An ACLU spokesperson said today the organization plans to sue artificial hip manufacturer Flexton, LLC on behalf of 71 year old Huey Beedlecorn, a serial cat burglar who was captured by police around 3:00am Monday while allegedly trying to burglarize a west side home.
"Because of his squeaky artificial hip, our client keeps getting caught in the act and is having a terrible time trying to make a living. We believe Flexton's product is defective and that the company is responsible for Huey's plight," said ACLU attorney Petal O' Gummton
Gummton added that, although he claims to have burglarized thousands of homes over more than 50 years, Beedlecorn had never been arrested until after receiving his new hip.
"He's just trying to make ends meet."
