Fifty-Seven Channels and Nothin' On

Sometimes it's best to just suck it up and go to Best Buy.

A local man bought a 52-inch plasma screen television on eBay for $2,000. When his "shipment" arrived, however, it only played one movie, "I'm Gonna Git You Sucka".

See his television's picture was sweet, but that's ALL it was; a PICTURE....of a 52-inch plasma screen TV.

Apparently the guy who sold the photo is an eighteen year old kid from Georgia. He was arrested and charged with theft by deception for allegedly scamming at least three people, bringing his profit up to $6,000 for you folks playing along at home. Meanwhile his bail is set at $5,600, so he made a $400 dollar profit when all was said and done. And thank God. Now he's still got enough money leftover to buy a Tivo.

Now don't get me wrong, I feel bad for the man who was punked and all, and to get a $2,000 picture in the mail would piss me off too. BUT it also made me laugh. And you gotta admit, that kid is pretty darn resourceful.

I mean at the very least he can still watch the local news coverage of his arrest in hi def.
