No, don't move - let me just steal your wallet

 

Friday Funnies again, aka ‘Eric’s too lazy at the end of the week to form a coherent argument and would rather just surf the Internet for off-the-wall stories that catch his attention.’

A sense of humour is important. In fact, it may be the second most virtuous virtue, right after generosity. So people who take issue with things like cheeky ad campaigns better be very generous; otherwise, they’re just jerks: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2203073/Creationists-attack-Dr-Pepper-soda-firm-posts-parody-evolution-ad.html

In case you were concerned, there’s still no shortage of bad guys on the planet. One of them robbed this paralympian’s home while she was away competing: http://www.app.com/article/20120912/NJNEWS/309120109/Toms-River-Paralympian-returns-home-from-London-Games-find-home-ransacked-treasures-missing?odyssey=tab|topnews|text|Frontpage

And another stole a man’s wallet after the drunk fellow fell onto the tracks at a subway station: http://ca.news.yahoo.com/swedes-shocked-bystander-robs-subway-fall-victim-leaves-164035801.html

Both perpetrators might benefit from a rehabilitation session conducted with these: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Diverse_torture_instruments.jpg

…to be followed by a year spent in Warwick Castle’s finest accommodations: http://www.google.ca/imgres?hl=en&client=firefox-a&hs=8ja&sa=X&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&biw=936&bih=725&tbm=isch&prmd=imvns&tbnid=eU0Lc9R7NWSSIM:&imgrefurl=http://travel.webshots.com/photo/1341470890052426461XWhItQ&docid=Glrp-jvrNlf_HM&imgurl=http://image42.webshots.com/43/7/8/90/341470890XWhItQ_ph.jpg&w=533&h=800&ei=DGZTULyzKYyM0QGCr4DICA&zoom=1&iact=rc&dur=442&sig=101245303899122231183&page=1&tbnh=175&tbnw=123&start=0&ndsp=12&ved=1t:429,r:5,s:0,i:89&tx=56&ty=69

Need a closeup on the sign?

Torture and incarceration…I told you this post would be funny!

This young man was shot in the hand after trying to kill a police officer with his car – but he’s been given a $26,000 settlement because the cop’s employer, Jersey City, doesn’t want to risk litigation: http://www.nj.com/hudson/index.ssf/2012/09/man_shot_in_hand_by_jersey_cit.html

OK, so when I said this would be the Friday Funnies, what I really meant was it would be a litany of depressing, human failings. So here’s some gratuitous sappiness to start your weekend on a positive note: http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/sideshow/dog-stands-guard-over-deceased-owner-grave-six-190556479.html
