A word of advice

If you're a victim of, or witness to, a violent crime, and you're being interviewed by an Assistant State's Attorney, here's a thought:

Try to minimize the number of times you work the phrase "woo woo woo" into your official statement. Excessive use of "woo woo woo" might hurt your credibility, and ultimately result in the gang member who stabbed your baby daddy not getting charged with the felony. I'm just saying.

You know what's a nice way to unwind after the stabbing case you've poured hours of overtime into goes south? Reading about the best ways to find good food on a Mardi Gras parade route, that's what.

And thinking about crawfish pies. And andouille sausage corn dogs.

Monday can't come soon enough.

Someone stabbed my baby daddy? I hope you catch that bastard pretty quick like.

Have a good time! Woo woo woo!

I am rather proud of the fact that I have never worked the phrase woo woo woo into anything.

I guess my complaints about my work will never quite stack up to yours. Dangling participles aren't nearly the big headache that stabbing cases are.

Mmmmm...andouille sausage corn dogs!

What elizabeth said. You're making it real hard to bitch about a job where there aren't criminal assaults.

Though once an irate patron did throw some change at me.

I'm pretty sure that woo woo woo is allowed at Mardi Gras, though, so feel free to let er rip!

You even tagged this post with the woo woo woo! How many other posts have that tag? I gotta go look now!

For want of a dictionary, a conviction was lost. Don't worry, I hear muffalettas are a great remedy for frustration.

Ah the woo woo defence, or offence, or screwup

Shit! My heart goes out to you. Total suck.

Last time I heard that expression it was about men vs women and how meticulous women are but men run out of the shower, throw their wet towel on the bed, walk naked across the room and shout, "woo woo woo".

I don't even know how to spell wo wooo wu.

The Top Cheftestants were in New Orleans this week with Emeril and his massive head, there were knives there, have you questioned him?

"Excessive use of "woo woo woo" might hurt your credibility"

Obviously they had this song on their mind, woo, woo!

It's pretty amazing how people can have a complete lack of awareness of their own idiocy.

One day I was at the Jewel's near my home checking out my groceries, and a neighborhood white trash girl was filling out a job application. At the same time, she was on her cell phone complaining loudly to a friend about her white trash boyfriend hitting her. All this was in front of the manager who would be the one to make the decision whether to hire her or not.

Other than being a) at a strip club or b) Arsenio Hall, is there really any excuse for woo woo woo?
