I Hope These Mississippi Men Haven't Bred

There are some amazingly brilliant criminals down in Mississippi. Actually, not so much.

Two men were recently arrested in Jackson for trying to pass off wood blocks as Toshiba laptops. They cleverly disguised the blocks with duct tape and carefully placed Toshiba stickers.

There aren't a lot of excuses for why these guys thought this scheme might work. The most believable excuse would be a lack of know-how. According to Wikipedia (spare me the hate mail), "...Mississippi students scored the lowest of any state on the National Assessments of Educational Progress in both math and science."

These bafoons should take a note from this guy:
