Got my first billy club the other day. It's just a wooden tire thumper that I'm going to put an umbrella cover over so police officers won't feel threatened when I walk over to assault them. I'm also trying to get it to ricochet off of hard surfaces like Daredevil does, but so far I've only succeeded in breaking a lot of porcelain.

Finally got my fish bat in the mail. It's made out of polypropylene, supposedly the Adamantium of plastic, and is supposed to be used for clubbing tuna and baby seals. I'm going to put it to the test in the pumpkin patch this weekend.

The fish bat hits like a sledge. Those farmers were pissed.
Just a quick question for people who go to comic conventions: Is it alright if I wear a gimp suit and carry a live machete? If not, I'll save that for Halloween. I'll use my rabbit costume as back up:

Can't say I collect anything. I think I have a certain disdain for collections. When I was young I used to save everything and collect all kinds of ****, now I see it as a waste. Collections eat up space, time, and money. None of which I have to spare. I see them as an addiction, you get a new piece and you adore it for a short time then the feeling is gone and it's on to the next one. I see it as consumerism and a bit materialistic.
Now that I sound like a "holier than thou" prick in a thread where everyone is talking about all their **** i'll completely contradict myself. My thoughts on collecting are what they mean to me personally, if I collected a bunch of Barbie memorabilia to me it would be shallow and a waste. If other people want to collect **** fine, I have several friends with some impressive collections that I enjoy looking at, I also see the sacrifices they make to maintain them. I'll also add that not all collections are materialistic, if you build your own **** (knives, models, pottery whatever) I consider that art and that's a little different. The same goes for things you use, I have a bunch of knives, one or two of them are moderately nice but I carry them around. The same goes for escrima sticks, I have a bunch but I use them all in some form. I'm thinking of collections as stuff you buy that sits on a shelf that isn't used.
For some a collection is an investment that can be liquidated when the need arises, so I can see the benefit in that too. But I don't get the collecting of useless ****, that has no value. What do you assholes think of that?

Pigs are tough, you need more than a plastic stick
I figure mammals are probably tougher, though. I'd be satisfied with just lowering their quality of life, as long as they don't fight back too hard. Joe Frazier got his arm broken by a hog when he was a kid. His left arm healed wrong, leaving it permanently cocked for the hook.
Here's Tom Green trying to break a cow skull:
