:lol: Makes me think of a Jedi mind-trick.

Bum: Oh, looky there! A mouse!
Baby (waves imperiously) You don't need to chase the mouse.
Bum: I don't need to chase the mouse...
Baby: You need to push the pram.
Bum: I need to push the pram...
Baby: Move along.
Bum: Move along, move along...

:lol: I love it!

Did you read that article I linked the other day? Here it is:

Seniors beat up financial adviser with Zimmer frame


Beating up a financial adviser with a Zimmer frame is more than the whole of America has managed to do with Wall Street since 1929. Some German pensioners now known as the OAP mob are now heroes and being charged for this bit of “natural regulation”.

The pensioners are claimed to have kidnapped American born adviser James Amburn and allegedly tortured him. They had to stop regularly because they became out of breath. Amburn claims he was chained up in a cellar, and has two broken ribs.

The problem was that the OAP mob had lost their $3.6 million investments in Kuwait and elsewhere. Amburn escaped after convincing them to allow him to send a fax to a bank, on which he left a note telling whoever received the fax to call the police.

Unfortunately for Amburn, he used the English word for police, which in German means policy. (The German word for police is “polizei”.) Eventually someone figured it out, and a SWAT team arrived and freed him after a failed escape attempt in which the OAP mob’s neighbors caught him when they claimed he was a burglar. Amburn claims that it was after this attempt that he sustained the two broken ribs.

The OAP mob was charged with illegal hostage taking and grievous bodily harm. Amburn states that he was also threatened with the Russian mafia, and is still in fear of his life.

The OAP mob are also now getting fan mail, according to German police. German authorities are however somewhat disenchanted with the OAP mob, who they claim had invested undeclared “black” money and lost it.

Interesting to note that regulation of financial markets, when carried out by alleged criminals, attracts more favorable attention than government regulation.

The US might want to check out a pilot program. There might yet be a use for all those gangstas.

This for real? Man, that's awful! While I sympathize with their losses, I'm glad they were caught and didn't kill him, but these two bits did make me chuckle:

...The pensioners are claimed to have kidnapped American born adviser James Amburn and allegedly tortured him. They had to stop regularly because they became out of breath...

...Amburn escaped after convincing them to allow him to send a fax to a bank, on which he left a note telling whoever received the fax to call the police. Unfortunately for Amburn, he used the English word for police, which in German means policy. (The German word for police is “polizei”.)...

I sympathise, too. I bet he didn't do that again!

My goodness, though -- how bad do you think he felt about being battered by a bunch of oldies? He must have felt well stupid when reporting it.

Heh! I'm glad to see they've been getting respect, but I can't agree with them making such a mess of him. That was a bit too much.

Dang! That reminds me of a classic Monty Python sketch:

:lol: *sniffle* "He was only 47!"

That was hysterical! You know, I just realized that if you changed the black hats and dresses for black bowlers with white shirts, pants and vests you'd have scenes from A Clockwork Orange!

You know, I feel really bad now. I told some friends of mine last night that Halloween was going to be on Friday the 13th this year, and nobody even so much as blinked! I give up...
