Naked Halo: Coming to a Hotel Near You

To all the proud guys who read this blog: You only thought you had accomplished something in life. Well, it now appears that you and I have been one-upped.

By a 13-year-old kid.

Ralph Hardy, a 13 year old from Newark, Texas confessed to ordering an extra credit card from his father's existing credit card company, and took his friends on a $30,000 spending spree, culminating in playing "Halo" on an Xbox with a couple of hookers in a Texas motel.

Yeah, that's right. Wipe the coffee off your computer screen and keep reading. I couldn't make this stuff up.

Asked why he ordered two escorts, Ralph said he thought it was the thing to do when you win a "World of Warcraft" tournament. They told the suspicious working girls they were people of restricted growth working with a traveling circus, and as State law does not allow those with disabilities to be discriminated against they had no right to refuse them.

Kid was playing Halo in a hotel room with a couple of $1k/night ladies.

It occurs to me that maybe — just maybe — one of the sorrier points of getting old is that you lose your imagination.

The $1,000 a night girls, sensing something up, played "Halo" on the Xbox with the kids, instead of selling their sexual services.

Ralph's ambition is to one day become a politician.

On the other hand, one of the finer points of getting old is that you understand when there are chunks of your imagination which are best recounted only on a future episode of Dr. Phil.

By someone else.

Well said.


I love it! :)


OMG! Well, given the track records of some politicians out there, between the stealing money and the hookers, I'd guess he's already off to a good start... *snicker*


Umm, guys, did you miss the red-colored sentence at the top?

"NB: This story is a parody and is not intended to be taken seriously."



When this story first appeared, that red message wasn't there.

It's only been added at some point between then and now.
