Man Admits to Vaseline Vandalism in N.Y.
Associated Press ^ | Wed, Dec 08, 2004

Posted on 12/08/2004 6:54:46 AM PST by presidio9

A Virginia man admitted Monday to smearing 14 jars of petroleum jelly all over an upstate New York motel room.

Robert F. Chamberlain, 45, of McLean, gave no reason for his actions when he appeared in court to plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge of criminal mischief.

A Broome County judge sentenced Chamberlain to three years of probation and ordered him to pay $3,886 in damages to the Motel 6 in Chenango.

Authorities said Chamberlain coated every object of the motel room with petroleum jelly in May. A cleaning crew discovered the mess after he checked out, and he was arrested at another motel covered in the greasy stuff.

Chamberlain declined comment after the proceedings.

What? People in other states don't smear entire rooms in Vaseline? I guess they're going to try to make us think its a strange habit or something...

I know a girl who thinks of ghosts
She’ll make you breakfast
She’ll make you toast
She don’t use butter
She don’t use cheese
She don’t use jelly
Or any of these
She uses Vaseline
Vaseline
Vaseline...

This IS the correct Robert F. Chamberlain....

Never turn on a blacklight (ultraviolet light) in a hotel room. Trust me on this.

Oh, go ahead and turn one on. Just bring a big roll of 6 mil plastic sheeting and cover the bed with it if you ever want another night's sleep in there though.
