The local news tonight reported that the police are looking for a pair of thieves who broke into three fast food joints on Christmas. I expressly don’t say they robbed the restaurants, as only the second one actually had a little money in it. There’s footage of the would-be burglars, and it seems likely that they’ll be picked up soon.
Honestly I’m most amazed that they thought there’d be any money, let alone enough to make it worth the risk.
My Impression of the Planning Stage of the Crime Spree
Doof #1: “Hey! Mickey D’s will be closed on Christmas! Like, nobody will be there! Now’s our chance!”
Doof #2: “Wouldn’t they have taken most of the money to the bank after closing the night before?”
Doof #1: “Listen to me! No one will be there! It’ll be a cinch!”
Doof #2: “Do you think they have video surveillance?”
Doof #1: “Everyone will be home! It’s like they’re inviting us in!”
Doof #2: “I dunno…”
Doof #1: “Eggnog shaaaaaakes!”
Doof #2: “Hell yeah! I’ll drive!”
