Dave Moreland's Bozo Criminal of the Day - The world famous daily report on dumb crimes

September 4, 2002

Bozo criminals for today come from the International File. From Shanghai, China comes the story of a couple of lovesick bozos who really meant no harm to anyone but ended up getting themselves arrested anyway. Our Chinese bozos learned of a fad in Japan where couples walk around handcuffed together as a show of their devotion. So our bozos bought themselves a pair of handcuffs on a recent trip to Japan and couldn’t wait to get back home to show them off. They handcuffed their wrists together and went for a little stroll. They didn’t get very far before a tourist spotted them and, thinking something might be wrong, pointed them out to a policeman. The cop, obviously not a fan of young love, told them that it’s illegal in China to use police equipment for anything other than their original purpose and hauled them in. He eventually let them go, but kept the cuffs. Can’t they just go to Zale’s like everyone else?
