "I can't resist".....
