Grease thief thieves grease, cops cop fop


Why can’t anyone take a dignified mugshot anymore?

This man, David Richardson, was arrested for trying to steal used cooking grease from a Burger King. He was to use the grease for his biofuel Wacky Races car. While I agree he should have been arrested for even going to a Burger King—I’m a Howard Dean-loving, latte-drinking, New York liberal*—he should have known better. Many fast food joints will gladly hand over their used grease for the greater good, else they’ll have to pay someone to truck it off to the landfill (or wherever used grease goes to die).
