Needling the players

Someone asked me once if it was possible to be way over the bounds of acceptability and still be funny.

Well, of course. For instance: a fan lobbed a syringe at Barry Bonds last night in San Diego.

Now, throwing anything on the field is indefensible and not to be encouraged under any circumstances. Bonds, properly, handled the matter with the utmost disdain. Still, the punchline will not be denied.

A better one, though, was a sign in the stands that read simply "*".
