    A better description would be " a light-skinned male that looks like Sloth from the Goonies." Look at those set of eyes. On top of that a funky grill!!

    Um, it says absolutely nothing about a kitchen in the article...

    What was he doing shooting into someone's kitchen? Sounds like a bad man to me, interrupting someone's dinner.

    Thanks for giving me a laugh on my first day back on campus!

    well, he certainly doesn't LOOK suspect...

    on the other hand, if i see someone running around with a spare mouth floating in the air next to him, i'll be sure to call the cops as i'm running away.

    Yeah well lets just hope they pick up the one that actually committed the crime. This description leaves alot to be desired, and many many young males will definately fit the profile.
