ROME (Reuters) – A Sicilian man stole sweets and a packet of chewing gum so he could get arrested and spend New Year's Eve in a jail cell rather than be with his wife and relatives, Italian media reported on Friday.

The 35-year old Sicilian first showed up at a police station on Thursday asking to be arrested because he preferred spending the night in prison rather than with his family, but was rebuffed because he had not committed a crime, the Agi news agency said.

Yeah, but there are some potential drawbacks, the attentions of "Big Bubba Da Lovva" heading up the list... ;-)

A guy I work with informed his ex-wife on x-mas eve that he was getting a divorce. Told her that he couldn’t do christmas at her folks anymore. That was 25 years ago. True story.

Great. You’ll never regret it. Labs are a joy. Red labs are rare. Red Hot Chile is a great name.

Actually the take care of the critters. The old man, Poops (because that’s what he does best!) got a possum a couple years ago. Now that was a serious battle.

We’ll see about Chile. I don’t think she’s ever been exposed to game.

No moles in our yard. Chirt and clay would require blasting by the little demons. But LulaBelle would get them.
