If You Cook Meth, Don't Wear a 'Breaking Bad' T-Shirt

 

 

Daniel Kowalski is not the one who knocks. But he is an idiot (allegedly).

The 21-year old was arrested near LaGrange, IL, and charged with “two counts of possession of a controlled substance, possession of methamphetamine manufacturing materials and possession of materials needed to produce methamphetamine,” according to the Chicago Tribune.

In other words, he’s accused of running a meth lab. That’s stupid, but we hear about idiots cooking meth every day. What makes Kowalski noteworthy is that when he was arrested, he was wearing a “Los Pollos Hermanos” t-shirt from Breaking Bad, a show that chronicles the manufacture and distribution of methamphetamine. Smart kid.

It doesn’t take a criminal mastermind to see that wearing a giant meth reference on your chest while working as a meth cook isn’t the best tactic for evading law enforcement. And what makes Kowalski’s behavior even more dumbfounding is the fact that he was previously arrested and placed on electronic monitoring in July after police found a suspected methamphetamine lab at his home. Self preservation is just not a priority for some people.

The threat of jail aside, there is another reason for not wearing a Breaking Bad shirt while cooking meth: It makes you look like a f*cking poser. Kowalski might as well have been wearing a One Direction t-shirt while attending the band's concert. You think that kind of over eagerness is going to impress Harry? Think again, idiot!

After reading about Kowalski, I’m left wondering if he actually watched the Breaking Bad finale. Things didn’t exactly end well for Walt and Jesse, so why would anyone follow in their footsteps? If you’re going to pick a TV show to emulate, why not Quantum Leap. I’d have a lot more respect for this guy if he had been arrested while trying to steal plutonium to put in his homemade time machine, provided he wasn’t wearing a Time Bandits shirt while he did it.
