One In The Hole

image
A Norwegian golf course has been the victim of a perverse kind of vandalism repeatedly since 2005. Someone is sneaking on the golf course at night and defecating in the golf holes. The groundskeeper claims the vandal is likely a man due to the size of the...droppings. Security lights were erected to catch the offender, only to be disabled by him. So, 10 years later, this nasty person is still using the course holes as his personal potty much to the dismay of the grounds staff.

Locked in a closet

Earlier this week, John Arwood and Amber Campbell phoned police to report they were trapped in a closet at Daytona State College's Marine and Environmental Science Center. They had been there for 2 days and needed to get out. When the police arrived, the scene they found wasn't pretty. Piles of feces in the closet and drug paraphenalia. They also found the closet wasn't locked. In fact, it couldn't lock. The couple could have gotten out if they had simply pushed the door open. The pair have now been charged with trespassing.

Idiots That Live Among Us

A moron in Pennsylvania shot a gun into his neighbor's house while trying to clear the chamber. He stated in court that firing the gun was the only way he knew to unload it. Some people should not be allowed out on their own!

Poopy Trap

image
In Vienna, Austria someone set a bucket full of feces to explode when a line was tripped at a spot where police regularly park to watch for speeders. The police officer who tripped it was covered in poo from six and a half feet away. He wasn't injured except perhaps his dignity.
