The 40-year-old…intern

The Associated Press is reporting that an intern with the U.S. National Archives stole 164 Civil War documents (including an announcement of President Lincoln’s death), which he subsequently put on Ebay. That’s weird.

But that’s not the weirdest part. You see, the thief is conspicuously reported as being a 40 year-old unpaid intern. The report neglects say whether or not he lives with his parents…

NOTE TO NATIONAL ARCHIVES STAFF: always be suspicious of a 40 year-old who wants to work for free.
