I'm at such a loss as to how to even begin writing about this one.
The article made me laugh and shake my head in disbelief, but the guy is so gut wrenchingly stupid that I don't know how to do it justice.
Reuters reports a 35 year old man from Adelaide, Australia called the police to report that his house had been broken into and some of his cannabis plants had been stolen.
Even the police must have been stunned by this guy's idiocy because they issued a very helpful public service announcement saying, "Members of the public are reminded that the growing of cannabis is not only illegal but can also attract other criminal activity such [sic]home break-ins and assaults,[sic]"
Reuters was so eager to get the article up and running that, at the very least, they left that comma hanging at the end. I don't know if dropping the word "as" was from the actual wording of the police statement or an error that got made in the rush to get such idiocy published first and fastest. Either way...
duh du-Duh duh DUUUHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!
