Terribly Misunderstood

MORELIA, Mexico (AP)

Call it the case of the dead cells - both telephones and the ones in the brain. Employees at a Telefonica Movistar cell-phone store in Morelia, Mexico say they arrived Tuesday morning to find that the store had been broken into.

An examination of the shop revealed the only items missing were hollow replica phones for display that are completely useless for making calls.

Employees say the clueless thieves overlooked real cell phones and cash in another part of the shop.

Store owners nonetheless reported the theft to local police, who are investigating.

I can just imagine the conversation these guys had in the getaway car moments after the crime of the century:

Lupe (Driver): “Hehehe…oh, man! That was so easy, dude. I can’t believe those guys were stupid enough to leave everything right in the freakin’ window! What a bunch of morons.”

Carlos (Passenger seat): “Yeah, well. I figure we’ve made ourselves a cool five grand tonight, my man. It’s like Christmas in July, bay-bee! Like taking candy from a baby…”

Miguel (Back seat w/ loot): “It’s weird, though. The stash seems kinda light for like, 30 phones, ya know? You don’t think maybe these phones are missing the batteries, do ya? ‘Cause I don’t wanna have to pay for no stinkin’ batteries, man. It’ll really put a dent in my take, ya know?”

Carlos: “Nah. No worries, amigo. They make these babies so lightweight nowadays, it’s like you’re carrying nothin’ at all.”

Lupe: “Hey, I’m gettin’ hungry. Why don’t you reach in dat bag and call in for a couple o’ pizzas? They’re on me. I’m feelin’ generous. Can you hear me now?”

And they laugh….and laugh.
