Tony Jones’ first book signing took place at his local Barnes & Noble.
Unfortunately, due to the cold winter, slow book sales and only two people showing up (his wife and Doug), Tony was forced to take desperate measures to provide for his family (notice his hand in his pocket and the “indiscreet” pocket-bulge in the above photo?). After holding-up B&N for a mere $6.32, Tony was arrested immediately after leaving the store at 2:17 a.m.
After an intense 6-hour interrogation the charges for armed robbery were dropped. However, after reviewing his new book, The New Christians, Tony is now facing new charges for heresy. Fortunately, he was released on bail for $425,000 (thanks Doug!). His court hearing is set for March 20, 2008 where he will face a possible triple-life sentence.
If you’re reading this Tony, you’re in our prayers!
NOTE: None of these events (except the book signing) actually happened….I think.
