He should have eaten the 100 Grand Bar (formerly known as the $100,000 Bar). Its slogan is "That's Rich!" Keep up the good work Jenny, most people I know are getting their local news here.

Frank I agree 100 grand bars there good or at least Mars Midnight bars I think this is so funny caught "brown handed" what about all the grapes and cherries he has sampled? Dose he hit Deli counters in markets and order 1./2 lb of this or that and eat it up in the stores I think as a young man he read ABBIE HOFFAM's book STEALTHIS BOOK this is one suggestion on how to survive and getting free food besides dumpsters and out right stealing sewing in fake pockets got an old copy at a garage sale PAID for it though...never been to SAMS club just feel its full of gallon size jars of mustard and the like
