Irony is a “Life is Pain” tattoo

Polizeihauptwachtmeister, round up the usual suspects for questioning!

Right away, lieutenant! Of course, six of them got away while you were saying Polizeihauptwachtmeister, but…

Never mind that, Polizeihauptwachtmeister! This man here! Have you sentenced him yet?

Well, no, lieutenant. He’s just a suspect. He’s innocent until proven guilty.

You have not read the full penal code, have you, Polizeihauptwachtmeister?

Um, not the FULL code, lieutenant.

Page 1,264, paragraph six. “If some dumkaupf has a pineapple handgrenade tattooed on his neck and the message “Life is Pain” tattooed above his ear, he goes directly to jail.”

Very good, lieutenant. And the exact charge, just for the paperwork?

Do I need to tell you everything, Polizeihauptwachtmeister? The charge is having really stupid tattoos!

“Life is Pain”?

Well, it certainly is painful looking at him.
