Guffawed aloud at this comment to a news story about a 70-year-old woman holding at gunpoint the man who broke into her house after he had wrecked his car in front of a fire station:* "He could have been fleeing and alluding."
...Precisely what his allusions could have been to, we are not told; perhaps eluding. Or evading, even. Maybe fleeing from justice.
I'm pleased people express themselves but y'sit down in front of a machine connected to the fattest pipeline of useful information in the history of the world and pull a howler like that, somebody's gonna make mock. Might as well be me.
H/T to Kevin at The Smallest Minority for the story.
* Sumdood may have been involved. I can't say for certain but the case does have the earmarks of a Sumdood caper. The characteristically unfocused chaos and inept criminality, for instance.
