The “Headlines” clip starts after the first commercial break, about 11 minutes into the show.

— A November entry from The Record in the Steamboat Pilot & Today had Jay Leno laughing Monday night.

During his “Head­lines” segment on “The Jay Leno Show,” the host pulled out The Record clipped from the Today with an entry about a police call on West Acres Drive.

The Record entry was from a call Nov. 2, printed in the Nov. 4 issue of the Today. The entry stated:

“5:38 p.m. Police were called to a report of a suspicious incident in the 2900 block of West Acres Drive, where a woman reported that she found feces in her toilet that she did not think she put there. There was no damage to the house and no other reason to believe someone had been inside the house.”

It is unknown who submitted the entry to the show. The Record consists of Steamboat Springs and Routt County police, fire and ambulance calls and runs daily on page 10 in the Today and inside the A section in the Sunday Pilot & Today.

On Wednesday, Steamboat Springs Police Capt. Joel Rae sought to remind community members that calls to the police can appear humorous to readers but often are the result of very real and scary incidents for those involved.

“We acknowledge that there are some items that appear in The Record that are funny, but sometimes you always have to put yourself in the shoes of the victim in those situations and not lose sight of that,” Rae said. “People call us on their worst days, and I don’t want the community to lose sight of that.”

Well Mr. Rae, sometimes you always have to find a way to laugh at stuff. You make it sound like someone emailed Mr. Leno a story about one of the sexual assaults that's occurred in our valley and asked him to joke about it. It's poo man. It happens.

UPDATE: Woman remembers that it was in fact her who left the poo and claims she remembered only after a toke of her pain medicine had jostled her cloudy memory.

LOL.

With the retirements of the Far Side and Calvin & Hobbes cartoonists, The Record is the only comic strip worth reading.

I can see it now..... Forensics experts used a new technique similar to identifyiing victims bite marks to determine who the suspect poo came from. After months of analysis, it was determined that the poo could not have come from the homeowner due to specific incompatabilities. Said the expert witness:

"This is a 12 year olds poo, you can tell by the unique markings that a full grown adult could not have produced this mess"

Should we all call the police for porkypine intrusions, or unflushed toilets? Give me a break, some of the calls on this report should cause the caller to pay for their stupidity. Why do we have to pay our police force to respond to such idiotic calls when we cannot even manage to plow all of the roads in this county.

I'm just glad the entry didn't turn out like most of the animal-at-large calls and end with, "... when officers arrived the poo was gone."

Good one!

While we're on the topic, here's my favorite Record entry . . .

The Record - June 6

Wednesday, June 7, 2006

4:16 a.m. A drunken man in the 2300 block of Mount Werner Circle claimed to have lost his monkey. Police said they were trying to help the man find his way home and eventually turned the man over to his father. The man's father told police that his son does have a monkey and that they would find it in the morning.

In my best Dieter from SNL's Schprockets, "Touch my monkey. Touch it!"

WZ, Here's my favorite:

4:39 p.m. A complaint was made that a gray sport utility vehicle with the bumper sticker that read "Honk if you love crack" was spotted in the 200 block of Lincoln Avenue. The reporting party said those kind of people were not wanted in this town and asked police to investigate.

I liked the one from a few years back when a broke husband and wife were fighting over the last cigarette. The cop that showed up took them both to the store and bought them each a pack!

Those are hilarious, nice to see some funny comments for a change. I love that someone had so much time on their hands to report an "offending" bumper sticker and demand investigation. I remember once reading a blotter entry to a relative that lives in Manhattan, about "foul language being reported on 8th and Oak" She would not believe me until I sent it to her, it must have been before Pilot online.
