Chicken Kitty Shakes
The world we live in keeps getting stranger and stranger.
In Brisbane, Australia, two crooks named Peter Welsh and Dwayne Doolan were busted after they tried to tunnel into a jewelry store and mistakenly ended up in a Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant. They held up the customers and escaped with just over $2500, but were picked up a short time later.
The funny thing is that this wasn’t the first time the pair tried to break into this particular jewelry store. On one occasion, they tossed spark plugs at the store’s windows in the hopes of breaking them. I’m still not sure how that was supposed to work.
And on another occasion, they mistakenly broke into an animal welfare shop and left with only $50 they found in a collection plate.
I think it’s time these guys found a different profession. Fortunately, they will have plenty of time to think about it in jail.
Speaking of jail, a funny thing happened at the Arapiraca prison in northeast Brazil. On New Year‘s Day, guards outside the prison gate noticed a white cat trying to enter the grounds. A closer look revealed that this was no ordinary cat, though.
Taped to the cat’s body was a grab bag of tools perfectly suited to a prison break. Included were a saw, a mobile phone, drills, a memory card, batteries, an earphone and even a phone charger!
Local police are investigating and consider all 263 of the prison inmates to be suspects in the feline-centered plot. And a prison spokesperson put the whole thing in perspective during a recent interview with a local paper: “It’s tough to find out who’s responsible for the action as the cat doesn’t speak.”
Just between you and me, I think the kitty acted alone.
Finally we move to Rocklin, California, where two teenagers were arrested and booked into a juvenile hall recently. Apparently, one of the girls wasn’t happy with her parents’ rule of no Internet access after 10 p.m. So she and a friend crumbled up some prescription sleep medication, slipped it into her parents’ milkshakes and waited for them to pass out, which they did within the hour.
Around 1 a.m., the drugged-up parents awoke with hangover-like symptoms, including headaches and grogginess. They took drug tests later that morning and when they came back positive, immediately contacted the police.
