WTF..

..is that hideous thing tattooed on her chest?

On face value, they look more than a bit dodgy and certainly deserve a mention on "World's Dumbest Criminals"

How will she do this?

Is the waitress going to have to report the value of the meth on her income-tax forms?

Since it was turned over to the police, she could declare the value of it as a loss.

"a meth lab comprising a small torch, batteries and other items",

By that measure, my house is likely a gigantic meth lab, a biochemical plant and a nuclear research facility.

I'm now clearing all other items from my house, just to make sure I'm above suspicion

I read someone that the primary detection method that the cops use for finding meth labs is to turn up at the site of an explosion. Awil, allow me to second your icon!

That 3 pack of LED torches I bought from B&Q the other day, which came with 9 batteries, was just for personal use. Honest!

Why doesn't anyone believe me?

Because it's a ridiculous claim. Do you know how long it would take one person to smoke three LED torches?

You guys do know that in the US "torch" means something different than it does in the UK?

Oops, I'd forgotten flashlight. So what's torch mean in USian? Something like an electric paint-stripper?

I wonder what US kids would make of Jamie and his Magic Torch, the cartoon I watched when I was 5? I'm sure I don't remember any meth labs...

A torch is either the thing used in the Olympics or it's successor, powered by butane or similar.

Depending on the fuel source, they can be used for anything from cooking through welding or cutting metal.

Happened to me 15 years ago

In my building live some people who have special needs. Around 15 years ago one asked me for some help in doing something or other DIYish. I helped him out and thought nothing more of it.

At Christmas I found two Christmas cards in my mailbox. One said, "Thanks for your help this year. I'm giving you a little gift." The other card had two rocks of crack in it.

I of course threw them away and thought no more of it. I've dined out on the story many times, though.

Re: Happened to me 15 years ago

When I first move to North London I took my parents to a local restaurant recommended by friends. During the main course, the waiter asked if we wanted "some more cocaine", froze for a few seconds then stutteringly told us he meant "more wine". Since found out that it's common knowledge in the restaurant trade that during particularly busy periods some staff members cope by using coke or speed.

Re: Happened to me 15 years ago

So that's what happened to them! I meant to leave a couple of Werther's Originals, and in my crack-addled state I must have got mixed up. You should have seen the look on the face of the guy who paid a thick wad of used 20s for some boiled sweets, though - priceless.

No? Fair enough. I'll, er, get my coat.

"...the waiter asked if we wanted "some more cocaine""

"I'm fine for cake, Mrs. Doyle."

"Are you sure, Father, there's cocaine in it."

"There's WHAT?"

"Oh, no... not cocaine...what am I on about? No, I meant... what do you call them...raisins."

"[...] comprising a small torch, batteries and other items."

That's not a meth lab, that's my kitchen drawer. Either the police are keeping the good stuff a surprise for the trial, or they didn't find anything worth a damn and this is a poor attempt to sex it up for the press.

Police: "Look, you're facing a certain 15 years for running a crack lab or, tell us who you 're dealer is".

Now, now- mustn't forget the three batteries!

And a handsome young assistant to run down to the 7-11 for more batteries when needed.

I hear the lithium ones work the best.
