When I owned a self storage facility:

"MAIDEN, N.C. - A man who bought a smoker Tuesday at an auction of abandoned items might have thought twice had he looked inside first.

Maiden police said the man opened up the smoker and saw what he thought was a piece of driftwood wrapped in paper. When he unwrapped it, he found a human leg, cut off 2 to 3 inches above the knee.

The smoker had been sold at an auction of items left behind at a storage facility, so investigators contacted the mother and son who had rented the space where the smoker was found.

The mother, Peg Steele, explained her son had his leg amputated after a plane crash and kept the leg following the surgery “for religious reasons†she doesn’t know much about.

“The rest of the family was very much against it,†Steele said.

Steele said her son, John Wood, plans to drive to Maiden, about 35 miles northwest of Charlotte, to reclaim his amputated leg, police said."

Nice. Very nice.

I laughed pretty hard when I saw that. The question is, was leg smoked or not? Also, if you bought it, would you ever use that smoker again?

After figuring out what you meant by a smoker, the story became more disturbing. Smoked human leg anyone? I would have to throw this thing out.

for all interested parties, here is a recipe for smoked leg. You may have to do some adjustments for weight and meat consistency because this is for venison instead of human. Also, a word of warning- if you plan on smoking your own leg for consumption, please be certain to remove it from your body first, if you are planning on consuming someone elses, removing the leg first is completely optional and is dependent on the size of your smoker.

When I went to bed last night, the world made sense.

Did I wake up in an alternate universe? :confused:

Where am I?

And now you know why I'm a vegetarian.


Hmmmm.....I think the most interesting thing I found was the....er....prostitute, plying her trade in one of the units. I did have one full of batteries when I took over (let that be a lesson about inspections). Then there was the guy who was hauling non-returnable bottles up here from Indiana to turn them in for the 10 cent Michigan refund. Of course, he probably spent more on gas than he got with each run, but it seemed to make sense to him.

Oh, and how could I foget about the deer that got caught in the fenced in area? Kept smashing into the units, into the fence. So I opened everything up, it finally ran out, right into the road, and got hit by a semi-truck.

signs that the class voting you most likely to succeed was inaccurate:

#1. You are working as a hooker at a storage unit.
#2. You are visiting a hooker who is working out of a storage unit.

I hope her customers got a discount. Hooker #1 will take you to a hotel for $75, or you can go with hooker #2 for $10, but you have to do it on the floor of a storage unit.

Too funny, the simpsons could build an episode around that one.

At the coast we had to take the lights out of the units because people would plug adapters in and plug in window unit air conditioners & try to use the storage unit for a week end cabin. No plumbing, no problem bring your camping potty. A friend who had units in Aransas Pass had a parent come in and rent a large unit supposedly for a boat then he gave the keys to his teenager who planned a spring break trip for 20 unescorted teenagers. The cops had to be called to break up the bedlam at the unit. People will do anything>
