Stupid people with cars are still stupid

Wanted a man wearing a wanted t-shirt

In Chicago, a bold and outrageous theft staged in broad daylight, saw a driver pump about $900 worth of gasoline at a suburban gas station. The man removed the panel of a pump in Country Club Hills and manipulated the mechanics of the pump so that it would continue to pump gas without registering inside the station.

Cars then began pulling up to the pump and, apparently, cut deals with the thief, who then filled up their tanks and took off. In a 45-minute period of time, the thief doled out about $900 worth of gas. Apparently the staff inside the gas bar were unaware of the entrepreneur in their midst. The Donald would be proud!

Police issue travel alert - Don't make snow angels on dry pavement.

Police in Burnaby issued an unusual warning to drivers on Monday: If you run out fuel, do not lay down on the road to get assistance.

Police were alerted to a man's body laying along the Trans Canada Highway in the predawn darkness only to discover he was "quite alive", but that his car had run out of gas and he "wanted to attract someone's attention". The man's car was towed, but no charges were filed.



Worried that copycats may run (out of gas) and try this. The Police issued this nugget of information. "Guess it worked, but police don't really recommend this method."

The hilarity is two-fold. One, this event actually happened. Two, the police issued a press release about it. Obviously, the old cat-up-the-tree is reserved for really, really slow news days.
