Some thieves steal money, or credit cards, or cars. But the classy thief steals cognac.
Or at least that’s what I like to imagine happened in Dundalk last weekend, when an enterprising burglar used a stolen truck to filch 2,142 cases (!) of cognac. (Cue “Pass the Courvoisier.”) Assuming each case included 12 bottles and each bottle contained 750 ml, that amounts to 19,278,000 ml, or more than 5,000 gallons, of the fancy liquor.
Now, I know that the thief probably had re-sale in mind; god knows, I hope no one intends to keep that much alcohol on hand for personal consumption. But is it so wrong to daydream about Baltimore’s #1 cognac fan chuckling to himself and planning an excellent party.
