More Incredibly Stupid Stuff

Police in Geraldton, Australia, reported in November that they had captured a thief they were chasing in the dark through a neighborhood's backyards. As the thief came to a fence and leaped over it, he happened to land on a family's trampoline and was propelled backward, right into cops' arms. 

Guy Black, 76, was charged in Turbotville, Pa., in October with threatening housemate Ronald Tanner with a chain saw. Tanner, defending himself with the only "weapon" within reach—an umbrella--managed to pin Black with it as the chain saw jammed. (Most people who bring an umbrella to a chain saw fight would be less successful.)

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) petitioned Irvine, Calif., to create a roadside memorial for the truckload of live fish that had perished in a recent traffic accident (After all, fish, like humans, use tools, tell time, sing, and have long-term memories, wrote PETA.) On the other hand, the traffic casualties that day were en route to the Irvine Ranch Market to be sold as food.

Live Long and Prosper...
