Quote# 16616

A man waving a brick barged into Monroe Middle School and ranted about the teachings of evolution before being arrested by police Tuesday morning.

Monroe police reported the man walked into the school office and immediately headed down a hallway toward the principals' offices. When stopped by employees, he began yelling at them asking if he looked like a monkey.

They then noticed Mr. Wood was holding a brick. A teacher, an assistant principal and a secretary tried calming the man down, but he continued his rant about teaching evolution in schools and asked if the employees thought he looked like an ape.

"He had a brick in his hand and started shaking it in the air," Mr. McLeod said. "The police were called immediately."

That's one disturbed individual.

Oh, man, all I can think of now is that immortal line:

\"Brick, where did you get a hand grenade?\"

Yeah, that'll sure show 'em that your point of view is correct. I should try doing something like that at my local church, then all religion in the world would probably collapse.

I'd say just about any ape would be smarter than Mr. Mark A. Wood.

I totally just imagined an ape angrily waving a brick.

Mental image set in and I liked it. If this isn't proof that some people need the crutch of religion, than I do not know what is.

I would say yes... an enraged ape brandishing a stone at other animals and screaming.

While I doubt he resembles a monkey, but default he has to look like an ape, unless he's trying to suggest he doesn't look human.

Sounds like this guy could have been a silverback stand-in for a National Geographic Special, only less rational.

If this guy has any children at that school (or anywhere, for that matter), I feel truly sorry for them.

Oh man... this SO reminds me of that Simpson's episode with Ned Flanders on the stand, and Homer attempting to bash open a beer bottle and screaming at it...

When stopped by employees, he began yelling at them asking if he looked like a monkey.

No, but you are certainly acting like one.

\"Actually Mr. Wood, you do indeed resemble an ape, waving a brick in the air, shouting nonsense. Very ape like.\"

The jokes write themselves

Replace \"brick\" with \"feces\"....

The ultimate response of the ones who have not the right and logic on their side. VIOLENCE.

Brilliant MK. In this case, the feces were coming out of his mouth, not his hand.

It actually reminded me of a different Simpsons' episode... the one where they are at the miniature golf course, and Homer is waving his arms around in a fashion similar to the giant fake ape obstacle.

This is what we get when xtians get ahold of vunerable people and warp their minds with their twisted version of reality. But I'm guessing here, the article didn't mention the man's reason for being upset over evolution and apes.

This definitely deserves some kind of award. Perhaps something along the lines of \"Shot Self in Foot Award\" might work.

11/1/2006 10:20:04 PM

Why yes, you do look like a monkey. A rabid monkey.


\"\"Shot Self in Foot Award\" seconded

I like the award concept, but I think the name could use a little punching up. How about \"Expert Foot Marksman Medal\"?

I love a well reasoned argument.

Oh my god. That is hiliarious!- As well as a big put down about the human race...

Yes, \"Expert Foot Marksman Medal\" sounds excellent.

He probably DID look like an ape. Oh, the insecurity...
