He could at least be creative. Like he and his wife build nerf playgrounds for autistic kids, and his wife sold her hair for baby formula.

Candygram for Mongo: You mean 100 miles away dontcha subby?


Nice catch. It took me a second to process that, sadly.

I'd really like to know how in the hell the owner can prove what his mileage was before he lent it. I think grand theft auto is a pretty rough charge for this. It surely ought to be something less, but not entirely off the hook. Misuse of a vehicle or something like that. I might be full of shiat.

How can he be charged for stealing it if it was returned?
Borrower and lender were both dumbasses.

I went back and read this more closely. Where is the information that he "lent" this car to "someone he knows?" I now get the impression that the guy reported his car missing and had no idea where it might have gone to. Then, as he is filing his report, some yokel drives up and returns the car and is all "hey man, I just borrowed this to go get some cigarettes. No big deal."

Is the fark title misleading, or am I missing something

If he returned it there really isnt any theft. GTA is a bullcrap charge for something that amoumts to about $60 is usage.

So does that mean they counted as Marlboro Miles, too?

Nicotine is a hell of a drug.

C'mon, you get them really cheap at the reservation store. And no tax! It's worth the extra drive.

/Agrees with everyone else; this is a bit steep for GTA... though dude is guilty of being weird.

Maybe the guy really let his buddy borrow the car, and then had regrets the next morning and called the police. I mean, it's just he-said, he-said.

I once had a neighbor like that but I wasn't stupid enough to loan him my car, he only returned lawn mowers once they were broken.

Well I would drive 200 miles, and I would drive 200 more, just to be the man who drove 400 miles cause I'm a Marlboro whore.

How I Met Your Mother has ruined this song for me. I actually like the show and like the song, but I can't disassociate the two anymore.

When sung by celtic thunder, this has to be one of the best songs ever.

My take on the story is that the guy never asked to use the car. Therefore he stole it.

My take is that the dumbass owner left his keys in the car and that he should be thrilled the car was brought back at all.

I know! I walked out of Best Buy with a flat panel without paying for it, and they charged me with theft. The nerve! I was gonna bring it back after the super bowl.
