A 30-year-old unemployed man apparently decided to be an ice cream truck driver for the night after he stole a pink and white ice cream truck in Okaloosa, Florida early Friday morning. William Grappy, a California man whose current address is listed in Tampa, opened the unlocked ice cream truck shortly after midnight and found the keys inside, according to a press release from the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office. The truck owner’s girlfriend saw Grappy drive off in the vehicle and followed him. Grappy ditched the truck and ran away. Okaloosa County sheriff’s deputies found Grappy, who they said apologized for “being an idiot.” Grappy was charged with burglary, grand theft of a motor vehicle, and possession of marijuana. (

Thwite (thWITE)
Verb (transitive):
-To cut or clip with a knife; to whittle.

From Middle English whyttel, variant of thwitel, diminutive ; from Old English thwitan, to cut ; from Indo-European base an unverified form twei-, to strike, cut.
Also related: thwaite (n.) "cleared land," 1620s, from Old Norse or Old Danish þveit "a clearing, meadow, paddock," literally "a cutting, cut-piece" (related to Old English þwitan "to cut, cut off;" see whittle).

Used in a sentence:
“And al thys hous of whiche I rede
Was made of twigges, salwe, rede
And green eke, and somme weren white,
Swiche as men to these cages thwite,
Or maken of these panyers,
Or elles hattes or dossers;
That for the swough and for the twygges,
This house was also ful of gygges,
And al so ful eke of chirkynges…”
-Geoffrey Chaucer - The House Of Fame

Or perhaps...

"Don't MAKE me thwite you!"

Police said a man crashed his car into a North Carolina cell phone store after demanding that workers help fix his phone. 74-year-old Charles Michael Hager faces six counts of assault with a deadly weapon and one count of injury to real property. Police said Hager went to a Verizon store in Raleigh to get help with his cell phone. But the store had closed for the night, so he drove through the front door. There were six employees inside and none of them were hurt. Authorities were called to the scene at about 9:00 p.m., an hour after closing “He said, ‘My damn phone’s not working. I need help. Open the damn door,’” a 9-1-1 caller said. “He got in his car and just drove right in the damn door. Now he’s pretty calm.” Hager was jailed under a $7,500 bond and has court planned in September. (
MOMENT OF DUH:By (Find Funding For College)
Cops said a California teen broke into a home through an open window this week — to ask residents if he could use their Wi-Fi. Police said the Palo Alto couple, who are in their 60s, woke up around 12:30 a.m. to see the stranger standing in their bedroom. Instead of ransacking the joint, the intruder, a 17-year-old boy wearing a T-shirt around his face, asked the couple if he could hop on their Wi-Fi network. But the homeowner bolted out of bed and pushed the wannabe web-crawler outside. Cops quickly arrested the teen, whose name wasn’t released because he’s a juvenile, and charged him residential burglary, a felony, as well as prowling and providing false information to an officer — both misdemeanors.
