Did you hear about the recent bank heist in Davis where the bandit was refused service because the plastic bags he brought to carry away the loot were not the re-useable type? The frustrated robber argued that Nugget plastic grocery bags were obviously re-usable, since he was putting them to a secondary use, namely crime. Further, he pointed out that the nylon stocking (with the run in it) that he was wearing over his head to disguise his identity was recycled and re-purposed from his wife’s collection of locally-purchased and now discarded stockings. At which point, the nonplussed bank clerk told the failed-felon to go home and get some rest, and reminded him he had a late-night Natural Resources Commission meeting ahead of him that evening. As the would-be thief skulked away, the helpful clerk suggested, “Next time you have a short-term cash flow problem, please use the ‘plastic’ in your wallet.” — Happy Epiphany from yours truly, Colorful Clay.
