What a Way to Make a Living

Oh man, copper thieves are dumb. This guy was caught, naked and smoldering at the scene of his brilliant caper. He lived, that's why I used his image. There are plenty of them that didn't make it at the link, though.

I can see being an outlaw. I can see the attraction of a huge payday for not much effort. But these copper snatchers have got the formula exactly backwards. They could make much more money putting copper in. But no, they risk their lives, do hard physical labor, and get paid not all that much for their effort.

At least they're not politicians.
