EGGSTRA ! EGGSTRA ! Read all about it …
“Walmart Egg Tossers Face Charges” is the headline in our local newspaper. I kid you not … I could not make this up and to top that the three young men involved are from my hometown !
Here’s what the newspaper reported:
“Three (local) men (in their 20’s) are facing multiple misdemeanor charges after a not-so-eggs-cellent adventure in Walmart. …. (and) have been charged with larceny/shoplifting and criminal damage to property after police say they threw raw eggs inside the store,
The incident, which was captured on store surveillance video, happened at about 2:30 this morning. “They went in the store, headed to the back where the eggs were and then they started,” said ___, Aberdeen deputy police chief.
When police arrived, they discovered the three men in the parking lot. After reviewing the surveillance video police took the men into custody. The men were not employees of the store.”
Now you can imagine what happened after that story ran. The reader’s comments poured in … 55 at last count … and here are just a few of them:
** They were not egg-sperts in getting away from the police
** I bet they scrambled when they saw the Police!!!
** EGGS! OMG ... I got in more trouble when I was a kid throwing eggs. But I was a kid (not in my twenties) and back in those days there weren't security cameras. Dumb, dumber and dumbest.
** Their brains must have been fried or scrambled when they decided to do this .....
** I hope the judge doesn't go over easy on them.
** I bet the Wal-Mart folks were eggstremely happy to see the Aberdeen PD. These kids were just practical yolkers, but Wal-Mart didn't seem to be in the mood for a good yolk
** It has all the makings of a classic hard-boiled crime novel.
( and my three favorites )
** Do they get the PULLETS-A-PRIZE for hatching this stupid idea?
** EGG-ISTENTIALISTS, no doubt.
