We’re shortening up our week for the roundup, so this will be our last until Friday. Until then, we’ve got a carjacker armed with a pacifier and an driver armed with, oh, so much much more. Plus why “Rae Carruth” is banned from Pakistani text messages, another theft of large lawn art, and the trifecta of botched shoplifting. It’s the happy hour law review for Tuesday, November 22, 2011.

2We’ve reported on thefts of 9-foot stuffed bears, ten-foot fiberglass giraffes, and a 70-pound fiberglass rooster. This time it’s a thirty-foot inflatable bottle of Bud Light. | BayNews9

5Don’t drive drunk—or don’t drive around at all, actually. When you are loaded up with 5,000 rounds of amunition. And six handguns. And two swords. And a hatchet. And several twelve-inch knives. | The Wichita Eagle
