The Burglary Blues

Someone tried, tried mind you, to rob E&L Barbeque this week in a rather humorous fashion:

E&L posted these videos and the following message on its Facebook page:

E&L BarBQue was robbed last night at midnight by this amateur! So far, these are the best pictures we have. We will be searching through more security footage to see if we can get a better one.

The video is actually hysterical 😂

He fell through multiple areas of our ceiling walking around up there, crawled around on the floor like he was in Mission Impossible and EVEN cooked himself DINNER!

He tried to bust our security monitor, but wasn't smart enough to bust the hard drive where all the evidence is stored.

This is not the model you want to follow if you want to successfully rob a business!

Help us find this guy!

The best part of this crime happening was learning that E&L is white-owned. Who knew?!

Kingfish said...

Clearly a case of cultural appropriation. What are we going to do about it? Something done got to be did.

When did E&L become white owned?

Anonymous said...

The taste and quality of food has declined tremendously since “they” acquired ownership. That’s probably why this fella took it upon himself to cook it the right way. Between Gator’s, Sylvester’s, Ray’s, and convenient store BBQ pits around Jackson, E&L might as well lock the door or let this fella buy them out.

Well, her husband is black, so it's half-black. But who cares, it's good!

When will you people stop saying 'convenient' store?

Mr. Mickens; To your outlandish point...I don't have any issue buying what I need if it's in an establishment owned by a black person; however, I am not going deep into the hood in search of my purchases.

I get my tailoring done by a Chinese woman. I go to JCP at Dogwood and rarely see a white clerk and don't know who owns the place.

I go to places like Walgreens, the gas station and the paint store but have never thought about who might actually own those places. I shop at Lowes, Home Depot and Wal Mart too but the owners don't live anywhere around here.

I rarely have to go to a 'shoe cobbler' any more but when I do, it's owned by a black guy and is on 51 in Ridgeland.

A Chinese woman checks my vision every other year and probably has half-interest (at least) in the frame shop that's attached.

I bought my last three cars from a guy named Dynamite at Herrin-Gear. I'll let you guess Dynamite's race. I always ask for him by name.

Other than the food purchases you mention, I'm not sure what all else I buy on a regular basis besides what I listed.

If I needed a Zoot Suit I'd probably drive up to Canton where there are plenty displayed in the windows.

Tell me what business you own and I might swing by.

BBQ in Jackson is disappointing to say the least. If there were more competition there might be a really first class place to enjoy BBQ and entertainment, like Red Hot and Blues tried years ago. Maybe a good BBQ contest held each year would help. This guy could enter and maybe find his true calling in life. It sure ain't burglary.

It is hard to find high quality BBQ in Jackson or at least I don't where to find it. I sometimes make the short drive to Louise's Pit BBQ in Crystal Springs. No idea who owns it and don't care. Their meat is best when I see the smoke boiling out of the chimney so I know it's fresh off the fire.

Sylvester's chicken and ribs on HW 18 near Raymond are pretty good although a little sweet to my taste, and the smoked steaks at Wynndale Steakhouse on Terry Road are good if you like the taste of hickory smoked meat.

Damn, now I'm hungry.

We not going to talk about the nice lady with the stolen gun, accidentally shooting someone?

I'm having a colonoscopy done & haven't eaten solid food in two days. Have mercy!

Sweet Daddys is about the best even if it's in the convenience stores. The receipe is about the same as it was when Sweet Daddy did the cooking on the pit outside the gas station at the corner of I55 and Northside. Canton has acouple of joints worth trying too.

Burglary, robbery, what's the difference....

Ophelia said...

Moral of this story: give a man a plate of barbecue and he will eat for a day. Teach same dude to plop down through a restaurant roof and...well, he still only gets one meal...maybe he needs to refine his burglarizing skills.

One burglarizes a building or dwelling.
one robs a person.

robbery generally gets harsher punishment.

Everyone needs a zoot suit. Everyone.

D & D BBQ was my south Jackson fave. The first time I stepped in, a hush fell across the room. I saw the civil rights memorabilia, the stack of Jackson Advocates, and the fact I was the Only Whitey.

I learned 2 important lessons there:
1. "Pan trout" is not cooked in a pan, nor is it trout; and
2. get the ribs.

That is all.

Sonny's BBQ with two locations on 80 can't be beat. But it's white owned. They serve beer too and most don't.

Anonymous said...

Sonny's, like Crechale's, is slap dab in the middle of the 80-Hood but has excellent BBQ ribs and chicken. Just don't get so full you can't run through the parking lot to your truck.

Anonymous said...

Sonny's closed their "80-Hood" location several years ago. I assume you don't go down there much 7:55 a.m.

Sorry to hear that, 7:45. I enjoyed Sonnys as did thousands of others, especially travelers and conventioneers staying at the Old Holiday Inn South for the past fifty years. Shit happens. Times change. Hoods run people off. Thanks again.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
