Plan 1.0

Strickland always wanted to be with a Jewish girl. All his friends told him that they were easy and would do anything—especially for a gentile.

Unfortunately, Strickland had no redeeming physical or social features so he could never get a date with anyone, much less a Jewish girl.

On his eighteenth birthday he decided to give himself a Jew girl as a gift and planned a kidnapping.
Strickland wasn’t much of a planner.

He drove around the west side of town until he recognized a Jewish girl from school. He put on an Obama mask and pulled up besides her on the street.

Pulling a cap pistol he rolled down the window and said, “Get in the car.”

“Hey, Strickland,” she laughed, recognizing his car. "What a cutup," and continued on her way to her date with a gentile boy from the school newspaper who had been having his way with her for months.
