    Needs a nighttime visit from the Balaclava Squad.
    A common mistake made when trying to come up with a totally foolproof design is to completely underestimate the innate ingenuity of fools.


    The last thing I want to do is hurt you but it's still there on my list of options, so are you coming quietly.........?

    You can go to jail there for an offensive T-shirt?
