I wish I did not eat those Dunkin Donuts before my burglary! I am suing them for adding so many pounds in a short amount of time.

After they poured the oil, the heat kicked on and it smelled like a turkey cooking downtown in Thorntown.

He should sue the Grocery Store for making their vent shafts to narrow......he could win millions.

Best he would get is atleast an honorable mention since you have to die to win the award. However, I'm not 100% this would even qualify for HM

Should have tossed him a cigarette and a lighter as well.

Oh, that would have burnt the merchandise.

This was one of the funniest stories I have seen in a long time. I hope this young man learned his lesson. I would think the embarrisment would have been enough to keep him in the house for a long time. lol
