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.
