Paul Bruneau of Portland, Maine may be nothing less than a superstar of the id. He has been accused of not only breaking into the Portland Lobster Company and stuffing his pockets with cash, but also eating “the better part of 11 prepared lobsters worth about $300” and washing them down with white wine (a fine choice). Subsequently falling asleep on a bench wasn’t necessarily the brightest move, but you could hardly blame the man if he had just eaten 11 lobsters plus white wine, to say nothing of the exertion that presumably goes into breaking into a restaurant.
Paul Bruneau, if found guilty, you deserve some jail time. But you also deserve a salute. Here’s to your stomach, unchained by conventional boundaries, anti-theft devices, or the force of law.
