A Plague of Pickpockets

The Puzzler

RAY: Here's what happens. You see a sign that says, 'Beware of the pickpockets.'

TOM: And you immediately reach for your wallet!

RAY: You reach for the most valuable thing you have, whether it's your wallet, your passport, your Rolex watch, to reassure yourself that it hasn't already been taken.

TOM: And the pickpockets know exactly which pocket to go to.

RAY: They hang out by the signs. Exactly right. It seemed like a good idea at the time. But it didn't work. Do we have a winner?

TOM: We certainly do. Our winner this week is Jay Macro from San Juan Capistrano, California!
