Fun with powder coffee creamer.

Light a match.

Sprinkle down powder coffee creamer from above.

Woof!

(How do you make a cat talk like a dog?  Douse it with gasoline and set it on fire.  It will go 'WOOF!')

I go to that particular Trader Joe's every now and then...you'd be surprised to see how many women put their purses in their shopping carts.

Marks is still dealing with the theft of her wallet and ID. The thieves drove right from Trader Joe's to Chase Bank in North Hollywood and got a $5,000 cash advance using her driver license.

My license picture doesn't look like anybody, including me.

Half-and-half, not coffee creamer,  Subby. You can't make a White Russian with coffee creamer.  But that's just like, my opinion, man.

In desperation, it'll do.

i hear they have coffee cans that are the most modestly priced receptacles

It's easy to find a behind the times loser.  Just look who is writing a person check at the supermarket.

Using a match is best.  It will make a mess of your lighter.

Or, you can go whole hog - but I suggest you do it outdoors.  It's similar to a grain elevator explosion.

Lorelle: I go to that particular Trader Joe's every now and then...you'd be surprised to see how many women put their purses in their shopping carts.


I never cease to be amazed by this.  One lady I saw last night had her purse in the "child seat" section of the cart, with her ipad open on top (grocery app, I'm sure), parked her cart at the end of the produce bin and was walking around with her back to the cart for a good 5 minutes while she perused the apples.  It would have been nothing for someone to take both ipad and purse.

Seriously - anyone who leaves their bag unattended should not be surprised if they get burgled.

Don't put your purse in your shopping cart? Shocking!

Saw the same thing yesterday, purse in the child seat, with the woman pulling the tail end of the cart behind her, looking away from her purse.

I'll bet it was Mr. Nussbaum.

Hence the reason Target was picked over WalMart.

We could do a meme on this idea. "You don't know how hard it is, having so much money I'm a target of fraudsters."

Never ignore a great opportunity. Open purse? Free money. Open purse? Free credit cards. It's the 'Murican way.

CSB - When I was in college, one of the dorms had parking underneath it.  One day, a girl had left her convertible running while she ran up into the building to get her friend.  She seemed completely surprised that her car was gone by the time she got back down to where she left it.

It seems that those with the most money are the most careless with it.

"The next day, they got a moving violation on the freeway and showed police Martha's license. When they failed to show up in court, the DMV suspended Martha's license."

Huh? How the hell does that work? Cops don't even bother looking at pictures on licenses anymore?

The mark was probably chosen because she had a passing resemblance to one of the scammers.   Some women wear so much makeup that nearly anyone of the same general age and race could be them.

Even if the scammer was fat and the mark was skinny, is a cop really going to point that out?

The scammer had already used the license to receive a large cash advance.

We used to joyride the pizza delivery cars around the block when they'd leave them running on campus.

Yeah it was before camera phones or I'd post a video. Did you never have fun as a youth and just can't see that others did?

i would not have understood subby's reference to Ralph's until recently. i am not from SoCal. I went to Santa Barbara recently and experienced Ralph's first hand. Let me just say, I've been to restaurants in Turkey, toilets in Prague, but take it from me, you ain't seen filth until you visit a neighborhood store.

No, you didn't.

You did not commit auto theft.  Because campus security, and likely the police don't think it's too funny.

I'm sure it was a cool story to tell your bros at the bar when you were home for thanksgiving break and all, but we both know it never happened.

Correct, nobody broke any laws.
