Crime Is A Cakewalk

It's A Steal, Going Back To Jail

A Russian mugger stole a woman's cake as she walked by, then asked the victim to call police so he could go back to prison. A police spokeswoman in Krasnoyarsk, 4400 kilometres east of Moscow, said the thief told them he just wanted to return to jail. Charges carrying a potential jail sentence of three years were brought against the cake thief, who recently served a 12-year sentence.

FOOTNOTE: He must have had a sweet truth.

Sad. Very sad.

I'm picturing him eating the cake as he runs away from the authorities.

But I suppose he just stood there waiting for the arrest.

Classic example of truth being stranger than fiction.

He really takes the cake...

I agree with all---sad, as well as strange.

Equally sad is the fact he preferred a Russian-prison cell to "freedom" in such country.

And sometimes we ALL still catch ourselves saying,"Things just can't get any worse!"

Wanna bet?
