Arrrguably Still High

A man walked into a market in Plains Township, Pa., and an employee noticed he was carrying a pair of scissors in each hand, so the employee followed him to see what was going on. The man with the scissors then turned and stabbed the employee, witnesses say. Joseph Pradel told police he was a pirate who came to America in 1776 on the Santa Maria (which sank on Christmas in 1492, on Columbus’s return voyage). After being taken before a magistrate to face charges, including drug use, a reporter asked Pradel, “Do you regret what you did?” Pradel shot back, “Nah!” (RC/WNEP Scranton) ...Hey, if he doesn’t regret sinking his ship, he’s hardly going to worry about a little scissoring.
