TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .
Tang Wusi, 43, a man in China, who received 21 speeding tickets because he didn’t realize his car’s speedometer was in miles per hour instead of kilometers per hour.
Wusi travels the same road quite often and thought he was traveling at 120 kilometers per hour, when in fact he was going 120 miles per hour.
Wusi received 20 speeding tickets in 18 months, but it was not until he was caught the 21st time that he realized he had confused the two on the speedometer of his import.
He has been fined and had his license revoked temporarily.
OR HOW ABOUT …..
Gregory Landrum, 32, who tried to steal a car, but couldn’t get it to start, so he stole a bicycle instead and got caught by police.
Landrum punched the victim in the back of the head five times, took his keys, and got into his car, but it wouldn’t start.
He then swiped the victim’s cell phone and then stabbed the victim’s tires and sped off on a stolen bicycle.
Landrum faces charges of armed carjacking, criminal mischief, and robbery without a weapon.
OKAY, ONE MORE …..
A 15-year-old in Germany, who tried to rob a store, but failed when the clerk started pelting him with lollipops.
The clerk sized up the situation and apparently wasn’t afraid of the gun, so he decided to fight back using the only thing he had within arm’s reach: lollipops.
Oddly enough, it worked and he ran off.
Police tracked him down and arrested the boy.
