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

This Is What Happens When You Watch Too Much “Breaking Bad”

There are no real bozos or criminals involved here, but there was no way we could let this story pass by without taking note. Residents of Union County, Illinois noticed something strange going on in the woods. They reported a man carrying numerous buckets and plastic tubing into the forest. The authorities put two and two together and came up with the only possible solution…there was a meth lab being built in the woods! A drug enforcement swat team sprang into action and raided the place, guns drawn, demanding to be taken to the site of the lab. The homeowners took them into the woods to show them the setup…tubes coming out of trees with an amber fluid flowing into big plastic buckets. Not meth, but maple syrup. The officers left with a sample of the syrup and a standing invitation to come by for pancakes anytime.

    Good story and nice that the homeowner was so gracious. However, the sap they make maple syrup out of is actually thin and clear. It doesn’t turn sticky and amber-colored until it’s been boiled for a good while. :)
