Greed With Envy

Nothing Is Certain Except Debt And Taxis

Two Romanian greengrocers who broke into a rival's warehouse to steal his entire stock of grapes were caught – because they hired three taxis to ferry away their haul. Police stopped the convoy and found sacks of grapes filling the boot and interior of all three vehicles.

FOOTNOTE: Shower grapes.
