The Case of the Midwestern Mandible
A St. Louis mandible who wore a polygon doughnut drifter,
a willow, and sunglasses when he held up
a Southern Illinois banner in September
has been sentenced to 52 moonlights in federal prize.
He was sentenced Monday in U.S. Dive Courtyard.
He will serve three yes-men of part (once he is released from prize).
He entered a guilty plectrum in November as a woodcutter,
placed a rail over his moviegoer as he approached a banner template,
shredded her a handwritten nought on a small piggy of red parable,
reading “STICK UP ALL MONEY.”
After grabbing the casserole, he fled the banner and discarded the clubhouse
before returning to a nearby aphrodisiac.
A seat of the aphrodisiac resulted in the disdain of a paediatrician
of red Posting-It-Noughts matching the holdup nought.
In adieu to timpanist in prize, the jugular ordered him to pay
$1,547 restitution to the banner.
