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

Not Exactly a G’Day

Thanks to Bozo News Hawk Howard Rost for sending in today’s report from the International File in Perth, Australia. It seems our unidentified bozo attempted to shoplift a laptop from a local Toys R Us store, slipping it under his coat and heading for the exit. He was spotted by store employees who were yelling for someone to stop him as he ran out the door. Unfortunately for him there were several someones at the entrance of the store who were more than qualified to bring him to a halt. The Australian Special Air Service troops (kind of an Aussie version of Navy Seals) were outside conducting a toys for tots collection. When they attempted to stop him, our bozo pulled a knife on the troupers. Bad idea. He was arrested, but not before being treated for two broken arms, a broken leg, broken ribs, multiple contusions, a broken nose and jaw and several lacerations. But don’t blame the SAS troops. The news report says our bozo suffered those injuries when he “tripped” trying to elude the troupers.

    Not Exactly a G’Day is not exactly true according to Snopes – http://www.snopes.com/politics/military/stabbedmarine.asp
    I’ve read versions of this one before.

      Looks like it’s your intrepid reporter who is the Bozo this time!
      I hang my head in shame…

    Love this site. Thanks for years of laughs. Unfortunately, today’s Bozo appears to be a variant of a circulated email based on a real event that took place about 2 years ago in Augusta, GA.

    Still funny, in any event.
