Little Houdini at the Local Waffle House

This is a REAL news story that took place in Atlanta earlier this week. Here's the link.

Now, I don't know about YOU, but if I were in charge of a prisoner whose nickname was "Little Houdini", I don't think I'd be leaving him ALONE in the back of the prison transport van while I stopped at the Waffle House to get some vittles.

Little Houdini has an unusual rap sheet.... he stole an 18 wheel Wal Mart truck to go visit his dyin' mother in the trailer park (no joke).... AND (another time) he stole Crystal Gayle's TOUR BUS to go see a NASCAR race.

I gotta tell ya.... I'm wondering how many country songs can you GET out of one story?!

The title of this post should be the title of the country song!

Oh my lord. At first I thought it was Josh Brolin....seems Waffle house is always a great place to stir up some trouble. :)

Wow. This guy seems terribly talented. I wish someone could have reigned his energy in when he was little so he would have gone down a different path. Although, I must say, the visit to his mother at the trailer park. Well, that is just delightful!

Suz, I KNOW! First Kid Rock gets arrested at a local Waffle House because someone "dissed" a member of his posse (I'll refrain from further commentary on THAT...) and now THIS.

Rebeckah, it almost brings a tear to your eye, doesn't it, girl? I tell ya.... I normally don't pull for the bad guys, but the fact that he stole a Wal Mart big rig to go see his Mama was very touching to me too. :)

Hey, he ain't hurting anyone. He's had a good reason for each of his escapades! :)
