TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .
A cleaning crew at the Museion modern art gallery in Bolzano, Italy, who accidentally threw out an entire art exhibit, because they thought it was trash.
To be fair, the art exhibition called “We were going to dance tonight” by Milanese artists Goldschmied & Chiari was a bunch of empty bottles, and it was supposed to look like trash from a party.
On arrival, the cleaning crew saw the mess of empty bottles, cigarette buts, confetti, and even shoes and clothes and got to work cleaning up the mess.
Fortunately for the world of modern art, all was not lost.
After organizing the trash into separate bin bags for glass and plastic, the cleaners realized their error before they threw out the artworks for good.
“We will try to put it back as it was, using photos to help us,” Ragaglia said.
AND THEN THERE’S …..
Mitchell Harris Feinberg, 39, who was arrested after he broke the glass door at a Waffle House in Georgia, because he was angry they upped the price of their sausage biscuits by 50 cents.
A waitress told police that Feinberg became belligerent because his usual $1 order was raised to $1.50.
Surveillance video reportedly showed Feinberg get up from his corner booth, throw his bill on the floor and kick the front door on his way out.
The glass shattered, and Feinberg fled to a nearby apartment complex, where he was charged with disorderly conduct and second-degree criminal damage to property.
OR HOW ABOUT …..
A Peoria, Illinois man, who shot another man with a bow-and-arrow while attending a Halloween party at a local gym.
Police say a 24-year-old man was leaning over to fix his costume and he felt a pain in his head, then saw a real arrow at his feet.
The injured man told police he thinks the male who shot him was joking and hit him unintentionally.
He declined medical attention and didn’t want to press charges.
Police say everyone at the party was intoxicated and no one would say what really happened.
Oddly enough, the bow-and-arrow wasn’t part of the man’s costume, the guy just happened to have a real bow-and-arrow with him.
OKAY, ONE MORE …..
A 21-year-old New York man, whose real name is Indiana Z. Jones, who got into a high-speed chase with the cops on Sunday night and ended up with 14 violations.
Police initially tried to pull Jones over for an unknown traffic violation but instead he lead them on a chase for several minutes at speeds in excess of 100 mph.
His adventure ended thanks to some stop sticks cops laid out to puncture his car’s tires.
Jones faces charges including unlawfully fleeing a police officer, reckless operation, speeding, and having an unregistered, uninsured, and uninspected vehicle.
Deputies also said there were multiple vehicular equipment infractions, too.
