"Fried Fridays: Can't leave well enough alone..."

They say it's perfectly normal, among miscreants. They're proud of what they do. They plan. They execute. They 'conquer', even if it is temporary.

But perhaps more than anything they want RECOGNITION.

Ah, the proverbial thing that bites them in the butt...


Meet 27 year-old Joseph Northington of Roanoke, Virginia.

He loves his much so that he traveled to South Carolina to visit one...and during his stay he traveled south across the Georgia border and apparently had designs to rob a north Augusta, Georgia bank.

Got $4,000, he did. All caught on surveillance cameras.

That's "fried" enough, I'll admit. But this week's winner's story doesn't stop there.

His friend saw the surveillance video on the news and alerted authorities.

OK, then THAT'S kind "fried" and worthy of this week's award.

Oh no, not yet...

You see, this devil-may-care perpetrator thought it would be "really cool" to go onto his MySpace account and type in the following...

"On tha run for robbin a bank Love all of yall"


Now THAT'S "fried"! The 'Idiot Self' is alive and well!!! Nothing says "jail-time" like waving a flag and yelling, "Here I am! Come and get me!"...

Have a great weekend, all y'all!

Too funny! I doubt that nut even HAD a "plan", much less clearly thought-out "execution" ... seems like an "impulsive what-will-happen-if-I-do-this" whim, and yes, probably for "glorified recognition" among his friends (including the one who turned him in, LOL!) ... what an absolute airhead!

Thanks for the hearty laugh!! :)

Suzy :)

P.S. On a more "serious" note, this clown is someone who's actually allowed/eligible to vote! Or well, he WAS anyway, LOL --- not anymore, not for quite awhile!! :)

Oh, Johnny-Boy - I have NO idea where I've been or where I am or where I'm going! Alas, I am reminded of J.R.R. Tolkien's quote, "All who wander are not lost." Truer words were never spoken!
