JP's Arrest -- Clarification
Just FYI, from the best of my knowledge...
If you checked the front page recently you would see that JP is being arrested. Worried? Nah. Apparently it is part of a fundraiser. The MDA (Muscular Dystrophy Association) is locking up participating celebrities until 'bail' is donated. It's a sort of fundraiser joke, people. Just to make that clear.
Secondly, Muscular Dystrophy is a genetically based disease which basically causes muscle cells to fail to regenerate. When you excercise, muscle cells die and grow back stronger than before. For people with MD, they don't. The cells that replace the muscle may be fat cells instead. I had a friend a few years ago who was afflicted with MD, and was in a wheelchair constantly.
So, to boil it down:
JP is being mock-arrested as a fundraiser
MD is an icky affliction, money is needed for research (hence the fundraiser)

I bailed Mr. TC out two years in a row now...you'd think I'd learn.

Well Jp gets what he deserves. After all rape of a penguin is wrong.......
In all seriousness though. It is a good cause. I'll donate myself as soon as I can. I dump most of my money into diabettes research since I am a juvinille diabetic myself. So anybody that donates to his/her research charity of choice neads a big pat on the back. Kudo's to all that do.

heh.. I was worried there for a moment. I was about ready to make some calls. But yes it is a very good deed JP is doing got those folks and I'm sure he'll have some good stories to tell when he gets back.

Lol, I have bailed my mom out several years in a row now, too.
Just for clarification...he doesn't actually go to a real jail, more like a call center where he can call people to contribute more money. At least that's the way they do it here!
