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

November 11, 2002

Bozo criminal for today definitely had a flawed business plan. From Vienna, Austria comes the story of bozo Wolfgang Ziegler who sold hot chestnuts on the street corner. Business had been a little slow so Wolfgang decided to drum up a little business. It was how he went about it that secured his status as a bozo. He called in a bomb threat to a nearby building, thinking that if police cordoned off the area, a large crowd would gather in the cold and would be tempted to buy his hot chestnuts. His plan worked until the cops traced the call to his cell phone and arrested him. He’s got three months in jail to come up with a better way of increasing sales.
