This week on Weird and Wacky Wednesdays, we find out what happens when internet porn meets work from home technology. Then, we look at a series of creative heists that resulted in two arrests here in the Lower Mainland. And finally, we learn that salad dressing is no substitute for dressing yourself in, you know, actual clothes.
Follow the jump to learn more about this week’s weirdest and wackiest legal cases from around the globe!
The New Yorker has suspended one of their reporters. Apparently, Jeffrey Toobin could not keep his toob in (har har) his pants while on a Zoom call. Worse still, the call was an election simulation. There are just so many jokes here.
What was not a joke was the fact that Toobin thought he was muted and off camera, when in fact he was fully visible and audible to everyone who saw the naughty deed. Toobin was apparently playing the role of the court, which, well, makes me think that he brought the administration of justice into disrepute.
Word on the street is that he may not get fully fired for this however… which makes one wonder… how far do you have to go in a Zoom gaffe to get terminated?
Tunnel of Love
A little closer to home, police have finally arrested two individuals in the Lower Mainland after a series of clever robberies occurred. The thieves allegedly tunneled into businesses, through adjacent buildings, and stealing commercial safes.
Honestly, this story from News1130 should be read with the music from The Great Escape playing in the background, especially as you look at the photographs which include man-shaped holes in the walls.
Points for ingenuity. But some docked because repetition guarantees getting caught.
That’s Not What we Meant by Dressing
Meanwhile, in Kansas, a naked teenager has found himself in something other than hot water. Specifically, he found himself covered in ranch dressing and crashed into a vehicle in the side of a Topeka gas station.
The story is even better than the headline. Apparently the seventeen-year-old kid decided to ingest some kind of substance, pour ranch dressing all over himself, damaged some business’s property, before then running outside to a nearby vehicle, jumping in and taking off… directly into a gas station.
Is this the wackiest allegation ever featured on this series? Quite possibly. Am I totally amused? Definitely.
