Now why didn't I think of this when I was broke? I cannot imagine!
This is almost as funny as the news story I heard about 16 years ago while traveling on the Long Island Expressway from Queens into Nassau County.
This guy was in a phone booth at Flushing Meadow Park (the site of the two World's Fairs) when he was approach by another guy with a big snapping turtle. The guy with the turtle taps on the door and when the caller opens it the turtle-man tells him to hand over his wallet or the turtle bites him. The turtle-man got fifty bucks!
