How to prevent a Diamond heist

found on Dump-a-day

If quills are good enough to protect a porcupine, I'm sure they're good enough to protect a teeny tiny little dog. Just hope she doesn't try to cuddle with you with that thing on.

When you've got to go on the go

I may complain about the lack of privacy in public washrooms, but at least in those cases there's a room. It's not right in the middle of the street. Can you imagine the traffic lights for this? Or the skid marks?
