First Xbox thief charged

You bloody great pillock

A twenty year old unemployed man by the name of Jomar Allen has gained the unenviable reputation of being the first man in Europe to be accused of attempting to steal an Xbox, achieving the feat within minutes of the console's launch. A report from Reuters suggests that the man was apprehended and charged shortly after midnight on Thursday morning as the Xbox first went on sale in Oxford Street, London. No doubt he was easy to catch as he hobbled down the road straining under the load. Ok, sorry, that's the last joke we'll make about the size of the Xbox. Honest, guv.
