Betcha can't say that subject three times fast. ;)

This could be the basis of a vehicle-theft solution that's cheaper than an alarm system. :)


Tobacco spit catches truck thief

A US man who stole a lorry was arrested after he choked on the truck driver's tobacco spit which he mistook for a drink.

The 26-year-old man stole the lorry, which had been left with the engine running, from a shopping centre in Vancouver, Washington.

He mistook the absent driver's tobacco-spit cup for a soft drink and took a swig, reports the Columbian.

The thief started choking and had to stop and call 911 for medical help, according to a Vancouver police department report.

Meanwhile, the driver, who had left the truck to wash his hands, had returned to see someone driving off and called police who quickly caught up with the man.

Good thing the driver didn't keep a chamber pot in there.

His cellmates can call him the Skoal Bandit...

The shortstop on my high school team chewed tobacco. One day in practice, a bad hop hit him squarely in the adams apple, and he swallowed a huge wad.

He laid on the ground for 20 minutes gagging and puking.

The idiot still chews today.

I knew a girl in high school who chewed. Very pretty girl, but I never had any wish to kiss her.

Girls that chew/smoke are huge turn offs for me. Eww.
