    #669 because that is where the money is.

  2. The Chunnel??? How else do you get to Fraaaaance!

    Bank robbers? Because it’s where the money is. (And Willy Sutton never said that.)

    #667 I don’t understand how women can wear bracelets. I loved them when I was in high school and it was cool to be all jingly, but once I got out of school they just got in the way. I got things to DO!

      My coworker wears bracelets that quite literally jingle jangle jingle all the time. It is like a bell on a cat. I always know where she is.

    Wow! Bracelets up to the arm pit. That could make it difficult to drive, or um…go to the “powder” room. Why would someone do that to themselves? I work in a hardware store. Bracelets are dangerous to wear.

    Bank Robbers = Lazy, stupid people who can’t get a real job.

    I have to admit. I wasn’t sure what the Chunnel was until I read the comments. Sorry, I lead a sheltered life.

    I have been married twice, and I should have known the first marriage was destined for collapse when my mother told me that the nice man who had played jazz guitar at my wedding (nothing like a little bossa nova version of Here Come’s the Bride to make the day special), and who also happened to be the barber she and my dad went to (he was a jack of all trades, as it turns out) was arrested for robbing a bank two weeks after my wedding. The bank in the shopping plaza where his barber shop was. Where he did his business. Where they knew him. And his get away vehicle was a bicycle.

    So if I may provide any clarity to your confusion around bank robbers: DRUGS. They make you stoopid.
