TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .
Executives for a Japanese online dating site, who were arrested for scamming 2.7 million men when it was learned that there was only one female member.
Other than the sole female registered member, all the other “women” were actually men being paid to flirt with the guys on the site.
The company owned several online dating sites, all of which have been shut down.
AND THEN THERE’S …..
Ayan Zhademov, 20, a British man who was busted for dressing up as a woman so he could take his girlfriend’s college entrance exam.
His 17-year-old girlfriend was stressed about the exam, so Zhademov wore a wig and a skirt, and went to take the test for her.
Unfortunately for him, one of the test proctors thought he didn’t look enough like the photo on his girlfriend’s ID, and questioned him.
He tried to speak in a high-pitched voice to impersonate her, but they saw right through it and busted him.
He was fined $2,000, and his girlfriend will have to wait until next year to take the test and go to college.
OR HOW ABOUT …..
An unidentified woman in California, who pepper sprayed the staff of a Del Taco after they botched her order.
The woman ordered a burrito at a Del Taco drive-thru with a side of guacamole, but they forgot to include it.
So she stormed inside screaming, and pepper sprayed several staff members.
She left before the cops got there, but they have her license plate number and surveillance video, and they’re trying to track her down.
OKAY, ONE MORE …..
Leon Thurston, 61, a Florida man who was arrested for kidnapping his neighbor because she and her husband made too much noise in a shared laundry room.
Police say Thurston entered the room and clubbed her husband with a baton before kidnapping the woman at gunpoint.
She later escaped from him and flagged down a cop.
Thurston faces numerous charges, including armed burglary, aggravated battery, and kidnapping.
