Nine Levels of Pickpocketing

 Here's a cool video on  how to be a pickpocket.  I trust you will only use it for good.


  1. Fascinating. I knew about quite a few of those, having watched "Casablanca" and Penn & Teller.

  2. Dare I say...some of the terms came back to me! This is excellent. (And no, I've never indulged, but know people who have :) What fun, Rob!

  3. R.T. Lawton was quite the expert in early pocket-picking. He wrote about the School of Bells in which French crooks practiced their sticky-finger trade.


Welcome. Please feel free to comment.

Our corporate secretary is notoriously lax when it comes to comments trapped in the spam folder. It may take Velma a few days to notice, usually after digging in a bottom drawer for a packet of seamed hose, a .38, her flask, or a cigarette.

She’s also sarcastically flip-lipped, but where else can a P.I. find a gal who can wield a candlestick phone, a typewriter, and a gat all at the same time? So bear with us, we value your comment. Once she finishes her Fatima Long Gold.
