MARICOPA COUNTY, Arizona - One of America's most famous sheriffs, Joe "Pinky" Arpaio sat in his sheriff's office reading the latest issue of The Rolling Stone magazine.
He was asked what he thought about the fact that one of Mexico's most infamous drug cartels, The Piñata De Queso group, has reportedly put out a $1 million hit on him.
Arpaio, said that he has had bounties on him before, although never one as much as $1 million. He laughed and said that last March he had read that The Green Guacamole Drug Cartel of Yucatan, Mexico had put out a $12,000 bounty, but this latest one is really 'big time.'
"Pinky" as he is called due to the fact that he makes all of his prisoners dress in pink, giggled and said that just this morning, he received a highly suspicious call from an old high school friend inviting him to dinner at an out-of-the-way diner at midnight down in Nogales, on the Arizona-Mexico border.
[EDITOR'S NOTE: Arpaio denies the fact that he really received his nickname due to the fact that he has a penchant for wearing pink women's bikini thong panties. Of course he adamantly denies it, but three ex-girlfriends have given notarized statements to the FBI saying that "Pinky" is in fact a closet cross dresser.]
Arizona Governor Jan "The Man" Brewer has said that she has had breakfast, lunch, and dinner with Sheriff Arpaio and that she has no doubt that Joey, as she calls him, can take on the entire Piñata De Queso Drug Cartel and he will have them all screaming "Tio" (Uncle) in no time.
In a related story. There are reports that a group of unemployed Eskimos living in Alaska heard about the $1 million bounty and they will be kayaking down to San Diego, California, and then taking a Greyhound Bus to Maricopa County, Arizona.
