(Newser) – The dumb-criminal file has a brilliant new entry from Germany: Police charged a man with breaking into a fishing and hunting shop when they caught him near the store, reports Der Spiegel. He couldn't run quickly because a) he was drunk and b) he fell on fishing hooks in the store, and several were still embedded in his behind. Price tags and all.
