I Just Gotta Be Me

iphonethief.jpgWe've written time and time again about criminals being identified, incarcerated and databased by their often questionable display of tattoos, but this piece I discovered at Gizmodo this morning takes the cake. 

They report that 19-year-old Joseph Eric Williams is the mastermind behind a wave of iPhone thefts in South Florida.  However, while he's smart enough to pull off a string of tech-thefts, he doesn't appear to have been smart enough to not get an easily-identifiable facial tattoo before entering a life of crime: the words "I'M ME" over his left eye.

In an effort to evade police efforts, he might consider chaning it to read "I'M MEL" - though most American police officers (especially my Jewish brothers and sisters) are champing at the bit to throw a guy named Mel in the slammer.

My personal suggestion for Mr. Williams' potential cover-up, however, would be changing it to read "HI, MOM!"  After all, it probably won't be long before we see his face again... on a local Miami-Dade news broadcast while being taken into custody.

Cheers.



Justin - my protuding/simian/Scots-Hungarian brow is always here to offset Marisa's high-brow (for your blog-reading pleasure).



I have calluses on my knuckles from dragging them myself ;^)
