Well, that's a Princeton Man for you.

I'm confused - why is "setting a fire" in quotes in the headline? He succeeded, right?


#5

Texas Man: it's a thing.

Their admission standards must have gone way downhill.


#7

That's what I thought. No irony. Not a metaphor. Why the quotes?


#8

The wording was on one of the stories about it and I found it charming, like he'd just gotten confused about where the campsite was.


#9

You reminded me of one of my favorite Mr. Howell lines.


#10

Sounds like you haven't met many Princeton alums.


#11

A "gentleman", surely?


#12

A true gentleman.

Man charged after “setting a fire” in a Texas Walmart

From article:

Four people were injured Monday afternoon in Princeton after a man poured lighter fluid on stacks of clothes inside a Walmart and set them afire.

So... I was hoping that "setting a fire" was in quotes because what he really did was fire up his lighter while a buddy sang Freebird. But he actually set a fire.

No, the police posted it, like a "wanted" poster. I wonder who ratted him out. Maybe they got a gift certificate for cheap crap from China, lightly toasted.


#15

Obligatory:


#16

This far into the thread, and nobody's mentioned a fire sale?


#17

why did he do it?
