Fools of last Week

A lot of stupid things seem to have happened last week. Here are the fools that made them happen.

The media
Gave so much free publicity to a certain incredibly shallow dating site which claimed to have a virus in a PR stunt. No idea why they all lapped up the “story”.

Installed a bus-shelter/advert in front of someone’s driveway.

Photos at This Is Gloucestershire don’t clearly show a driveway so maybe not as stupid as it first sounds!

Un-named contractors working for City of York Council
This is a good photo story so you’ve probably already come across it. A fence was installed through the middle of a football goal at a park in York.

Four masked men decide to go and break in to someone’s house in the middle of the night.  House occupants, including a “nice, quiet man who works in a local garage“, see them.  Phone the police.  One of the burglars is stabbed.  Burglar buddies carry off stabbed criminal before dumping his body in the road and running off.  They sound like really nice guys.

The Daily Record states that “his dad Garry, 52, admitted he [Jon Bennell] was on bail for another alleged burglary weeks earlier.” Some common sense though, dead burglar’s Dad also said “Things can get out of hand but you’re entitled to protect your property.”

This guy (not the one in the picture!) turned up to court on a shoplifting charge wearing the jacket he was accused of stealing. The jacket was ripped where he had removed the security tag.
