" Sentencing Jones to 17 years in prison"

Doesn't that seem like a light sentence.

^ Should have been a question.

I'd hit it ... if I could find it.
2003-01-17 12:25:43 PM  
What the hell kind of hitman do you expect for $160?
2003-01-17 12:27:43 PM

This reminds me of that Big Audio Dynamite song, "Dial-a-Hitman."
2003-01-17 12:33:02 PM  
Freaking amateurs lol
2003-01-17 12:33:03 PM  
Amateur. Ventilate the head if you want them dead, shoot the belly if you want things smelly.
2003-01-17 12:33:09 PM  
NOT the brightest bulb in the pack. Maybe we should send Chuck Barris over to show 'em how its done....
2003-01-17 12:33:37 PM  
This story soon to be a major motion picture.
2003-01-17 12:35:18 PM  
I want my money back.
2003-01-17 12:36:43 PM  
Good one. He'd probably just gong him, but at least he'd gong the right guy.
2003-01-17 12:37:24 PM  
The Demons of Stupidity have apparently been working a lot of overtime--with all the job cuts in H*ll there are less and less demons to do the same amout of work.

Cool. One second apart. I think that's a new record.

as long as we're posting movie images.

Of course he's "Mr. Wrong", he's a Mister.
2003-01-17 12:39:46 PM  
I was hoping that you'd know better.

I was hoping, but you're an amateur.

I was hoping that you'd know better, but I've been wrong before.
2003-01-17 12:39:58 PM  
Reminds me of the time I carried out a hit: right girl, but wrong hole, or was it wrong girl, right hole.

Oh well.

This reminds me of the coolest upcoming sequel EVAR: "The Whole Ten Yards."
2003-01-17 12:41:17 PM  
Ford Granada? I wouldn't kill for less than a plymouth Duster----(shows my age)
2003-01-17 12:42:53 PM

BUMHITS.........$20 and a bottle of mouthwash to have bums knock people off.......ROFL

Jean Reno isn't impressed.

403 Forbidden. Damnit.

Natalie Portman's pretty pissed about this too.
2003-01-17 12:49:01 PM  
that guy must have graduated froom the rube goldberg school for gangsters.
2003-01-17 12:49:05 PM  
He got the wrong Burns. It was supposed to be Montgomery, not Douglas.
2003-01-17 12:51:21 PM  
he should share a cell with the letter writer
2003-01-17 12:51:36 PM  
$160 and a used car.....Jebus, talk about lowest bidder
2003-01-17 12:51:51 PM  
Do they still make a Ford Granada in the U.K. ? There is no way a Granada would be worth that much here since they stopped making them in the '80s (I think)
2003-01-17 12:51:55 PM  
Just love that 318k JPEG. One word. OPTIMIZE.
2003-01-17 12:52:48 PM  
Man, those Brit are going down hill...first, the guy sending money to the Camaroonianite who he thought was a Ukranian beauty queen, and then this.

The English are turning into the Barney Fifes of NATO.
2003-01-17 12:53:44 PM  
Shouldn't have got that discount hitter.

Gale: Alright ya' hayseeds, it's a stick-up. Everybody freeze. Everybody down on the ground.
Old Man in bank: Well, which is it young feller? You want I should freeze or get down on the ground? Mean to say, if'n I freeze, I can't rightly drop. And if'n I drop, I'ma gonna be in motion. You see--
Gale: Shut up!
Old Man in bank: Okay then.
Gale: Everybody down on the ground!
Evelle: Y'all can just forget that part about freezin' now.
Gale: Better still to get down there.
Evelle: Yeah, y'all hear that, don't ya'?
[Everybody lays down. Gale looks at the now-empty teller windows.]
Gale: shiat! Where'd all the tellers go?!
Teller's voices: We're down here sir.
Evelle: They're on the floor as you commanded, Gale.
2003-01-17 12:58:27 PM  
Love that game
2003-01-17 12:58:36 PM  
I didn't know you could get a hit man at a BJ's or Sam's Club.
2003-01-17 01:01:47 PM  
Canuck Guy

Gale: Dammit! I said no names!
Evelle: ...not...even... the fake names?
Gale: Uh... Yeah! Y'hear that? We're usin' fake names!

(or something)
2003-01-17 01:03:41 PM  
Did the guy get his money and car back?
2003-01-17 01:04:35 PM  
I've got the Slim Pickens-esque theme running through my head now...

2003-01-17 01:07:18 PM  
Gale: Let's go see a movie!
Evelle: OK!
Gale: Would you like some grapes?
Evelle: No, we're robbing a bank here!
Gale: Alright, then.
2003-01-17 01:11:08 PM  
Regarding the Granada, apparently it was made in the UK from 1985-1994 and a later model sedan would look like this:

The site said the used value would top out at about £2500.
...for what it's worth.
2003-01-17 01:14:41 PM  
Odd, Ford made a Granada in the US in the Early 70's.
2003-01-17 01:17:26 PM  
hahahahahahaha what a dumbarse. $160 and a used car, and a Ford on top of it. The judge should make him hang a picture of a Ford Granada in his cell for the next 17 years.
