this is really funny. but i heard the kids went to get gas then in the heat of the moment just grabbed a ton of ice cream.

doesn't seem like a very juvenile thing to do: plot to steal ice cream then not wear masks, wave to the cameras, and buy gas with a credit card for a car that kept its license plates on during the whole thing. sounds like alcohol to me, not stupidity.
