WCW - Turn yourself in and nobody gets hurt

This week's Wild Card photo is something I got in the mail which amused me. Take a look.

Apparently the previous occupants of this house needed to renew their pistol permits. But that's not what caught my eye. Look at this:

I'm wondering how many calls they get from sending out these cards.
"Hello, this is the Sheriff's Office."
"Um, yes, I got a card in the mail that says you're going to arrest me?"
Sheriff's Office worker scrambles for a pen. "Can I have your name please?"
"Sure, it's Thiefy McThieverson."
"Hmm, yes, Mr. McThieverson, I see you're wanted for armed robbery. Where are you right now?"

And of course, if they know where to send the little postcard, why don't they just go arrest the guy?

So there's my W for the week - Warrant!


  1. Very nicely done! You would be surprised how many stupid people will call on the warrant thing. Many will voluntarily go down to the police station to clear things up. Ha!

  2. All we get for our previous owners is a bunch of Mission stuff - the owner was a Pastor so TONS of religious material still comes for them.

  3. WWWWWWWWWWWWwwwarrant! Bonus Points!!!

    Ummmm, yeah...that is rather interesting. I wonder, and you know there have to be some out there, how many idiots actually call in...

  4. I bet there are more idiots than you think that call in......
