Did the van have a wheelchair lift?

I was going to submit this just as subby did, but I thought, nah, that's too lame, even for Fark.

See this just a ploy by the A-Team to get 'inside' so they can help out a wrongly imprisoned inmate who was jailed for the murder of his former boss.  But it was a set up by a car theft ring ran by his former boss at the auto body shop he worked at and his second in command wanted to cut out the boss so he could take over.  And his cute sister just knows that he didn't do it, see?

Right, English cops capturing the A-Team.

I only got the B-Team. They ended up a little short.

It's hard to say from the tweeted pic, but if I were wheelchair-bound, I'd want an A-Team van.

How did I know somebody had beat me to it.

Pfft, they only pretended to be apprehended.  Clearly, they needed to bust someone out of prison, while exposing a corrupt prison warden, and this was the least plausible method for entry.

By Jove, it all makes sense now. Thanks! Now help me turn this washing machine into a rotary mortar launcher that will blow up the henchman's vehicles without killing or maiming anyone.

I love it when a plan comes together

Of course 12000 rounds of ammunition and dozens of RPGs were used in the routine traffic stop... and no one even got a scratch!

"We don't want to brag, but we just caught 4 suspects who've been on the run from a high-security prison since 1972"

Yes, I wouldn't brag either if it took me 40 years to catch someone

They are being held together in a holding cell filled with power tools and mechanical supplies.

Getting a kick because I just watched an A-Team episode yesterday. First time in decades IIRC. They were stopping escaped Nazis who were building a nuclear reactor in the jungle.

On reflection, the average porno has a plot less far-fetched than A-Team episodes.

/people in pornos are more likely to be hit by a spray burst, too

While I had an infusion the other day, I watched the movie starring Liam Neeson.  The wife picked it up for me from the library thinking it was a few episodes of the show.  I wish now I would have just carried on a conversation with the annoying lady sitting next to me instead.

Curious Q:  Why the hate for that movie?   It was big dumb fun like the show.

I thought for sure they would have been caught in Mexico.

IMHO, the movie was better than the show.  Over-the-top but still in the realm of believability with the Rube-Goldberg devices.  It should have spawned at least two or three sequels.

I enjoyed it as well. Dirk and Dwight were only pissed that their skits were bumped to the DVD.

L'agence tous risques, c'est vraiment
La dernière chance au dernier moment
Les mauvais coups, des truands
L'agence les règle au comptant
Si l'injustice, vous attend
L'agence tous risques, l'attend au tournant
Pour la victime aux abois
Tout à coups elle surgira
Dans les dangers, ces rois du sang-froid
Ces voyageurs, sans visa
Ont livré le bon combat
