For a while there, I thought about getting a job as a Gas Hot Water Heater Inspector.
You see, I'd wait until just before sunrise, then dress in my camouflage INS suite, grab my .45 calibur snub-nosed Tommy gun, and bust into a house yelling, "Gimme your hot water heater, or else!!!" And if they answered, "Or else 'what'?" I'd arrest them for Resisting A Hot Water Heater Bust, plus, I'd tag their tank for a platform installation (which, of course, they'd have to pay.) Since I may do some 'damage' to the house, I'll have to find someone to 'fix' it up. (Maybe, uh nay, the X-guy ...)
