  1. If I ever decide to break into a building, I hope I steal something more enticing than toilet paper and paper towels. Sadly, though, this burglary may speak to the state of our economy.

  2. Though the toilet paper is funny, I am more interested in the woman on Erwin Park Road whose dog ran down the stairs “parking”…my dog won’t even heel!

    You mean like a turtleneck sweater? Folks, I think we have our suspect…

  4. After deciding that Charmin his girlfriend was paramount,
    The Alleged Poipetrator,
    convinced that he would go Scott free if caught,
    but,
    like zorro,
    intended to leave his Marcal at the scene of the crime,
    and,
    motivated by zealous patriotism,
    felt his nefarious actions were absolutely in synch with America’s Choice,
    proceeded to place his sticky fingers
    (don’t ask how they got sticky)
    upon $656 worth of bathroom tissue, and other
    housekeeping items.

    Upon fleeing the scene,
    The Alleged Poipetrator
    broke through the Canadian border crossing, where,
    upon feeling overwhelmed by guilt,
    hid under a Quilted Northern blankie.
