    The men I mean, not the cheques.

    So I hope they didn't have to wait 3 weeks for the check to come..."stinky" might have had a harder time sitting up in that chair by then! LOL

    What some people won't do for attention...so what's the fine for wheeling a dead body around? Or would that be attempted forgery? Embezzlement of government fund? Hmmmm...bet they have their lodging paid for now!

    couldn't they have just gotten a fake ID and cashed the check? it probably would have drawn less attention, lol.

    They were the examples of the Reagan "Welfare Queen" recently brought back from the dead by the Republicans.

    Should things long dead be brought back to life?

    The trope never died.
