    1. When his 38-calibre revolver failed to fire at his intended victim
    during a hold-up in Long Beach, California, would-be robber James Elliot
    did something that can only inspire wonder. He peered down the barrel
    and tried the trigger again. This time it worked..... And now, the
    honourable mentions:

    2. The chef at a hotel in Switzerland lost a finger in a meat cutting
    machine and, after a little hopping around, submitted a claim to his
    insurance company. The company expecting negligence sent out one of its
    men to have a look for himself. He tried the machine and lost a finger.
    The chef's claim was approved.

    3. A man who shovelled snow for an hour to clear a space for his car
    during a blizzard in Chicago returned with his vehicle to find a woman
    had taken the space. Understandably, he shot her.

    4. After stopping for drinks at an illegal bar, a Zimbabwean bus driver
    found that the 20 mental patients he was supposed to be transporting
    from Harare to Bulawayo had escaped. Not wanting to admit his
    incompetence, the driver went to a nearby bus stop and offered everyone
    waiting there a free ride. He then delivered the passengers to the
    mental hospital, telling the staff that the patients were very excitable
    and prone to bizarre fantasies. The deception wasn't discovered for 3
    days.

    5. An American teenager was in the hospital recovering from serious head
    wounds received from an oncoming train. When asked how he received the
    injuries, the lad told police that he was simply trying to see how close
    he could get his head to a moving train before he was hit.

    6. A man walked into a Louisiana Circle-K, put a $20 bill on the
    counter, and asked for change. When the clerk opened the cash drawer,
    the man pulled a gun and asked for all the cash in the register, which
    the clerk promptly provided. The man took the cash from the clerk and
    fled, leaving the $20 bill on the counter. The total amount of cash he
    got from the drawer... $15. (If someone points a gun at you and gives
    you money, is a crime committed?)

    7. Seems an Arkansas guy wanted some beer pretty badly. He decided that
    he'd just throw a cinderblock through a liquor store window, grab some
    booze, and run. So he lifted the cinderblock and heaved it over his head
    at the window. The cinderblock bounced back and hit the would-be thief
    on the head, knocking him unconscious. The liquor store window was made
    of Plexiglas. The whole event was caught on videotape.

    8. As a female shopper exited a New York convenience store, a man
    grabbed her purse and ran. The clerk called 911 immed iately, and the
    woman was able to give them a detailed description of the snatcher.
    Within minutes, the police apprehended the snatcher. They put him in the
    car and drove back to the store. The thief was then taken out of the car
    and told to stand there for a positive ID. To which he replied, "Yes,
    officer, that's her. That's the lady I stole the purse from."

    9. The Ann Arbor News crime column reported that a man walked into a
    Burger King in Ypsilanti, Michigan, at 5 a.m., flashed a gun, and
    demanded cash. The clerk turned him down because he said he couldn't
    open the cash register without a food order. When the man ordered onion
    rings, the clerk said they weren't available for breakfast. The man,
    frustrated, walked away. A 5-STAR STUPIDITY AWARD WINNER!

    10. When a man attempted to siphon gasoline from a motor home parked on
    a Seattle street, he got much more than he bargained for. Police arrived
    at the scene to find a very sick man curled up next to a motor home near
    spilled sewage. A police spokesman said that the man admitted to trying
    to steal gasoline and plugged his siphon hose into the motor home's
    sewage tank by mistake. The owner of the vehicle declined to press
    charges, saying that it was the best laugh he'd ever had.
