    Idiot # 1
    I am a medical student currently doing a rotation in toxicology at the poison control center. Today, this
    woman called in very upset because she caught her little daughter eating ants. I quickly reassured her
    that the ants are not harmful and there would be no need to bring her daughter into the hospital. She
    calmed down, and at the end of the conversation happened to mention that she gave her daughter some
    ant poison to eat in order to kill the ants. I told her that she better bring her daughter into the
    Emergency room right away.
    Here's your sign lady. Wear it with pride.
    Idiot # 2
    Seems that a year ago, some Boeing employees on the airfield decided to steal a life raft from one of the
    747s. They were successful in getting it out of the plane and home. When they took it for a float on the
    river, a Coast Guard helicopter coming towards them surprised them. It turned out that the chopper was
    homing in on the emergency locator beacon that activated when the raft was inflated. They are no
    longer employed at Boeing.
    Here's your sign guys. Don't get it wet, the paint might run.
    Idiot # 3 - A story out of San Francisco:
    A man, wanting to rob a downtown Bank of America, walked into the branch and wrote "this is a stikkup.
    Put all your muny in this bag." While standing in line, waiting to give his note to the teller, he began
    to worry that someone had seen him write the note and might call the police before he reached the teller's
    window. So he left the Bank of America and crossed the street to Wells Fargo. After waiting a few minutes
    in line, he handed his note to the Wells Fargo teller. She read it and, surmising from his spelling errors
    that he wasn't the brightest light in the harbor, told him that she could not accept his stickup note because
    it was written on a Bank of America deposit slip and that he would either have to fill out a Wells Fargo
    deposit slip or go back to Bank of America. Looking somewhat defeated, the man said, "OK" and left. He was
    arrested a few minutes later, as he was waiting in line back at Bank of America.
    Don't bother with this guy's sign. He probably couldn't read it anyway.
    Idiot # 4
    A motorist was unknowingly caught in an automated speed trap that measured his speed using radar and
    photographed his car. He later received in the mail a ticket for $40 and a photo of his car. Instead of
    payment, he sent the police department a photograph of $40. Several days later, he received a letter from
    the police that contained another picture, this time of handcuffs. He immediately mailed in his $40.
    Another sign (though this guy might be onto something worth thinking about)!
    Idiot # 5
    Guy walked into a little corner store with a shotgun and demanded all the cash from the cash drawer. After
    the cashier put the cash in a bag, the robber saw a bottle of scotch that he wanted behind the counter on
    the shelf. He told the cashier to put it in the bag as well, but the cashier refused and said, "Because I
    don't believe you are over 21." The robber said he was, but the clerk still refused to give it to him
    because he didn't believe him. At this point the robber took his driver's license out of his wallet and
    gave it to the clerk. The clerk looked it over, and agreed that the man was in fact over 21 and he put the
    scotch in the bag. The robber then ran from the store with his loot. The cashier promptly called the police
    and gave the name and address of the robber that he got off the license. They arrested the robber two
    hours later.
    (Remind me to have more signs printed up. Give this guy his!)
    Idiot # 6
    A pair of Michigan robbers entered a record shop nervously waving revolvers. The first one shouted,
    "Nobody move!" When his partner moved, the startled first bandit shot him.
    (This guy doesn't need a sign, he probably figured it out himself.)
    Idiot # 7
    Arkansas: Seems this guy wanted some beer pretty badly. He decided that he'd just throw a cinder block
    through a liquor store window, grab some booze, and run. So he lifted the cinder block and heaved it over
    his head at the window. The cinder block bounced back and hit the would-be thief on the head, knocking him
    unconscious. Seems the liquor store window was made of Plexiglas. The whole event was caught on video
    (Oh, that smarts. Give him his sign!)
    Idiot # 8
    Ann Arbor: The Ann Arbor News crime column reported that a man walked into a Burger King in Ypsilanti,
    Michigan at 12:50 A.M., flashed a gun and demanded cash. The clerk turned him down because he said he
    couldn't open the cash register without a food order. When the man ordered onion rings, the clerk said they
    weren't available for breakfast. The man, frustrated, walked away.
    Please note that these people are allowed to vote!
