Now loons, I don’t want you getting any ideas but a South Korean guy who ran a second hand shoe business has been caught stealing expensive shoes from funeral homes. In Korea it is tradition to remove your shoes before going indoors so what better place to get decent shoes than from people paying their respects to the dead. The man, only known as Park, is alleged to have stolen some 1200 pairs of shoes. All he did was enter the mourning room pay his respects and then don on someone else’s shoes when he departed. Brilliant. When police raided his home there they all were in shoe size order ready for resale.
