Friday 1/11

An Australian man was left feeling a little bit blue after he was beaten up by Smurfs!  The victim says a blue man, who was done up to look like Papa Smurf, approached him inside a convenience store to ask for a smoke, and when he refused, the blue dude turned red and attacked. There were three more, who were allegedly trying to jump-start a car in the store’s parking lot, joined in for a bit, then fled. All four have since been arrested after handing themselves into police.

Adam Dillingham and two accomplices tried and failed to get employees to accept funny money at an IHOP before moving on to the Mickey D’s, where they thought they’d have better luck. The manager didn’t fall for it, and made a call to cops, who arrived just in time to see Dillingham stuff his face with the bills – but managed to get him to spit out the evidence and charge him with several crimes.

Cops in Washington state are on the lookout for a wanna-be burglar who’s described as in his 20s, about 5-foot-8 with a thin build and wearing a stocking cap – but no pants!  Homeowner Dianne Lavalley says that she and her husband were awakened by the barking of their dog and ran downstairs just in time to see the crook sprinting away empty handed- thankfully! When she went to the videotape in the family’s security camera, she says “We were like OMG, I couldn’t believe my eyes. It was shocking that there was actually somebody there with their pants on their ankles.” On the bright side, it’s a safe bet that he wasn’t carrying a concealed weapon.
