Default Mr. X you are a lunatic not a comic

Do not be like Mr.X

Mr.X attended our university studying postgraduate computers.
Mr.X had an invitation to study for a PhD in Canada.
Mr.X may be clever academically, but has a level of brain function below the amoeba.

You see Mr.X wanted to entertain the campus with a comically hilarious jape. His choice of prank was to find a rather convincing replica gun, wander into the Great Hall and announce that he had chosen his targets and if his presentation went badly he would shoot them.

Mr.X's fellow students did not appreciate the finer qualities of his humour
Neither did the armed police who were called to remove him from the campus.
Neither did the judge who rejected his defence that 'it was a prank and no-one would actually take it seriously'.
Neither did the universities here and in Canada who have declined to welcome him as a student.

Perhaps his fellow residents at Her Majesty's Pleasure for the next eight months might be a more appreciative audience.

Or perhaps his tastes may be more international-when he will be deported back to China where his father-a prominent judge- will I'm sure be eager to debate the finer points of his comedy performance.

*Fortunately Kitty had just missed the bus to the university otherwise he would be walking across the Great Hall at just that time to get his lunchtime coffee and nibbles...

So, I take it you and Mr.X are currently in England? Is it possible that he will be referred to the mental-health facility where he likely belongs?

Why? He's not mentally ill, he's just a moron.

Oh, this post brings back a memory I'd tried so hard to forget forever. I was an enlisted man at my first duty station.

While out in town for a weekend, I ran into a fellow enlistee from my unit. We spent a few hours doing various things and then decided that we'd had enough for one evening and made our way back to the base.

UNBEKNOWNST TO ME, my friend was packin' a pistol under his civvy jacket. Not a real one, but a highly detailed, METAL non-functional model of a German Luger. when we reached the main gate, and he reached into his inner coat pocket to retrieve his ID, his coat opened up enough for the two ARMED GUARDS to see the 'pistol' tucked into his pants. To date, I've had guns deliberately pointed at me exactly three times in my life, but this was the first, and the guys holding them were deadly f***ing serious about it. I have little doubt that if I'd had even twitched at that moment, yours truly would not be here to regale you with the tale.

We spent the next 10-15 minutes or so face-down on the cold, VERY WET ground. That was just until the MPs showed up to escort us to a holding cell for a couple of hours, before we were finally returned to our unit. IN HANDCUFFS, and most definitely on report.

Everyone in our chain of command was monumentally pissed, from the CO on down. My friend, thankfully, confirmed that I'd not been aware of his colossal lack of judgement, but that did little to distance me from the fiasco, and I still had ten days of restriction with a side order of extra duties.

The other two times I've had guns pointed at me? Well, let's just say one was an example of the hazards of working in a convenience store on third shift. And the other.... that's a much longer story.

What the everloving hell???

JFC, has Mr. X been living in a cave for the last 20 years? How could he not have known what the response to his (alleged) joke would be?

Seems like Ron White was right - "You can't fix stupid."

That reminds me of the branch manager who received a call in an airport from a worker at her bank. She ask if she looked at the Branch Operations Manual. "Check the BOM!"

She had a nice conversation with the TSA and airport security.
This site proves Corey Taylor right. Man really is a "four letter word."

Mr X. has been living in China for the previous 20 years. The Chinese police are not exactly noted for dealing with people who wander around public places waving a weapon as a joke by patting them on the back, telling them they were very entertaining and giving them a friendly lift back home to come and share a beer...

To quote Hermione, "WHAT ... AN ... IDIOT ..."

If that wouldn't go over well back in China, what in HELL made him think it would go over well elsewhere??

You also need to be careful when you say "hi" to Jack.
