The Great Strawberry Heist

The thieves watched and observed from a safe distance, noting my movements 24/7, 365 days a year.

It […]

Click for larger view Courtesy: Marc Roberts If I wasn’t so used to such oxymoronic statements, I’d have already fallen off my chair after reading the below quote — in either hysterical laughter, or hysterical despair.
