A couple years ago, some punk kid crawled into my car through the open sun-roof and stole a case full of CDs. It had at least 24 CDs in it. Each containing approximately 12 songs? Does that mean I could have sued him for 23.28 million? Damn!

In all honesty, he did get caught and worked it off, and I did eventually receive a check for about $100.00. The RIAA needs to piss off with these ridiculous claims.
