Mike Vick and the case of the water bottle residue

I’m just hearing about Mike Vick’s brush with airport security over a magical (catch the double meaning) water bottle that had both a hidden compartment and apparent traces of marijuana residue.

From SI.com:

The bottle was found to have a hidden compartment that contained “a small amount of dark particulate and a pungent aroma closely associated with marijuana,” the report said. The compartment was hidden by the bottle’s label so that it appeared to be a full bottle of water when held upright, police said.

I’m no expert, but a hidden compartment seems like it shows some forethought of action and making that leap it seems like only someone habitually partaking might take that step.

I’m just saying.

Also, who doesn’t know about the security restrictions covering liquids and gels on planes these days? Maybe he was too high to remember.

In any event, even though the Falcons have a new coach it seems like Ron Mexico is up to his old tricks.

Any predictions on how the Vick, the Falcons, Arthur Blank, and the NFL will respond? Also anyone want to venture very early guesses for the Falcons record next year? I’d guess 4-20, which is unpossible, but funny.

    Everyone seems to be jumping on the Vick bashing bandwagon after this incident.

    First of all, this is obviously not Michael Vick’s fault. As he was approaching the security booths, he knew it was a bad plan. Unfortunately, he wasn’t able to able to change the plan. He was traveling with a couple of friends that hindered the success of the plan as well. One friend was to run interference at the gate and prevent MV from incurring any hassle. This friend was unable to provide suitable interference. His second friend was to step up and take the blame incase things went wrong. This second friend dropped the ball for his part in the plan. On realizing that the plan had gone horribly wrong, MV decided to make a run for it but managed to drop his bag a few feet from the TSA agent. As you can see, none of this was Michaels’ fault.

    A friend of mine who created a funny take off of “Snakes on a plane” in honor of MV’s troubles. He sent it to a friend of his that works for Neil Boortz who put it up online. Here’s a link, scroll down and you’ll find the image. I have a larger version as well.

    that’s brilliant, captain obvious. if you can get his name would you send it to me? i am going to post it on my blog and would like to give him some credit…

    James, I’ll ask him if he minds this being cross posted. He does a lot of Graphic Design for Boortz’s crew so I don’t know what he’ll say. I met him through another site called Bimmerforums, he goes by Doctor Wha there. BTW, he has another movie poster take off of “Up in Smoke” that’s even funnier.

    James, Here’s the response I got back from DW.

    “I don’t mind a bit, and “Doctor Wha” is fine. In fact, it’s probably better to have it in quotes, since that denotes it as a nickname.

    And please be sure to tell him I said thanks very much for asking!

    Anyway, tell him to go right ahead, and enjoy.

    Thanks much,
    DW”
