Batman Seeks Robin

John Bray of Waipawa, New Zealand, needs a partner. He’s part of a volunteer community patrol organization, but decided to go solo after his previous partner kept falling asleep on duty. While Bray feels his experience with a reconnaissance and raiding unit in the British Army qualifies him to deal with vandals and other miscreants, the national Community Patrol organization has said the 91-year-old can only stay on the roster if he finds a partner. “I’m not getting my hackles up about it,” Bray said, “I know their thinking. I mean, I know 70-year-olds who shouldn’t be driving a wheelbarrow, let alone a car.” While he had a recent fall and surgery, he’s looking forward to finding a new partner once he’s better. Waipawa patrol head John Carter hated to break the news to him. “We love him dearly,” he said, “and we’re desperately trying to find a partner for him.”

A THOUGHT: He hopes for a much younger partner — like 80.

Chase Morgan is just your average, ordinary All-American writer. Chase began writing several years ago, but never published anything until the "Are You Friggen' Kidding Me?" blog launched in August of 2009. Chase simply got tired of standing around and just observing all of the craziness in the world, so this anxious writer sat down and wrote the first "Are YOu Friggen' Kidding Me?" article on August 19th, 2009. Now, any time something makes Chase say, "Are You Friggen' Kidding Me?", the issue get's transformed into an article. Chase is currently single, homeless and living under a bridge in South Florida.
