Remember Alice's restaurant?
« on: July 02, 2014, 10:21:45 PM »
Browsing the City of Oakland's website, as one often does in moments of boredom, I came across this chappie.
Most peculiar assortment of crimes.... could anyone from California shed some light on the last listed crime please?

I think by "recycling" they're referring to 'chopping' a car for parts. That would tie in with the grand theft (stealing the car) and conspiracy (most car thefts are handled by professional gangs of car thieves) charges.

Heh.  For the clueless:

https://en.wikipedia...Alice%27s_Restaurant



Okay, that's where I went when I saw the thread title. I just don't quite get how a crime spree ties back into the song.

...With circles and arrows and diagrams on the back perhaps??

Naturally. The beginning of the song has the narrator cleaning out Alice's Restaurant, and because the landfill is closed, they just dump it down a hill. So there you have the recycling reference from the OP.

Ah! Okay, that works. I haven't actually heard the song in years and didn't want to cheat with the video because I'm at work.

As the admin I have to set an example...bla bla bla... :D

"Work" sounds suspiciously like it may be manned by denizens of The Group W Bench

Ironic as it may seem, when all factors are taken into account - yes...we do, don't we? :-\ ;D :P
