Zombie freaks out Germans

In Alchohol, Germany, Halloween, Hamburg, Murder, party, police on October 30, 2007 at 3:10 pm

It may be an American tradition, but commuters in the German city of Hamburg were scared shitless when they mistook a drunken Halloween reveller dressed up as a gore-covered zombie for a murder victim.

The question I ask however is, shouldn’t they have been primarily concerned with the possibility that what they were seeing was a real zombie?

Reports:

The 24-year-old man fell into a drunken slumber on his way home from a Halloween party in Hamburg, police in the northern town of Bad Segeberg said.

Believing his hands and face were smeared with blood, passengers alerted police after getting no response from him.

A first aid team called to the scene soon cleared up the confusion. Police told the man to remove his make-up after which he was allowed to continue his journey.

“Bad Segeberg is in a rural area and Halloween isn’t very well known there,” police spokeswoman Silke Tobies said.

“So people weren’t expecting anyone to be dressed up in the train.”

Oh the horrrooorrrrrrrr!

Now I’ve got myself a new gag for April Fools Day, mwaaahahahhahahaha!

Zombies are so cool.

Happy Halloween, ya’ll!

Teen on go-kart outruns seven police squad cars.

In the German town of Moenchengladbach, speed runs in the locals veins.

A need for speed that is. Speed as in fast cars, you know, vroom, vroom, etc.

Why? Well not only has this German town produced two successful Formula 1 racing drivers, Nick Heidfeld and Heinz-Harald Frentzen, it’s also been the scene for a dangerous police chase that saw a teenager on a go-cart outrun seven local police squad cars.

“We were chasing him across town, but the squad cars couldn’t keep up because the go-cart was able to take the corners faster and he was able to get away,” police spokesman Willy Thevissen said.

Taking a 5km (3mile) getaway, the gutsy 18-year-old spotted a private garage with an open door, where he decided to lie low.

However, his luck ran out, police soon discovering his hiding place. He was questioned and charged with driving without a license and driving a go-kart on a public street, which is not permitted in Germany.

And now, for some mindless go-kart racing, crashes and biff…

Hello Coppy!

Bad cops, bad cops, what are we gonna do with you…..

Police chiefs in Bangkok, Thailand have come up with a harmless, yet extremly embarrassing punishment for officers who “break the rules”.

Officers who are late, park in the wrong place or commit other minor transgressions will have to wear a large armband that is bright pink and has a Hello Kitty motif with two hearts embroidered on it.

“This is to help build discipline. We should not let small offences go unnoticed,” Police Colonel Pongpat Chayapan told Reuters news agency.

“Guilty officers will be made to wear the armbands in the office for a few days, with instructions not to disclose their offences. Let people guess what they have done,” he said.

The Hello Kitty brand is mainly marketed toward the pre-adolescent female market and the ploy by the Bangkok police department will no doubt smash any notions of masculinity in a force comprised mostly of male police officers.  

Yep, doesn’t get much girlier and pink than Hello Kitty, who, according to her website, has a twin sister called Mimmy and loves eating “yummy cookies” and making new friends.

Bananas!

A man who swallowed a necklace that he stole from a woman when he was caught by police has been forced to eat at least 50 bananas.

A 35-year-old Indian man was nabbed by local residence in Kolkata. He initially denied having swallowed the 45,000 rupee necklace, but x-rays showed it was indeed in his stomach.

Police threatened to put Sheikh Mohsin under the knife if he didn’t go along with his new banana diet.

“Mohsin was initially reluctant to eat the bananas, but we told him that doctors would cut him open to recover the chain. He immediately wolfed down the bananas at one go,” said the deputy commissioner of police.

However, the bananas did not work. So police then decided they would cook up a feast for Mohsin, feeding him rice, chicken and bread.

After a long wait, the necklace was finally retrieved.

Hilarious!

Meanwhile, in other crime and banana related news….

Authorities in California, USA, are on the hunt for a bank robber nicknamed The Banana Bandit.

The man has been hitting a number of banks since May, and robbed his tenth on Friday. He earned the name from media because he was casually eating a banana when robbing a bank May 16; he has also been seen eating potato chips in another robbery.

And now, for the crazy adventures of 80’s British cartoon superhero…Banana Man!
