Shocker: 9 Year Old Caught Stealing McCain Signs

The "shocker" in the headline is literal. The guy got sick of miscreants stealing his sign so he juiced it up with electricity.

The kids' father says the little scamp just grabbed it to "see how it was put together."

It's a sign. It's a stick with a fucking piece of cardboard stapled to it.

But this curious little Future Engineers of America Chapter President wanted to see how this gizmo called a "sign" worked.

That's the Obama Effect -- children taking great interest in educating themselves. Look at this budding young Nicolai Tesla, so curious about the complex aeronautics of a yard-sign.

Now that's he's figured out the inner workings of the staple, he's moving on fulfill Barack Obama's campaign pledge of building a car that runs on love.

Thanks to jenjis.

Vid: Here. You get to see the kid get shocked.

Yup, he does seem interested in seeing how the sign is put together -- he's already disassembled it. I'm sure he was going to tinker with it, to make it more aerodynamic. And maybe add a hemi, and perhaps a flash drive.

The kid conducted himself admirably, I think.
