42. That's absolutely incorrect, in my state at least.

If the store staff sees you hide merchandise in your pocket, you will be charged with shoplifting, and since the statute defines it that way, you will more than likely be convicted. I don't know for sure, but that's probably why the charge is shoplifting and not "theft."

So, I suggest you check your state statutes before you put something in your pocket or up your ass just for the convenience, and end up with a full-body cavity search along with the embarrassment of arrest and the lifelong onus of a conviction.
