the Great Gas Hose Heist

this is the Merrow corporate blog. Therefor the coverage of officers of the company is an appropriate and perhaps a requisite element of the blog.

Today our subject is none other than the eponymous Owen Merrow. His daily contributions to the company are many, and the hours he logs almost unmatched.

On Wednesday night he drove off from a gas station without first detaching the gas nozzle from his auto. The result has been captured in drawing and soon song, to be remembered for all time.

The epic almost ends with the pimply faced Cumberland farm employee running down the highway after his gas hose.

but Our story only begins there... as once word of the Great Gas Hose Heist leaked, it has become a twitter entry, a blog entry and the subject of a drawing contest.

As of this morning we're not quite sure why he tried to steal a gas hose from the pump ... but rest assured that with constant attention and relentless ribbing, we Will get to the bottom of it!

Question...I assume he had paid for the gas? Maybe he just thought for the money he deserved the hose too?

Sounds reasonable to me. LOL
