Bobby Capps Strikes Again

The Free Tommy Chong movement is stronger than ever in California. Actor Bobby Capps has struck again. This time he wrote "Free Tommy Chong" using lime at a burnt out spot along Route 80. He had been planning it for weeks, but the rainy weather caused numerous postponements.
This mission was conducted under the dark of night. After his accomplice dropped him off, he proceeded to walk 1/4 mile up a muddy hill to access the ideal location. It required over forty trips up and down that steep embankment to make it absolutely perfect.
When asked what he learned from the experience, Bobby Capps said it best, "dont eat a big potroast dinner with all the gravy and taters before the just might end up hurling your dinner over the side of the freeway."
Brilliant words from a brilliant man!
Email us if you're interested in contacting or hiring actor Bobby Capps.
While you're at it, check out this hysterical flash animation of Ashcroft arresting Chong. It was created by Bad Dog Graphics.

Chong Supporter Risks Life

This morning, aspiring actor/Chong supporter, Bobby Capps, risked life and limb when he hung a Free Tommy Chong banner from California's Foresthill Bridge. The banner, which we mentioned on the Allan Handelman show earlier this week, measured 80 X 6 feet.
According to Capps, "With Cars going by it was very hard to do it without getting caught." In fact, he almost did get caught. Two police officers asked Capp's wife (who was standing on the bridge) what she was doing there. She told the officers that she was just taking photos of the landscape. They believed her and left. If they had looked over the edge, they would have seen that her husband had climbed down the side of the bridge and was hanging the sign.

All the while, they are being chased by law enforcement officials, who want to bust them, and the pharmaceutical companies that want the recipe.
