    SOME may call it poetic justice, harsh though it may seem.

    A snatch thief running away from his victim was killed in a hit-and-run accident along Jalan Seri Kembangan yesterday morning.

    The 23-year-old man, whose identity has been withheld, had dashed across the road after snatching a waist-pouch from a hawker about 12.30am.

    A police spokesman said the victim, Kuan Yoke Wang, 39, his wife and nine-year-old daughter were closing up for the night at their roadside noodle stall.

    He said the snatch thief approached Kuan, a polio victim, on the pretext of asking him whether his food stall was still open for business.

    "We believe the snatch thief chose Kuan because Kuan had polio and walked with some difficulty. He grabbed a waist-pouch Kuan was carrying in his hand, thinking it contained Kuan's takings for the night.

    When a man gets older, say, 35 or so, he can experience a problem keeping his, uh, noodle running. Having to 're-start' the thing usually requires time, or a little blue pill.

    I spent a lot of time in Malaysia. Noodle Stalls (Hawker Stands) are areas where you can go and they have like 50 or 100 different stands offering all kinds of food. It is a REALLY cheap way to eat. You go to each stand, get what you want and then grab a table in the common area.

    Exactly. and they are open 24 hours in downtown areas. The food is good and cheap. The large Prawns will cost you $10 USD each in a nice restaurant. In a hawker stand you can get 3 for a $1.

    Yeah, I found the same thing in Subic City and Bario Barretto in the Phillipines. Great food, really cheap.

    I saw one darwin award where a guy got hit by a bus while trying to get away after stealing money from a church's collection plate. Karma indeed.
