Natural Born Killers

So... Mickey and Mallory are back.
Check this out, true story.

There is currently a fugitive on the loose.
A few days ago, a woman threw wire cutters
into a private prison facility, where her husband,
and two other inmates cut the fence and escaped.

Is this a prison, or a gated community?

Why (or how) is it possible to:
a) get wire cutters
b) cut the gate!?

So three inmates and this insane woman were on the run.
Two of the inmates were "captured" and we learn that
the man and woman are fiancées and cousins.
(you can't make this shit up)

They interviewed the man's stepfather (why?!),
and he explained that, "they think they're 
Bonnie and Clyde, but they're not."

Whew.  I thought fictional characters were real.

If these two idiots could be any fictional fugitives,
I'd want them to be Mickey and Mallory from
Natural Born Killers.  Those two were cool.
Start a trend.  Inspire people to be free.

and Denis Leary involved.

Where's Rodney Dangerfield when you need him?

Scan my Pocket

So, a friend of mine recently told me
that there's a new scam out there
where a criminal can scan
your credit cards by
brushing against
your back

Perhaps that's what you get for being lazy.
Is it too hard to have to swipe the thing?
You just want to hold your card up to
the gas pump or that thing at the
supermarket checkout line...

...well, that's what you get.

I told my friend not to worry about being a victim.
They're probably only targeting people who 
look like they've got lots of money.

Isn't it bad enough that the 
credit cards are ripping us off?
Charging ridiculous interest rates, and subsequently
putting people into permanent dept for 
spending money they don't have...
(isn't that what the banks did?!)

Why should we be held to a standard 
that the federal government isn't held to?
What is our national dept at this point?

Are there any bill collectors knocking
on the front door of the white house?
(perhaps one day there will be)

Hopefully by then I'll know
how to speak Chinese anyhow.

Either way, I'll take the extra two seconds
