TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .
Juliana Broverio, 30, a Florida woman who accidentally started a house fire by hiding her crack pipe in the closet.
Broverio was smoking crack when she heard her mother returning after picking up her kids from school and panicked, so she hid her crack pipe in the bathroom linen closet.
Fire officials were having trouble figuring out why the fire, which caused about $15,000 worth of damage, started in a bathroom closet until they discovered the remnants of a crack pipe.
Broverio is charged with arson, possession of drug paraphernalia, and child neglect.
OR HOW ABOUT …..
James Gray, a passenger on a flight from Scotland to Amsterdam, who tried to open the aircraft’s door while the plane was at 30,000 feet, because he thought it was the door to the bathroom.
When he touched the handle, the staff on the plane flipped out.
When the plane landed, he was arrested and was fined $675.
OKAY, ONE MORE …..
A couple from Shanghai who spent their honeymoon in jail after beating up a store clerk, because he didn’t like them stealing ice cream.
Police say the 36-year-old groom and his 25-year-old wife went to a convenience store in Sapporo, Japan, took some ice cream out of the cooler, and started eating it right there in the store.
The clerk saw them and told them to leave.
The groom responded by punching him in the face, pulling his hair, and kicking him.
The groom said to police he beat up the clerk because, “I thought my wife was being insulted.”
The two lovebirds were arrested an jailed separately.
