    What Player?

    This article doesn't state which player was secreted. Surely, this is important due to the eye watering difference between a first gen iPod and an iPod nano.

    having worked for a state corrections dept in my sordid past... I have stories....

    Like you know how your mother told you never to put money in your mouth cuz you don't know where it's been? She was entirely correct - had an inmate atm in one incident... dry-celled him after visitation one day due to some suspicious behavior.. he eventually shit two twenties and a ten dollar bill...

    Shampoo bottles, lighters, drugs, money... what folks will do doesn't amazed me anymore.... to my great disappointment . There are some things I'd rather be ignorant of, ya know?

          Reminds me of the tyke who went to the doctors with a sore bum. The doctor extracted 99 twenty pound notes from the patient's backside. To which the patient explained that was probably why he wasn't feeling too grand.

          Yes, I know, I'm getting it.

    How could he do that?

    How could he conceal the music player in his arse when his head was already up there?

    Time inside?

    "The thief was later found to have a "colourful" criminal record and done time inside."

    No, no. If he'd stolen a wristwatch he would have done time inside.

    Thats got to hurt...

    It does make me wonder though, how (un)stable would the battery have to be in one of these MP3 players for it to go into thermal runaway when heated up?

    When the cops confronted the thief...

    ...did they order, "Blow it out your ass?"

    This reminded me of the old one about the nurse who shoved a thermometer up between her legs and rectum.
