While MonkuWino suffers writer’s block trying to dream up chapter 7 of his depressing blogella, The Case, we take this opportunity to bring you breaking news from the Downtown area:
We have now received confirmation from reliable sources that the figure in the car currently being chased by police in the Downtown area is indeed the notorious fugitive and pervert, Budo Kun.
Budo Kun, who managed to escape from police custody the other day, was spotted driving down the street by an alert civilian who promptly called 911. Here is the transcript of the call:
911: Please listen carefully as the options may have changed. If you wish to continue in English, please press “1” now. Se hablas espanol, marque numero dos ahora. If this is an emergency stay on the line and someone will be with you in a moment. All calls are answered in the order received so please stay on the line. Your call is very important to us. In order to improve customer service this call may be monitored. While you are wai - *beep* Hello, 911. How may I direct your call?
Informant: Uh, I think I saw that dude or whatever it is driving down my street.
911: I beg your pardon?
Informant: You know, that weird looking dude that escaped from the police yesterday. Buddahead or something like that.
911: You mean Budo Kun?
Informant: Yeah, yeah, I think that was him. Or it. Or shehe or whatever.
911: Are you sure?
Informant: I think so. Well, like how many people look like this dude, huh?
911: Whereabouts did you spot Budo Kun? And how long ago?
Informant: Just now, man. Like about two minutes ago. He was driving down Wilshire waving to everyone. He waved at me and I got the creeps. He was looking at me like I was a kangaroo or something so I got myself out of there fast.
911: Thank you, we’ve dispatched all units in the area.
Informant: Take him down, man!
Thanks to this alert citizen and the efficient efforts of the 911 dispatcher, a total of 47 police cruisers were put on the tail of Budo Kun.
Cruising at speeds of up to 25 miles per hour, Budo Kun has now led police on a chase for approximately one hour through the streets of downtown. Because of injuries to innocent bystanders during other recent car chases, the police have been reluctant to use deterrents such as spike strips, ramming the car, or machine guns.
As we view the latest scenes from the chase, it appears that the cute little fugitive from Domaine547 has gained quite a following among the street crowd. People have been lining the sidewalks, raising their right fists and encouraging him to “put it to the man” and other anti-establishment chants.
At one point a police cruiser pulled alongside little Budo Kun and the officer pointed a gun at him.
Budo Kun shouted at the officer. “You can’t win, copper! If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine!”
And with that the officer backed off. Stay tuned as we continue our live coverage of this chase involving the dangerous fugitive Budo Kun.
