Well, That's the Shits

Here I am sitting here getting ready to go home and the toolbar crawl at the top of my browser has this headline:

Crime Blotter: In Search of the Unintentional Turd Burglar
SAN DIEGO — San Diego police are searching for an alleged turd burglar.

On March 28, police say, a gunman swiped a bag of poop from a woman who was walking her dog. The woman told police that she was walking her dog, Misty, when a man who appeared to be in his 20s ran up behind her and grabbed the bag containing Misty's feces.

When the unintentional alleged turd burglar discovered what was in the bag, police said, he threw it down, pointed his gun at the woman and demanded money. Police said he then pointed the gun at Misty. He pulled the trigger twice but the gun didn't fire.

The gunman ran off to a waiting car, which sped off, the woman told police. While police were still looking for the man, Misty was thankful she had nine lives — even though she's not a cat.

Now you know, when something as newsworthy as that catches your eye it has to be shared.
