HEADLINE: Thief Steals Poop From Woman Walking Dog

"The hunt is on for a turd burglar. Police in San Diego are searching for a gunman who swiped a bag of poop from a woman out walking her dog.

The woman told police that she was out walking her dog, Misty, on Monday night when a man in his 20s ran up behind her and grabbed the bag she was holding.When the gunman discovered what was in it, he threw it down in disgust, pointed his gun at the 32-year-old woman and demanded money, San Diego police detective Gary Hassen said.He then aimed his .22-caliber semiautomatic at Misty and pulled the trigger twice but the gun didn't fire, Hassen said.The robber ran to a waiting small, silver car and fled the scene, police said."

I posted a link to this a few days ago, but they changed the text of the first sentence a few days ago. That statement was hilarious.

Yeah, I hear or read fragments of news stories and the like which I look up and verify on wire services and the like.

That one was amusing.
