                         He also ordered himself a nice pizza and ate it in-store, and he even brought a pet goat with
                         him as he strolled through the iPods on display.

                         Nothing seemed to get him kicked out. A video of all his stunts (four in total) can be found

                         Now, you might imagine that a comedian will get away with pulling something like that
                         simply because it's obvious he's doing some sort of a gig.
