The Best Post Quote Ever: “a police spokesman said he could not confirm the nature of the food item being lovingly tended by the suspect”

From MPD:

“The Metropolitan Police Department seeks the public’s assistance in identifying a person of interest in reference to a Burglary II incident which occurred in the 1400 block of Irving Street, NW, on Friday, March 18, 2016, between 3:10 AM and 5:05 AM. The subject was captured by the establishment’s surveillance cameras.

Anyone who can identify these individuals or who has knowledge of this incident should take no action but call police at (202) 727-9099 or text your tip to the Department’s TEXT TIP LINE to 50411.”

The Washington Post adds some awesome commentary:

“The “person of interest” is seen strolling through a closed Five Guys last month flipping what appear in grainy security footage to be hamburger patties, though a police spokesman said he could not confirm the nature of the food item being lovingly tended by the suspect.”

    This story is making national news. I feel bad for the dude. More chance to get caught. He didn’t do anything harmful, just wanted a damn hamburger.

    McDonald’s is taking this viral campaign gritty reboot of the Hamburglar too far.

    This should be the first ever video caption contest.

    The guy seems to know his way around a grill, but I was raised in the firm belief that you flip a burger once and only once.

    It’s Dave Attell. Case closed.
