Sometimes my nephew can't go to sleep at night because he is afraid that there is a nigger hiding underneath the matress.

Tyrone wuz kangz n sheeeit ... in other news .... Anne Marie Morris describes Britboingstan leaving EU without deal as 'real nigger in the woodpile' http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/tory-brexiteer-uk-leaving-eu-without-deal-n-word-in-the-woodpile-anne-marie-morris-newton-abbott-a7833786.html what manner of fuckery is this? ... A nigger in the woodpile or fence is a figure of speech originating in the United States meaning "some fact of considerable importance that is not disclosed—something suspicious or wrong" An American film comedy titled A Nigger in the Woodpile was released in 1904, and the idiom was common in literature and film during the 1920s and 30s. Examples include the original 1927 version of the Hardy Boys book The House on the Cliff (pg. 77), where Frank Hardy uses the expression (removed when the story was revised in 1959), and the old-time band Skillet Lickers recording a song called "Nigger in the Woodpile" in 1930.

Dr. Seuss used the term in a 1929 cartoon "Cross-Section of The World's Most Prosperous Department Store", wherein customers browse through a department store looking for items to make their lives more difficult. The panels show a series of scenarios based on popular figures of speech: a man with a net trying to catch a fly for his ointment, another looking at monkey wrenches to throw into his machinery, one examining haystacks with matching needles, and finally a man looking at a selection of "niggers" for his woodpile.

The author Zane Grey's 1921 novel The Mysterious Rider uses the expression at least twice throughout the story to explain a situation in which facts were purposefully omitted.

A visual gag in the Looney Tunes cartoon "Porky's Railroad" from 1937 refers to the phrase.

The phrase is also used in The Razor's Edge by Somerset Maugham. One of the American characters, on the brink of closing a business deal, says to the narrator, "I'll fly down to Texas to give the outfit the once-over, and you bet I'll keep my eyes peeled for a nigger in the woodpile before I cough up any ... dough."

In July 2008, the leader of the British Conservative Party, David Cameron, was urged to sack Conservative peer Lord Dixon-Smith, who said in the House of Lords that concerns about government housing legislation were "the nigger in the woodpile". Dixon-Smith said the phrase had "slipped out without my thinking", and that "It was common parlance when I was younger"

I cannot believe none of those officers checked their left pie slice. If that man was armed at least one of that team would be DOA.

PSA: If you guys haven't checked out the show "Live PD" yet, get on it. The show summary should read: About 5 hours per week of riding along with cops as they arrest blacks for a variety of offenses. It should be required viewing for all liberals who support BLM.

[–] arniecuntingham 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

they would just say "seeeee? the police ARE racist! they only arrest blacks!!!"

[–] TruthSemen 0 points 6 points (+6|-0) ago 

And there's TONS of that on display in the show. I can't even count the number of times blacks go apeshit and start getting uppity with the (often black) cops. And they invariably end up looking like complete douchebags -- on national TV. The show really does a great job at exposing BLM for the total sham it is, and how breathtakingly stupid and self-serving blacks are.

Everyone in America should be watching Live PD, particularly as it seems that white liberals don't fully comprehend the kind of national crisis that black criminality and violence has created.

And the incredible cost to the taxpayer is on display as well -- police and EMS are an expensive babysitters for fatherless blacks. $56,800: the average cost of a single gunshot victim.

Anyone have any links to times people have hid from cops and got away with it? Or outran them either on foot or vehicle?

[–] NeoGoat 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago  (edited ago)

I recall hearing a story about a guy who hid in an attic and the cop did not shine the flashlight around thoroughly enough. Many enjoy the game. I recall listening to one guy talking about a shootout with cops, where he had killed a cop or 2; he said he was playing "cops and robbers".
