From the Huffington Post: A fifteen year old boy was arrested in Port Moody, British Colombia for fighting a mailbox while under the influence of LSD.
“Police saw this fifteen year old kid literally talking to this mailbox and full-on fighting it.” said a police spokeswoman.
Officials say the boy was under the influence of LSD, and when officers attempted to take him into custody, he began to turn his aggression towards them.
Ultimately the boy was released with no charges “he was just a kid who made some bad choices.”
We are all fans of ESPN’s Pardon the Interruption and are familiar with Tony Kornhesier and Michael Wilbon’s talking mailbox. This article does not surprise me at all. Talking mailboxes are scary as all hell. When a mailbox is talking shit, it needs to be dealt with, and the only form of justice a talking mailbox understands is a punishing right hand.
We here at sportsmasher.com graduated from college, and while in college, we may or may not have been on a “psychological journey” or two. If I was tripping and saw a talking mailbox, I would instantly engage the mailbox in fisticuffs, it would be a fight or flight situation. If that mailbox was talking shit, this kid clearly did the right thing, and the talking mailbox got what was coming to it.
If I saw the above mailbox on the street while I was walking home from work today, I would seriously attack it, dead sober. That thing looks like something Ridley Scott dreamed up while writing “Alien”. I think if this kid walked past that mailbox while he was tripping on acid he would have literally shit his pants.
