      The Chicago police department is ragingly incompetant. No wonder a ten year-old has to resort to defending his own house against burglars.

            If a house had a big loud party last night, then something ain't right if it's quiet the next morning.

              A big loud party at a house with only two cars in the garage and none on the street. But, of course, the Wet Bandits are clueless to anything logical.

                            Around Christmas, there is not a single friend, relative, or co-worker that you know who will be in town that can stop by your house to check on your deserted son. NOT ONE.

                              When walking up a tar infested stairway, don't bother looking down to see if there's anything else there that could hurt your feet.

                                    If his name is Snakes and he sounded like a Snake, maybe that's why he's called Snakes.

                                        Don't try to lure children out of the house by pretending to work for Santa Claus. You might get shot in the groin.

                                          Calling your nephew a little jerk within earshot of said nephew's father will never result in you getting asked to leave or punched in the mouth.

                                            If a blow-torch is burning your head, you probably won't move away from it within a split second. Instead, you'll stand there for a good 4 seconds and let it burn you and you'll definitely live.

                                                  I work in retail, and if someone walked out the door with a PlayStation 3 console, you'd better NOT leave the store and run after him or you're fired. Kevin accidentally stole a toothbrush, and the sales guy chased him for a block before yelling "SHOPLIFTER!" and having a cop chase him for several minutes. OVER. A. TOOTHBRUSH.
