Self-selection for Darwin awards

The LA Times is a regular stop for me, in large part for the peek into the bizarro state of life on the goofy coast. My latest little jewel is a story about a cholo who, in effect, had tattooed on his chest a confession to a murder.
Inked on the pudgy chest of a young Pico Rivera gangster who had been picked up and released on a minor offense was the scene of a 2004 liquor store slaying that had stumped Lloyd for more than four years.

Read it all here. The tat was executed in such detail that the laws could establish that the cholo had committed the murder in question. If the mexicano imports are taking the criminal jobs that Americans didn't want, they need to study the Sicilian traditions about silence. La Eme, the Mexican Mafia, had its constitution posted on line, in effect admitting to conspiracy to commit crimes. Never catch the real Mafia in such arrant stupidity.

I can't add anything except to say the fool will always have a reminder why he is rotting away in prison. Pendejo!!!!!

Saw a NEAT idea on Thursday's episode of "Bones". A woman had tattooed across her chest "Do Not Resuscitate"! How novel is that! If I were ever inclined to get a tattoo, that would be the one. Loud and clear!

Sugar, never saw that show, but it does make sense, eh? Were I a gangbanger, and inclined toward body art, and leaning toward the macho, side of reckless abandon in things less than legal, I would think that "EXIT ONLY" on the butt cheeks would be a fitting tat.
