A 9-year-old Ukrainian boy spent nearly $4,000 on candy in several days, the money coming from his parents' savings hidden in a couch.

The Ukrainian unit of currency is the Hyena? You learn something new every day.

What a thoughtful child: tipping the guy who helped him convert the money. Sweet!

You are so grounded, Mister.

The parents are lucky he found this when he was only 9. Three years later the whole wad would have been spent on hookers.

So, he took from those who have and gave to those who have not. What's wrong with that?

Ali, we aim for "funny" here more than "bitter."


padraig you many want to rethink putting the words 'wad' and 'hooker' in the same sentence.

I guess Combination Couches haven caught on yet over there.

Geez cindy, ain'tcha never seen a diablo entendered?

Padraig, that's what we're aiming for? Jeez, I'm gonna have to lighten up, I guess.
