Scanner Reports 4-9-14
updated: Apr 09, 2014, 7:00 AM

By Roger the Scanner Guy

Wednesday Happy Humpster Day! OMD, Little Cesar's outdid themselves 10 times over on this nice greasy pepperoni pizza. Best I've ever had from them! Yummy Yum,Yum! How could I ever go anywhere else for Pizza when they are putting them out that good? About a week or so ago was watching KCAL News this had this story on about some idiot stealing gasoline from 3 Brothers who owned this Gas Station in Los Angeles but the 3 Brothers were from Chicago. It was a pretty funny story. One of the Brothers ran after the thief who was driving a white pickup truck with some kind of tank in the back which was filled with the stolen gas. The Brother fell down and rolled a little yelling at the guy as the jerk was making his escape. The thief lost control of the truck and hit a light post head on. The Brothers ran up to the truck opened the door and dragged the kicking and screaming man a few feet and kicked the scrap out of him. The police pulled up soon after. It cracked me up watching that news story. The News Lady said something about this being the wrong gas station to rob because it was owned by 3 Brothers from Chicago. Reminded me of when I was a kid and people would ask me where I was from I'd stick out my chest and growl in the roughest voice I could "CHICAGO, I'M FROM CHICAGO." No one knew where the HELL Hammond, Indiana was.

When I told people I was from Chicago they would get a little shook up and not mess with me because they thought the guy from Chicago was going to kick their ars. After all everyone knows people from Chicago are tough just like people from Detroit, Philly, NY City, New Jersey and Boston. There are other places that sound intimidating but I wasn't afraid of guys that would tell me they were from Toledo, Fort Wayne, or Berwyn. No, Chicago had a lot more clout. Until the time I met Barney told him I was from Chicago and he asked me "What street?" Barney he's really from Chicago the city not just the Burbs like me. I felt about 2 inches tall switching my birthplace to Hammond, Indiana. Hammond's a little different today more people know where Hammond, Indiana is today compared to the old days. Funny thing I'm proud to tell people where I'm from today even if they don't know. Sometimes smaller is better. I really enjoyed that story of the 3 Brothers from Chicago that owned the gas station in Los Angeles did anyone else see it? It was like something out of a movie only there were no takes it was real and happening right then.

Here's Thy Blessed Scanner Roni Reports, Monday:
