Dumb and Dumber (and just plain stupid)

Sorry folks, no picture today because I haven't had a chance to do anything other than work on 'the book'.

However, this was on the front page of the Toronto Star newspaper this morning and it falls under the category of how STUPID people can be....under the headline "Shoplifters pay for TV confession"....."Even by the confessional standards of the Dr. Phil television show, it was a whopper of an admission. The nicely dressed couple said they had roamed several states as shoplifters, stealing mostly toys, selling them on the Internet and making as much as $1 million (US) over seven years"....."I'm no lawyer or a cop," said show host Phil McGraw, incredulously, "but isn't that a federal crime?".

The article then goes on to say that a federal grand jury in San Diego handed down an indictment against Mathew Allen Eaton, 34 and his wife, Laura, 26 and are using a transcript of the show as evidence.

Ummmmm......DUH????

they must have had a conscience and needed to tell someone about it.

Actually, MA, I'm trying to figure out the story about the Spindles - what did I miss? Not quite dumb but getting a bit close to it, she says?
