Are they the only ones who even see irony anymore?

Today’s silliness brought to you by the word copper.

Idiots are stealing copper ,while coppers try to catch them.

For that first link, you can personify the wire to get:

You’ll never get me!
— copper

Oh, and it costs $0.013 to make a copper. Sell! Sell! Sure, Enron took down your financial future, but it’s back — this time as pocket change! You can make a 30% return each time you get change back!

Update: The day after I post this, there is a local story about copper theft — this time, from children.

Further update: The problem is not limited to the USA…
