    Randy, saw this video earlier, had no idea of the story behind it. Much funnier when you know the Paul Harvey 🙂

    Oh, and the payoff is at the end. You always have handcuffs laying around? 🙂

    Actually, I do have a pair from my sheriff’s deputy days — but I couldn’t find them! I borrowed that pair from a friend. The amazing part: I had bowling pins! 🙂 -rc

    I especially liked the re-creation.

    What is the awesome building you were standing in when you videotaped the comments?

    I wasn’t in there when I taped, but I did take the photo. It’s noted in the credits: it’s the U.S. Library of Congress. -rc

    I am thinking the bowling pins imply too much intellect. Maybe some rocks…
    Great reenactment!

    I’ve seen similar video from Canada on one of the reality cop shows, except that one involved THREE rocket scientists cuffed together–with the same result.

    I certainly wasn’t expecting the bowling pins bit, but that was funny and quirky – two things I can always count on from This is True! 😛

    I guess they should have tried the seven-ten split. There again maybe the court will do that for them 🙂

    I laughed so hard, My back went out! Happily though, it came right back. Great work Randy, I really appreciate the “Don’t Try This At Home” warning, that kills! Or to quote Bugs Bunny, “What a maroon!”

    I have seen this before but each time it just seem to be more funny then the last time.
