Out of the Mouths of Babes

Have you seen this story? Brooklyn D.A.: Man Impersonates Dead Mother to Collect $115,000 in Social Security, Rent Subsidies

Our son was watching the news with me Wednesday night. The minute the story started and he heard what Thomas Prusik-Parkin allegedly did, he said this, and I'm quoting here:
Son: "That sounds like something dad would do".

Me: Speechless.
What could I say?

The kid was right.

Our son then went on to tell me how his dad still has the old lady wig he acquired for a Halloween costume 10 years ago in a dresser drawer.

I just have one question though, how did Thomas Prusik-Parkin cover his blues patch with make-up?

well, he must have learned about Derma blend, the make up that covers/hides everything!

Dan River Mama said...

Well, the guy is for sure a few bricks shy of a full load. But your part of the story was funny. Thanks for the laugh!

blueviolet said...

Yeah, how DID he cover that up???

Lin said...

Ouch. Out of the mouths of babes. How do people think of this stuff???!

Herrad said...

Blimey what a story!

@ Stephany, Blue Violet - Either that or he went real elaborate and had one of those molded faces that he put on.

@ Dan River Mama - Most definitely.

@ Lin - I have no idea, but then you wouldn't believe some of the stuff my ex-husband scammed. He has scammed theatre tickets, concert tickets, products, discounted hotel rooms (with a discount he was not entitled to).

@ Herrad - Exactly!

I'll bet his mother would be so proud. There's a scammer around every corner these days. What a shame.

Have a terrific day Lola. :)

What thick make up would cover that patch up?? I had to chuckle about what your son said. They think of the funniest things sometimes.
