    Well, if it is Pawlenty, I think we all know why he dropped out so quickly.

    “I’m gonna be drunk and naked whenever,
    Whenever I feel like, 
    Whenever, whenever,
    whenever, forever,

    Silly Randy, stay home if you’re going to get yer drank on…and for pete’s sake keep yer clothes on!

     Apparently he still likes to get drunk and get loud; one of Hank’s rowdy friends that hasn’t settled down.

    Off topic but OMG, OMG, OMG…

    I am on FMJRA today?  

    I thought I was completely and utter-ly dissed.  Now today is like Christmas, New Years, and the Fourth of July all rolled into one.  

    Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!

    In my enthusiasm over getting FMJRA  have to resist getting drunk and wandering around neck-ed–although being a cow the naked part is no big deal.  

    TMZ noted that Randy was not entirely naked.  He was wearing a Longhorns hat.

    Hank probably would have told him the same thing. “Dadgum Randy! Put yer clothes on dude!” lol

    All I can say is he’s lucky he was not wearing a Sooners hat!

    I don’t think the hat really mattered. No points were scored either way. I’m guessing it was a game of rock-paper-scissors between the cops as to who got to cuff him.

    You mean the loser has to go approach Naked Randy?

    @TheEBL:disqus Or the “winner” if one was into that sort of thing.

     Maybe Randy believes that “anywhere you hang your hat is home.”

    Keep in mind the FMJRA on the main page (chosen by Stacy) is not the same as the weekly FMJRA post, which has been delegated to Yr. Obdt. Servant. I will be happy to continue meeting your minimum weekly requirement for disdain and rules lawyering. 😉

    I think they teach how to “sidle” in the police academies, right?

    I mean, you don’t “walk” or even “mosey” up to arrest a drunk, naked man.  It has to be sidling.

    Totally! LOL! Dont forget Hank’s signature exclamation, “BAH!” I’m sure there’s a ‘dammit Randy” in there somewhere…

    I think any cop whose ever participated in 4-H would know that move.
