If it didn’t involve a real kid, this would be one of the funniest things I’ve ever heard. Down in Texas, a 13 year old kid whose dad was too busy to remember his birthday, ordered an extra copy of daddy’s credit card and used it to live a poorly socialized 13 year old kid’s dream. He and a friend got an Xbox, a hotel room, a bunch of junk food and, of course, a couple of hookers to play video games with. From the story:
The escort girls who were released without charge, told the arresting officers something was up when the kids said they would rather play Xbox than get down to business.”
The very best part is this:
They [the kids] told the suspicious working girls they were people of restricted growth working with a traveling circus, and as State law does not allow those with disabilities to be discriminated against they had no right to refuse them.”
OMG. That right there is one of the funniest things I’ve ever read. Maybe if this kid can get himself together he can eventually go to work as a writer for some trashy-but-very-funny adult cartoon show.
He’s been sentenced to 3 years probation on a fraud conviction. The case was probably required by the credit card companies as a prerequisite for eating the $30K in fraudulent charges the kid racked up. Dad on the other hand, is planning on making up for missing Jr.’s birthday by taking him to Disneyland. Of course.
Oh, and my career advice not withstanding, the kid plans to go into the field of work best suited to his talents – politics.
