Yo, I said NO pickles

Marcus, Marcus Marcus. The former Va Tech QB couldn’t make it a week without grabbing the national sports spotlight for all the wrong reasons. Getting booted from a major Division 1 football program wasn’t grandiose enough, so rather than filling out his Rhodes Scholar application, Vick was busy playing Dirty Harry at a Richmond, Virginia McDonalds.

Vick was charged with three misdemeanor counts of brandishing a firearm, and was released on $10,000 bond. He turned himself in to the Suffolk magistrate’s office after warrants were issued for his arrest.

Police indicated that the parents of a 17-year-old boy reported that Vick pointed a gun at their son and two other unidentified persons at a McDonalds in Suffolk. Details surrounding the incident were not clear, but several scenarios seem likely:

- It was revealed that the fact that the Shamrock shake won’t be available in stores for another two months. That’s enough to make anyone irritable.

- Mayor McCheese refused to issue a decree to overrule the Va Tech decision to kick him out of school.

- The kids mistook him for Ronald McMexico, Ronald McDonald’s little brother.

- In a momentary lapse brought on by sugar buildup in the brain, Vick believed he was the Hamburgler

You know as I drove away from the driveup window the other day and realized they didn't give me my hot mustard sauce for the 18th time in a row I had the same reaction as Vick. Only I didn't have a gun. And I didn't point it at teenagers and...well, other than that...exactly the same!

I never thought of the Hamburglar=Marcus Vick connection. Brilliant!
