Thanks to Bozo News Hawk Glen Snow for sending in today’s report. From the International File in Auckland, New Zealand comes the story of an unidentified bozo who stole a laptop computer. Since his work required a computer, the owner placed an ad in a computer magazine for another one of the same make and model. And wouldn’t you know it, our bozo called him up, offering to sell him his own computer for $750, saying he’d be glad to stop by and demonstrate it. Taking him up on his offer, the man immediately recognized it as his own, since the bozo hadn’t even bothered to erase the files or remove the programs. Sending one of his friends next door to call the cops, the man stalled our hapless thief until police arrived by challenging him to a game of chess. He lost.
