Beating The System
by Joey "The Biscuit" Tortoni.

Q: My wife thinks nothing of taking towels from hotels. Her rationale is, we paid for the room, and besides - how much can a towel cost? But I think this is wrong. Who's right?

A: She is. Take the towels, take the sheets, take the TV, and torch the damn place.

Q: I've accumulated a number of parking tickets, but I haven't paid them yet. Can I be arrested?

A: Here's what you do: abandon your car, steal another one, go down to the department of motor vehicles with all those tickets, light them, and torch the place.

Q: Settle an argument. My girlfriend says I should split the take from a recent liquor store robbery with another guy, who got caught. But I want to run and keep the money for myself. Who's right?

A: You are.
