Every line a new joy.

A 13 year old from Texas who stole his Dad's credit card and ordered two hookers from an escort agency, has today been convicted of fraud and given a three year community order.

Ralph Hardy, a 13 year old from Newark, Texas confessed to ordering an extra credit card from his father's existing credit card company, and took his friends on a $30,000 spending spree, culminating in playing "Halo" on an Xbox with a couple of hookers in a Texas motel.

The credit card company involved said it was regular practice to send extra credit cards out as long as all security questions are answered.

The escort girls who were released without charge, told the arresting officers something was up when the kids said they would rather play Xbox than get down to business.

Police said they were alerted to the motel by a concerned delivery clerk, whom after delivering supplies of Dr Pepper, Fritos and Oreos had been asked by the kids where they could score some chicks and were willing to pay. They explained they had just made a big score at a "World of Warcraft" tournament and wanted to get some relaxation. On noting the boys age the delivery clerk informed the authorities.

When police arrived at the motel they found $3,000 in cash, numerous electronic gadgets, an Xbox video console with numerous games, and the two local escort girls.

Ralph had reportedly told police that his father wouldn't mind, as it was his birthday last week and he had forgot to get him a present. The father, a lawyer said he had been too busy, but would take him on a surprise trip to Disneyland instead.

Asked why he ordered two escorts, Ralph said he thought it was the thing to do when you win a "World of Warcraft" tournament. They told the suspicious working girls they were people of restricted growth working with a traveling circus, and as State law does not allow those with disabilities to be discriminated against they had no right to refuse them.

The $1,000 a night girls sensing something up played "Halo" on the Xbox with the kids, instead of selling their sexual services.

Ralph's ambition is to one day become a politician. [link (http://www.money.co.uk/article/1000390-13-year-old-steals-dads-credit-card-to-buy-hookers.htm)]

Wow... heh.

15-05-2008, 00:18:43
I somehow have the feeling the kid wouldn't be satisfied with that surprise trip...

15-05-2008, 00:22:41
Am I understanding correctly that it is after the splurge that his dad decided he needed a surprise trip to disneyland?


15-05-2008, 00:51:50
Splurge, you say?

15-05-2008, 04:43:57

I had a friend in school named Ralph. Classic nerd archetype (well, we all were) until he spontaneously developed macho Italian guy muscles. Later he had laser eye surgery and didn't need the Hubble lens glasses.

15-05-2008, 17:01:28
Was his last name Macchio?

16-05-2008, 11:11:30
no, but that's not far off

16-05-2008, 11:32:06

And that worldnetdaily site looks just slightly less trustworthy than fox news.

I would have used the Air America link, but it was taking too long to load.

23-05-2008, 01:08:27
Who listens to Air America?

23-05-2008, 01:24:40
You do, assuredly.

Naw, there isn't a local affiliate.
