Steve Miller Band had it RIGHT – Take the Money and RUN!!!

Have you ever had an ATM fantasy?  You know the one – you go to your local ATM, put in your card and code, ask for $200, and for some reason the machine starts spitting out cash the way a toddler spits out creamed spinach.

Well, it seems as though a New Zealand couple had that fantasy come true…so to speak.  According to Fox News:

Friends say Leo Gao always dreamed of owning a fish-and-chips shop, and someday living the good life.  But someday came sooner than expected, courtesy of a New Zealand bank error that gave him a $6.1 million line of credit, instead of the $61,000 limit for which he’d applied.Now, the Korean national and his girlfriend, Cara Young, a New Zealander — who together ran a gas station in rural Rotorua — are the focus of an international manhunt after Gao withdrew an estimated $4 million and, together with Young, hit the road.

As soon as I read this story, I thought of the Steve Miller Band tune “Take the Money and Run” (cue music with a little help from Rock Band):

Everybody sing…

Go on…Take the money and run…Hoo, hoo, hoo!

Go on…Take the money and run…Hoo, hoo, hoo!
