Again, you’re under the impression that this kid could buy all of that junk food for one dollar, while today the prices are much higher. Instead, they kept said dollar and stole it all. Nowadays, they wouldn’t be able to pull that off, because there are “cameras everywhere.” Smart move, kid. Smart move.
Of course, technology is significantly more advanced these days. Social media exists and cameras are everywhere. But this is most likely a funny Twitter joke that pokes fun at the people who lament about the price of food in these modern times. We all sound like old farts now, don’t we? “Back in my day, milk cost two cents and you could buy a house for 10 dollars.”
