In Ohio, romantic Kyle Stump, 23, painted: “Michelle Marry Me. I Love You” and a heart—Awwwww!—- in red letters on the side of a building in the city-owned shopping mall at Lake Sheffield, Ohio. His proposal covered 30 feet of wall space.
His girl friend Michelle Astorino still missed it until Stump took her to the building one night with a flashlight. She said “yes,” the fool. Then police arrested him based on a tip, and matched the handwriting on the wall to a form Stump had filled out in 2012.
Did you know they tried to catch Jack The Ripper the same way? But I digress.
Stump pleaded no contest to the misdemeanor charge of criminal mischief and was sentenced to 60 days in jail with a $500 fine. The jail term was suspended as was most of the fine, but Romeo will have to pay $332 to sandblast the wall clean, and has to perform 80 hours of community service.
“They don’t have to be so hard on me,” Stump complained to the media. If I were the judge, that comment would be enough to make me reinstate the jail time and the full fine.
He says the legal setback means he’ll have to buy an engagement ring on an installment plan. Did I already say “Awwww!”?
“We’ve basically just brushed it off and are excited about our engagement,” Michelle told “Inside Edition.” “It’s still a crime, we understand that, but, I mean, it’s not that serious.”
No, you moron, in fact defacing public property or any property is very serious, and it doesn’t matter if you’re defacing it with “Hitler Rocks!” or “Give Peace A Chance.” It’s destruction of property, wastes scarce public funds, shows disrespect to your neighbors and community, and proves your honey-bunny has the basic ethics comprehension of a terrier.
Well, at least it’s a good match..
Both of you are idiots.
Please don’t have kids.
