Big Break In Hotel Prankster Case?

You may recall the story from a earlier in the summer about the Holiday Inn Express in Conway, in which a prankster contacted the desk, posing as a representative of the company that installed the hotel’s sprinkler system, and goaded the clerk into doing $50,000 damage to the property.

There’s big breaking news on that case today as The Smoking Gun unveils the results of their own investigation into the perpetrators of that and similar pranks, revealing them to be the work of a bunch of maladjusted and underemployed computer nerds in Canada, Texas and elsewhere.

Oh, I know, I’m just as shocked as you are. I would have sworn they would trace this scheme back to a suave and sophisticated “Oceans 11”-style team of international criminals.

    Dude. Come on. Pat Lynch had this 2 days ago. PAT LYNCH.

    At least you live up to your billing. There is something to be said for that.

    Oh, come now, Br549. We both posted on it yesterday afternoon, shortly after the TSG report went up. But now that I think about it, that doesn’t make me feel any better, as it still entails a comparison to Pat Lynch. PAT LYNCH.

    How very sad you’ve made me.

    Actually, it does kinda’ lift my spirits. It is good to be disdained, and twice as good when it happens in the Arkansas Project!

    Thanks for spelling my name right!
    Pat
