DNC Protestors Afraid To Poop

Activists set to protest at the Democratic National Convention in Denver in August are running scared. There is word of a crowd control device that has been nicknamed a "crap cannon," to be used against them.

Also called “Brown Note,” it is believed to be an infrasound frequency that debilitates a person by making them defecate involuntarily…

Dr. Roger Schwenke - an expert acoustician who appeared on the Discovery Channel’s “Mythbusters” in 2004 to test the phenomenon - told FOXNews.com there is no scientific evidence that proves such frequencies cause involuntary defecation…

But Schwenke acknowledged the low-frequency exposure did cause an adverse effect [in an experiment]. Several people — including himself — reported “abdominal discomfort,” he said, “which was easily alleviated by moving a moderate distance away from the source.”

Now, if they're serious, they'll lock up all the port-a-pottys at the same time...

Why is this an issue?



I'd be the last person to consider Barack Obama a black conservative. But all the whoopla over his bumping fists with his wife Tuesday night after clinching the Democratic nomination is beyond me.

That's just something that we do.

I do it with my wife; I do it with my friends. Hell, I thought it had entered the mainstream -- after all, contestants on "Deal Or No Deal" do it with host Howie Mandel.

But to hear and see all of the commentary today, you'd think he'd done something revolutionary or crazy.

I kind of thought there were some legitimate issues to talk about -- gas is still at $4 a gallon. The border still leaks like a sieve. The mortgage mess still has millions worried about the value of their homes. The Iraqis still won't step up and take control of their own country. Mahmoud "Leisure Suit Larry" Ahmadinijad still keeps rattling his sabre and threatening to wipe Israel off the map. Oh, and Osama "7-11 Clerk" Bin Laden is still hiding in the hills of Afghanistan/Pakistan (if he's still alive).

If this is what we're going to have to be subjected to from a press that has nothing better to talk about between now and November, it's gonna be a long summer indeed.
