Next time there's a string cheese bomb, call me.Posted Wednesday, July 23, 2008, at 5:41 PM
It took police, with the aid of bomb dogs, two hours to figure out the device was really string cheese.
Centerville, despite it's clever-sounding name, isn't really located in the center of Utah. It's located four hours south of here somewhere around Salt Lake City.
If this problem ever occurs again, I encourage law enforcement officers there to give me a call.
I can solve the problem.
I love cheese. All types of cheese, including string cheese. There is almost always string cheese in my fridge. I love it, I can eat it anytime of the day. I even like to eat it before I grab a beer and jump in the shower after a good run. It's great stuff.
So next time there's a suspicious package of cheese laying around, they should just give me a call, I'll come down and eat the problem away (but not with ranch. Yes, you really can find just about anything on YouTube).
I'm not trying to be a hero or anything, I just want to do my part to help make the world a better place.
Oh, and did you know you can listen to string cheese?
Or, ever wonder how it gets to be stringed?
And, string cheese bombs aren't funny. It cost tax payers and store owners a few thousand dollars because some kids thought they might be. Remember kids, making fake bombs, not cool. Stealing stuff from Wal-Mart? Still not cool, but probably a little bit better than fake bomb alerts. Know where a cool place to spend the summer is? No, not this city, but the library. They have free books there, and they let you steal them, as long as you bring them back by a certain time.

The idea behind Robert's Random is for me to write about whatever I'm thinking about whenever I'm thinking it. I try to write 3-5 times a week, but sometimes real work gets in the way of that. Sometimes I'll share whatever random thought I might have that day but most of the time, I like to write about things going on in the news. I'm a total news junkie, I spend a lot of time online at various news sites. If I find a story where someone does something totally stupid or I wonder "what were they thinking?" I don't mind pointing it out incase others missed it or taking my best guess at what they were thinking. I like to laugh, I like to make others laugh. There's so much serious and wrong stuff going on in the news that when I find an unusual or light story, I like to use it. And while real life news events might be the focus of many of my blogs, I'm just trying to entertain you, make you laugh and maybe even think about something you didn't know before reading. I'm not trying to break any serious news or deliver any hard-hitting coverage. You'll have to read a paper or watch one of the network shows for that.
