Jeeze, a lot of people these days are real selfish with
their money. But not Ben Stein. Almost everyday he goes on
TV and gives everyday people just like you and me a chance
to take home some of his money. That's why it makes me so
mad when some people aren't willing to play by the rules.
They could have gone on Comedy Central and gotten a chance
to get Ben Steins money fair and square. But noooooo, they
had hold him up in his garage with a hand gun!
They took all his money and his watch and his briefcase. Ummm, people, the name
of the game is not "Win Ben Stein's Personal Possessions!" I bet they really
sucked at playing Trivial Pursuit as children. You know, I wouldn't be the
least bit surprised if Ben Stein didn't want to give people an opportunity to
win his money any more. I mean you give and give and give and people just want
to take and take and take.
Too bad he won't be able to bring charges against the guys who did it. There's
no way he could prove that he didn't want to give them that money-- not after
everyone in the world watched him give it away on national television over and
over again. Not to mention they fact that they didn't actually hurt him. Sure
they accosted him in his own garage and waved a gun in his face, but he could
have resisted if he wanted to.
And what did he expect? Walking around with $1,000 and his paycheck in
his wallet! I just hope he's learned his lesson the little whore....
