If you try and purchase $2,200 worth of gift cards at a Safeway store and your cheque bounces what do you do? Apparently, if you are a middle aged woman with an SUV you smash into store and drive up and down the aisles. She was arrested at home. No word on whether she got her gift cards.
What’s the quickest way to make $250,000? Well, if you don’t mind losing a hand and foot you could always attempt an insurance scam. Just ask the Vietnamese guy who persuaded his friend to lob off her limbs. The man cut off his friend’s hand and foot and plonked her near a railway line before ringing an ambulance, in the hope of claiming medical insurance. Unfortunately for her, the ruse came undone when police became sus about the story and did some digging. The trick , it seems, is not to have a failing business. Now she is an unemployed, limbless pauper. Oh well.
Heavens to Murgatroyd. A British man was fined for carrying a heavy load. Seems he got overly zealous at a rice sale at a local shop and filled his car with 2,000 pounds (800kg) of grain. That would be 40 bags of 20kg rice. Hmm, the $400 fine would make that some very expensive rice.
A 4 year old Chinese kid spent a good hour with his head stuck in a L shaped pipe. Hmm, lets see the time line… about thirty minutes smashing into things before his parents found him , a short ride to the local fire station and then another 20 minutes patiently screaming while fireman removed it.
You know there is nothing more awks than having to be rescued by the US Coast Guard in your bubble…AGAIN. Come on dude, endurance running in your hydropod from Florida to the Bermuda Triangle is a pipe dream. Give up, it’s not going to happen, get a day job, find another hobby, try land. Naww, and you get a $40,000 fine. Life can be a bitch.
I hate to think what he said or did, but a woman’s wrath …
A Romanian woman was so pissed at her hubby for not buying her flowers on International Women’s Day, guess what she did loons? She ripped off his scrotum, that’s what. She told police she was fed up with being ignored by her lazy husband.“I told him he was not any kind of man and I grabbed his balls. It was not my fault that he pulled away, and that’s when it happened. I thought maybe that some ice would solve the problem”
Oh bless, the old “make my own license plate number” trick. A woman from New York thought she had successfully fooled the cops when she got out her colouring pens and whipped up a NY plate for her uninsured car. Unfortunately a sharp eyed office spied the ruse. Hmmm, I wonder if she will be making them where she’s going?
Banana man closed down a council meeting in Melbourne after he started handing out bananas. Evidently, Banana Man was protesting against the Mayor using a council vehicle to visit the Big Banana at Coffs Harbour during the Christmas break. In response the Mayor stopped the meeting and Banana Man split.
Naw, trying to smuggle alcohol into Saudi Arabia can be somewhat tricky, considering it is illegal. Get caught, that is a flogging. However, it doesn’t stop people trying. Authorities have released images of some of the more epic fails.
