Stupid News for 11/22/13

   A Scottish postal worker earned a dressing down from a judge after he was found guilty of standing outside his home to make a not-so-special delivery by offering passing drivers a look at his package. Several motorists complained after Andrew Thomson was spotted hanging out in his front yard wearing an oversized T-shirt – which he would lift to deliver the male, whether or not they were interested in seeing it. He claimed he had a pair of boxer shorts on, but Sheriff Fiona Tait said she believed the string of witnesses who had seen his genitals. Thomson avoided jail time because the judge determined he wasn't a sexual threat.

      A carjacker in Florida decided to cut his victim a break by giving her the chance to cut any other criminal in her path - with a box-cutter he handed her as he drove off in her car. The driver, who had pulled over in a downtown area of Orlando to look at her GPS, says that the man approached her Honda Civic and started talking to her, then whipped out a gun and ordered her out of the vehicle. Before speeding away, he handed her a pink-handled box-cutter and told her to take care of herself because she was in a dangerous neighborhood. She told authorities she was physically unharmed but admitted to being shaken up by the incident.

      A Washington state man really "meth"-ed up his chance at a not guilty verdict by showing up for his meth possession trial carrying a pipe coated in residue from the drug. Steven Todd Campbell went to the Cowlitz County courthouse for a hearing on his status and reached the metal detector at the entrance, where a guard told him he had to empty his pockets. Campbell did as he was told, depositing his possessions into the designated container, when the guard noticed an odd-looking glass pipe. The device was taken in for examination and found to contain residue from Campbell's last meth binge -enough to get him tossed behind bars on yet another charge.
