This week on Weird and Wacky Wednesdays, we look at three cases of stupidity. First, the stupidest place to hide your drugs when you’re driving. Then, the stupidest way to achieve instant internet fame. Finally, the stupidest way to end a relationship.
If you want to learn more about how to do any of these things the completely wrong way, follow the jump and check out this week’s weirdest and wackiest legal cases from around the globe.
A Heart Full of Love, A Bag Full of Drugs
One easy way to make sure that the police suspect you are carrying drugs is to essentially advertise that fact. This is what happened in one arrest in — you guessed it! — Florida.
Florida highway patrol officers stopped two people whom they suspected were involved in the drug trade. As with many drug trafficking investigations, this one started out with a simple traffic stop for speeding that quickly morphed into a criminal investigation.
However, the reason for the investigation was relatively clear. The officers located a bag during the vehicle search, which was labelled “Bag Full Of Drugs.” Apparently totally aware of the concept of irony, the officers searched the bag and found, well, exactly what was labelled on the bag: drugs.
In Pursuit of a Viral Video
A man who boarded a flight from Toronto to Jamaica decided to get out his camera and try to achieve internet fame. In some ways, he succeeded.
According to his recounting of the tale, the man stood up mid-flight and shouted “Can I have everybody’s attention? I just came back from Hunan Province.” And while he apparently found this to be absolutely hilarious, the passengers on the flight and the flight crew did not. Some passengers on the plane indicate that he repeated several times that he was not feeling well and might be infected.
In any event, he was unsurprisingly arrested after the plane was turned back around and passengers had to be rescheduled.
A woman in Florida has found a new way to end a relationship. Forget ghosting, texting your breakup message, or even singing a breakup song. This woman takes the proverbial cake.
Apparently, the woman and her fiance had been involved in an argument when she decided to settle matters by taking a full-on dog shit and smearing it all over his face. Obviously, she was also apparently intoxicated at the time of the incident.
Now, I don’t really recommend this as a method to end a relationship. The woman, in this case, did not escape without arrest and a $2000 bond. And that’s a lot more expensive than ending your relationship in a reasonable and responsible way.
