Jailed man didn’t leave much behind

Going to jail’s no fun because of all the things you have to leave behind.

Jail workers said Earl Lee Vogt passes gas every time he gets a text message.

Does he pass gas every time he gets a text message?

A 29-year-old tattoo artist in Lake County California got around that by shoving a cell phone, MP3 player, headphones, marijuana, tobacco and $140 in cash in his rectum, according to an article on The Smoking Gun.

Corrections officers were led to Earl Lee Vogt’s cell by the smell of burning marijuana, which is still illegal in California jails.

Vogt, sentenced on a narcotics violation, appeared to be in discomfort when strip searched, but that may be because he’d just realized he’d forgotten to pack his flat screen.

Vogt denied being in pain but did admit, “My [bleep] is bleeding.”

Apparently, this sort of behavior is so common jail workers call it “keystering.” I thought it was spelled “keistering” but thankfully I’m no expert on this subject.

Well, there’s your problem. If he had a good Android smart phone, he wouldn’t have needed BOTH a cell phone and an MP3 player. (Wonder if he is a Green Bay fan?)

Maybe he was just trying to stretch it in preparation for Bubba.

Maybe he had a past of “hamstering.”

How’d you like to be a cellmate who finished off one of Mr. Vogt’s smokes just before he learned where it had been stashed?
