Someone Stole A House in Jakarta
‘Someone stole a house in Jakarta yesterday!’ he said.
Don’t you see that this is funny?
If you steal something, you take it away. How could someone steal a house?

Read the sentences below, and try to see the differences:
• Burglars burgle houses. So, we say ‘Someone burgled a house yesterday.’
• Robbers rob banks. A man in a mask and black clothes robbed a bank with a semi-automatic pistol this morning.
• And thieves steal things from people. The thieves were dressed in military outfits, and were well-armed.
