Not often you get to read one like this: “WA man sentenced for theft of 93 pounds of women’s undergarments


No, seriously, what the hell am I supposed to do with that?

A man who pleaded guilty to stealing 93 pounds of women’s undergarments in Pullman has been given a 45-day sentence.

Garth Flaherty, 24, may serve 30 days of his term in community service under the sentence he was given Friday in Whitman County Superior Court.

He pleaded guilty in an agreement with prosecutors after being charged with first-degree theft and burglary in the stealing of 1,613 pairs of panties, bras and other women’s underwear from laundry rooms.

Okay, I admit, a couple of obscure jokes come to mind, but one actually qualifies as a cliché, and who here would understand a crack about George, the news agent on the corner?
