Rules exist for a reason, right? Well… Yes. Most of the time, anyway. Some people find rules quite silly, though. So it’s not at all surprising to come across wise guys like the ones below who’ve found a loophole and dared to exploit it. They’re simply genius, aren’t they? So much cleverer than the rest of us rule-abiding regular people.
