Take the Gun AND the Coe-nnoli*

Only in Oklahoma. I'll say that again, because it bears repeating: Only in Oklahoma. First  Hillbilly Handfishin' and now this. Sigh. Take my state, please...

From this story in the Oklahoman

A self-proclaimed “redneck” stole a David Allan Coe country music album and cash from a CD Warehouse store in Oklahoma City last week, according to a police report released today.
The man walked into the store at 4001 N Pennsylvania Ave. about 4:20 p.m. Thursday and asked a clerk if he knew where the David Allan Coe CD was, an officer wrote in the report. The robber followed the clerk to a shelf, the clerk handed him the CD and they walked to a register.

The robber pulled out a chrome semi-automatic pistol and demanded money from the clerk, according to the report. After the clerk gave him the contents of the cash drawer, the robber said, “I'll take this (CD) too. I'm kind of a redneck.”

The robber made the clerk get on the floor, then walked out of the store and got into an older model cream-colored Lincoln car with a spare tire on the trunk, the officer wrote. The clerk and a witness described the robber as a white man in his mid-40s who is about 6 feet 1 inch tall, weighs about 220 pounds and has shaggy light brown hair and a full beard. He was wearing a camouflage jacket with the sleeves rolled up and blue jeans.

Any commentary from me would be completely superfluous. This one stands on its own...merits?
