A Sleeping Thief

Stealing stuff is stupid, but stealing pillows and leaving a trail of it to where you are sleeping on the stolen pillows is really stupid.

In this photo released by the Monroe Police Department, burglary suspect Kyle Burress is seen sleeping on pillows and pads allegedly stolen from storage containers at a nearby department store July 9, 2008, in Monroe, Wash. Burress was one of two men who were found asleep on apparent stolen goods after they allegedly broke into storage containers at Fred Meyer and left a trail of evidence to where they were found asleep. Police took some photographs before waking and arresting the pair, who have been charged with second-degree theft. (AP Photo/Monroe Police Department)

Apparently this guy and his friend broke into a department store, loaded up on things like pillows and hammocks, and then decided to just lay down and take a nap when (no surprise!) the police caught them.

Why Decimal Points Matter

We drove past this gas station with some awfully expensive Powerade Drinks the other day.

$250 is a big difference from $2.50. You’d think they would have noticed this and maybe changed what the sign said. But I guess it’s “close enough” for them.

WordPress Woes and a Name Tag

Well, I’ve finally finished upgrading to WordPress 2.6. It was kind of tricky, as it seems all of my plug-ins didn’t like the change and kept giving me errors saying “cannot redeclare snoopy”…I never heard of an error like that before!

Nonetheless, I have everything working now and I’m happy to say we’ve also got the SezWho plug, which is a new thing for entrecard users, giving you credits for comments You can learn more about that over at Entrecard.

Also today I’ve got a picture submitted to us by Dimaks of Ctrl + Alt + Delete:

 

It is a name tag from a waitress they had at a Japanese pizza shop. You can read the full story about it here.

Is it Really This Hard to Keep Track of a Remote?

Saw this remote here and it made me wonder…

Is it really so hard to keep track of a remote that you have to resort to duct taping it to the TV? Just goes to show there’s nothing you can’t do with duct tape, eh?

SKI MASKS ARE SO OUT OF SEASON…

These creative crooks made national news for robbing a convenient store and gas station with thongs over their heads.

According to the Denver Post, these thong bandits walked away with some money and cigarettes, all stuffed nicely in the one robber’s pink backpack. (Hey, if you’re wearing a thong over your head while robbing a convenience store, you obviously have no shame in carrying around a hot pink backpack either!)

I guess it’s too hard to find a ski mask this time of year?

FOR SOME GOOD CLEAN FUN…

I never thought that soap would make it to my site for best of stupid things…

That was of course before I saw this:

What I really admire about this is their warning label on the bottom that reads: “Caution: If the Weener Kleener ever becomes stuck, soak the area with COLD water.”

Yes, this soap is available for purchase. You can click on the picture above to go directly to the sales page, or visit The Lighter Side Co. to see this and their other “novelty gifts”. They actually have quite a nice array of gifts and unusual items, I was just naturally attracted to see what products were under the “Sassy/Attitude” category.

Anyone ever seen this before? Do you find this soap offensive? What would your reactions be if someone gave it to you as a gift?
