"Puffy and cranky"? I get the cranky part, but does caffeine cure puffiness? I have images of a blow up doll shrinking when caffeine is added.

Glad your home is back.

Hi Gene,

You think too much.

But yes, caffeine depuffs systemically (is a diuretic) and topically. 100% Pure Caffeine Eye Cream, Organic Coffee Bean | drugstore.com

Indeed. Specifically....."I have images of a blow up doll shrinking when caffeine is added."

Good to the last cup?
Jim never asks for a second cup of coffee at home?
Fill it to the rim with Brim?
Good to the last drop?
It only tastes expensive?
Have it your way, if your way is fast?
Your cup of inspiration?
When it's time for Me, it's time for Melitta!
The best part of wakin' up is Folger's in your cup?

- from "52 Catchy Coffee Taglines"

I've seen them on TV which says something for the strange channels I find on the Dish. I've never had any use for them even though they are good at following orders. In the spirit of equal opportunity, they are available in male and female models and if you don't want one to get lonely, you should order one of each. I understand you can get a premium version that is very realistic and I believe costs a couple of thousand dollars. They can make them to resemble your favorite porn star in every way. This is another example of good ole American ingenuity at work. I'm sure there is a thriving export business to Canada where some people need something, anything, to keep warm in the perpetual winter.

Hi, Gene; I didn't know all of that stuff. But I heard a few people tried using them so they can drive in the HOV. [car pool lanes]

Several years back I recall seeing some police cars parked at the side of the road with inflatables dressed in a uniform. Supposedly to deter speeders. Penna. was one state not sure where else I've seen them. They must have leaked cause haven't seen any in a long time. Perhaps they had difficulty explaining them in budget requests.

Hi, on our Alaska trip, I saw this cop car on the side of the road; I guess this town was so poor that their cop car was made out of 3/4" plywood.

Hey Bob. That worked to fool the Germans prior to D-Day. So why not use it to fool the public. Something tells me that the second time you were fooled by it you deserved it.

Totally fake.

No Tim Hortons.

The Boeing plant in Seattle hid their entire facility.

Amazing.

I remember Bob's fake police car and can't remember where it was. Maybe Haines Jct.

Empire, Colorado, used to have a dummy in a police car and I've seen similar things elsewhere. Get a radar detector and you'll know whether it is fake or a cop is sleeping (unless they have an instant-on speed gun).

I've never seen one with a blow up doll, though I'd imagine someone would find a way to take advantage of the fake cop. To some people the uniform would make it more exciting.

Police car has been sitting in the same spot for years just before you enter Boulder City from Las Vegas.
