Strange group of people with weed eaters in the neighborhood…

May 25, 2004, 9:20 PM

Yes, Sis and I encountered a strange group of people across the street from the house today. They were using weed eaters to weed-eat the area around the creek that runs near our house. Still, we were trying to figure out what this group was. Most of the people were wearing blue pants with a red stripe down the leg. These same people also wore bright orange T-shirts, the official don’t-run-me-down color.

Then there was also a person there in a blue work shirt, and a uniformed officer from somewhere. I couldn’t make out the uniform, and I wasn’t going to break out the binoculars.

We figured it was likely that these people were inmates of somewhere, considering the bright orange shirts plus the uniformed officer. But then I thought that the sign of inmates was the that the guy supervising was always very obviously holding a large shotgun. Plus, think of the children! This is a residential neighborhood, and I didn’t think they could use inmates in a residential neighborhood.

Still, it was definitely an odd sight seeing all these people running weed eaters at once.

Quote:
Bart: Oh, how can they imprison kids in school on a beautiful day like this?
Lisa: They're not imprisoning us, Bart, they're --
[a grey bus labeled "Springfield Prison" pulls up]
Bart: [getting on] Prison bus, Otto?
Otto: The regular school bus broke down, so take a seat before I blow your heads off!
Lisa: Otto...!
Otto: Oh, sorry. This bus and I have sort of a "Shining" thing going on.
