Listen and learn young loons, writing thousands of death threats and sending them to yourself is no way to go through life. A couple in Australia who worked in the health department sent themselves death threats to get indefinite time off work. While scoring paid leave they went on interstate trips and lived a carefree existence whilst their employer had the privilege of paying for it. The fake threats totalled over 80,000 and included bloodstained parcels, nasty letters and crude phone calls over a two year period. Some of the parcels contained stained children’s clothing and were sent to their kids at school. The health department even put them up in an apartment so they didn’t have to stay at their home. Unfortunately for the hubby and wife, the cops smelled a rat and came up with a sneaky plan to catch them out. They snuck into the couple’s apartment and marked a stack of letters and envelopes with a special invisible ink. Too easy. The next letter handed to police had them busted.

OK, note to self, when planning a daring children rescue attempt in Lebanon, make sure the father (who allegedly refuses to return them to Australia) doesn’t have access to the email account being used to arrange the kidnapping. Just saying 60 Minutes, just saying. The father, on reading the details of the attempt to snatch back his kids , notified authorities. Another fine mess. Now the distraught mother of the kids, Tara Brown (the presenter), the 60 Minutes crew and the professional kidnappers all face the wrath of the Lebanese government. Meanwhile, the children are safely back with the American born Lebanese father who is laying charges against the lot of them. The price for trying to cover this story ….. 20 years .

After continually getting cursed at by a parrot as she walked passed the house of her stepson, an 85 year old Indian woman did the only thing she thought right…..dobbed the feathery creature into police.

The woman believes her stepson trained the parrot to shout obscene words and phrases at only her , following a family dispute.
OK people, when giving a false name to police be really careful that the name you give doesn’t belong to a guy with a “breaching bail conditions” arrest warrant. Just saying. When a Kiwi driver was pulled over by the cops he decided to give a fake name to avoid being busted for driving while disqualified, unfortunately the name he gave was in the system and he was immediately thrown in jail. It was only while appearing in court under the other guys charges that police realized it wasn’t the right person.
