Stimbert: Please use Shout it Out
Hear the one about a man who walks into a bar . . .

Well, an apparently intoxicated man with snot on his sweatshirt walks into a bar . . .

This isn't a joke:

An apparently intoxicated, masked man with snot on his sweatshirt and holding a revolver walked into a Costa Mesa bar early this morning and demanded cash.

That's the story police are telling today about Ryan Matthew Stimbert, a 37-year-old Irvine resident who forgot to take the cash from the Avalon Bar before leaving, according to a Costa Mesa Police Department press statement.

Police say they captured Stimbert after he allegedly fired his weapon at an occupied building.

It really wasn't a stellar evening for Stimbert. He probably felt unloved. He'd been asked to leave another bar in the area earlier in the night, according to a police investigation.

Sheriff's officials say Stimbert is currently being processed in the Orange County Jail.

His criminal history includes multiple arrests for illegal drug and weapon possession charges, according to court records.

Take it easy everyone. Maybe figure out why he is so upset. You all need to get your own lives and be a little less pathetic.

Didn't the Yamamano of the Amazon have some psychotropic drug that makes strings of snot run down and out your nostrils? Maybe the guy was on that. That's one class of drugs whites really do more than other groups -- hallucinogens. There's a great Richard Pryor bit -- way old -- about him on acid. Starts out, 'I took acid once...white dude gave me some'.

wow. i am so relieved they caught this armed psychopath. i was there. i saw the hate in his eyes and the snot on his shirt. i am still shaking. my life literally flashed before my eyes. funny, i had just gotten into a fight with my mom earlier in the night and the only thing i could think of is, "i need to get home to my mom and pug to tell them how much i love them." its crazy how sometimes it takes a catastrophic event like this for you to realize what's really important in life.

Finally a white guy. And not the ordinary white perv either, but an violent armed felon.

 Yup, its called yopo by some tribes and the main ingredient is ayahuasca; a jungle vine that has tryptamine compounds in it.  Indigenias use it as ritual and also to hunt as it increases visual accuity and focuses concentration.  Not sure how you do that while your nose is dripping snot all over your bow and arrow but what the hay, I'm a gabacho, its not my thang
