Romo was in Fort Worth helping an old lady across the street when he noticed a cat stuck up in a tree. After retrieving his coat from the puddle in the street, he and Jessica Simpson coaxed "Whiskers" down with a can of tuna (the "chicken of the sea"), much to the glee of the 8-year old owner. Cell phone videographers captured all of this on camera sent it to PETA, who were impressed with his compassion for animals. After lengthy negotiations, they convinced Romo to provide charity work and speak out against using chipmonk fur in fur coats. Alvin and Simon, understandably excited by this turn of events, have become instant Dallas Cowboys fans. Theodore could not be reached for comment.

Up next...Romo as the TIME Magazine "Man of the Year."


The irony of it all, is that the coat that Romo used to help the old lady cross the street with was one of his dozens of chipmunk fur coats. I don't think PETA is going to be very happy about that.

There have been worse attempts at publicity. I mean, it's not like Tony was sporting a loaded Glock (with the safety off mind you) in his superman underroos while clubbing...but to each their own.

Give the guy a break. Especially with everyone saying "he's trying to revive his media image." It really wasn't that bad in the first place. Also, what do you want him to do? The guy does a nice thing and gets bashed for it...Romo really can't win around here, can he?

Glock's don't have safeties. Doh! ;-D

Well, they do for us normal people, but...for the "Barney Fife of Hip Hop" perhaps they don't.

Uhh...they really don't. Glock's are designed that way. You can google it and learn more about it.

That Barney Fife of Hip Hop is funny, though.

Yeah, the safety on a glock is not to put your finger on the trigger. If your finger pulls the trigger and a round is chambered it is going to go off. They don't have a manual safety.

I understand they don't have a manual safety, but they do have internal safety mechanisms that prevent the from firing if dropped. Namely keeping your finger off the trigger, that's what I meant by safety off. Of all the drops Plax has had in his career, I think we can all agree this one is inexplicable.

In other words, Braylon Edwards should NEVER be allowed to own a gun, right? ;-D
