All that in less than 4 minutes! The police must have been keeping an eye out for him! and.....what.....no parrot?!? ....aaarrgh!
I have heard of a One Arm Bandit stealing people blind....but a One Eyed Bandit!
Good thing the justice system isn't "an eye for an eye"... seems like this guy doesn't have too many to spare.
and the theft, thats ok. i dont think thats right. theft is theft, welfare recipient or not, in every state.
Hey, Matt. Long time, no see. Say Hi to everyone at the "Dot" for me, OK?
