I've got a few things on my plate this week (mainly old chicken bones), so I'm phoning it in again today, and probably will again tomorrow. Here is another article from Peoria's rag, reminding me why I still read it every morn. Its not "funny," per se, until the last line. Sells the whole damn story.

That city rules.

Pekin woman choked, robbed in Peoria Monday

PEORIA - A Pekin woman was robbed and choked Monday by an acquaintance whom she drove to the West Bluff.

The 21-year-old had visited a friend at Hurlburt House, 818 W. Hurlburt St., and was leaving about 3 p.m. when a man she knows as "BJ" asked her for a ride. She told police she agreed to give him a lift because she had met him before.

She stopped the car in the 1000 block of Flora Avenue to let the man out. He then reached into her purse, which was sitting on the seat between them, and removed an undisclosed amount of money.

She tried to hit the man, but he grabbed her by the neck and choked her, police said. He then ran from the car with her money.

She drove herself to Methodist Medical Center in Peoria for treatment and was released.

The only other bit of information she could tell police about "BJ" was he was wearing a black T-shirt that said, "Give me your money, trick."

Sounds like I wore the wrong shirt to work today.
