Dumb Criminals: Thieves Call Game Stop Ahead Of Time To Make Sure Store Has "Call Of Duty" In Stock


Surveillance video showed the man arrive Wednesday morning about 10 a.m. to a Gamestop store in Madison in a Nissan Versa. The car circled the parking lot for more than an hour before the driver eventually worked his way close.

Then, police said, he did something odd. He called the store and told the clerk he needed games and a system for a gift but was on his way to work, so would need the order ready to pick up when he arrived.

Once the crook walks inside, he is seen on security video pulling a black semi-automatic handgun on the clerk before grabbing a bag full of his pre-ordered goodies, including an Xbox 1 and $200 worth of kid-friendly games to go with it, plus about $600 from the cash register.


Swedish Man Accidentally Reads His Own Obituary In The Newspaper

Sven-Olof Svensson, 81, from Jönköping was admitted to hospital on Christmas Eve feeling unwell. His older sister, who is 90, spoke with the doctor over the phone and got the impression that her brother had passed away.

She quickly began writing an obituary along with friend Lars Fältskog which was published in the the local Jönköpings-Posten newspaper on New Year's Eve.

However, Fältskog got a shock when he arrived at the hospital on January 3rd to collect his friend's personal items only to be told he was sitting up in bed and on the mend.

"You can see the humour in it. It's understandable to me that there may have been a mistake even if it was fatal in this case," a very much alive Sven-Olof Svensson told the Jönköpings-Posten.


Dumb Cops: Fired NY Officers Were Caught Having Sex In Posh Hamptons Home

While the 1 percent’s away, the cops will play.

Shocked cops in tiny East Hampton Village say they caught a couple of frisky fellow flatfoots trespassing in a cottage down the road from police headquarters — reportedly to have sex.

The two — she’s a 20-year-old part-time traffic-control officer, he’s a 31-year-old patrolman — were caught in a secluded, shingled hideaway, according to police in the scandalized station house.

The patrolman, who has not been named publicly, has been suspended with pay and relieved of his gun and badge, police said. He is believed to be out of the country.


Applicants Sought For Naked Sledding World Championships

Have you ever fancied getting all your kit off (well almost all your kit off) and hurtling down a hill on a toboggan watched by some 25,000 people?

No? Can’t say I blame you.

Yes? Well next month you have a chance to make your dream come true by taking part in what must be the most eccentric alternative winter olympics event ever devised – the Naked Sledding World Championship, now being hosted for the fifth time.

The event takes place - surprise, surprise – in Germany, a country famed for its love of all activities that involve FKK – Freikörperkultur (Free Body Culture, or plain nudity to you and me), and will be staged on Saturday February 15 on the slopes above the spa town of Braunlage in the picturesque Harz Mountains.

Dumb Criminals: Florida Man Smashes Printer After Wal*Mart Won't Let Him Return It


A Punta Gorda man went on violent spree after being told he couldn't return his printer at a Charlotte County Walmart.

On Tuesday, 24-year-old Jose Morales went to the Walmart in Deep Creek off Kings Highway and demanded the store take back his printer.

Store clerks said they couldn't offer him a refund because he didn't have a receipt and the purchase was made over three months ago.

Deputies say Morales then became irate and started cursing and smashing the printer on the floor before throwing it at the two clerks who ducked behind the counter.


PC Load Letter? What does that mean?

Dumb Criminals: Pennsylvania Man Charged With Selling Heroin At McDonald's

MURRYSVILLE, Pa. —An employee at McDonald’s on Route 22 in Murrysville has been charged with selling heroin out of the restaurant.

Theodore Levon Upshaw, 28, was arrested after the Allegheny County District Attorney’s Narcotics Enforcement Team used a confidential informant to buy heroin in the parking lot of the restaurant, according to spokesman Mike Manko.

Manko said the informant had previously made several heroin purchases inside the restaurant.

Records show that Upshaw was being held in the Westmoreland County Prison on $50,000 straight cash bond Thursday. He will face charges of possession of heroin, possession with intent to deliver and delivery of heroin, Manko said.


Yes, Sex Toys For Bronies Do Exist

To be sure, Pony Plugs are aimed for a niche market, but Reign says it's not as small as you might think. The AVN Adult Entertainment Expo this week in Las Vegas offers bronies some pony accessories for their perverse pleasures. The Internet is full of products, too.

"At places like Etsy.com, there are pony ears and noses and the whole to-do," she told HuffPost Weird News.

"I wanted to find my own way to tap into the brony market, and I think tails are it. Kinky is more normal now, and this is what people like."

Sexy? We say neigh. Still, "My Little Pony" has a following that fills convention centers, where bronies celebrate their love of Mrs. Cupcake, Twilight Sparkle, Princess Luna, and other four-legged friends.


And no, no picture is necessary.

80 Year Old Iranian Goes 60 Years Without Bathing, Named "World's Dirtiest"

“Amou” is an endearing word in Farsi used especially by kids for kind men to show their affection, and in this story our man is called just by that, Amou Haji.

Amou Haji, aged 80, who lives in Dejgah village in the southern Iranian province of Fars has not bathed for 60 years.

The last record of longest time going without showers belonged to a 66-year-old Indian man, Kailash Singh, who had not taken a bath over 38 years.

Not to our surprise, when we searched the reason behind Amou Haji’s way of life, we found out that he had gone through some emotional setbacks in his youth and from then on decided to live an isolated life.

He escaped from the hands of a few young men who offered him free shower, because he believes cleanliness brings him sickness.


Dumb Criminals: MA Car Thieves Foiled Because They Can't Drive Stick Shift

SPRINGFIELD — A delivery driver was robbed of a food order on Dawes Street on Tuesday night and would have lost his car as well, but none of the three robbers knew how to drive a manual transmission, police said.

The delivery driver told police he had stopped at about 10:15 p.m. to deliver an order on Dawes Street and called the number on the order to say he had arrived. Moments later, he was rushed by three men, one of whom had a knife.

They demanded the food and his car keys, said Sgt. John Delaney, aide to Police Commissioner William Fitchet.

“The trio jumped into his car and attempted to steal it, but not one of them knew how to drive a stick-shift car,” he said.
