T Our bozo criminal for today learned the hard way that you just can’t pull off an airline hijacking without the proper tools for the job. From the International File in Ankara, Turkey comes the story of our bozo who, while on board a flight on Turkish Cypriot Airlines, burst into the cockpit holding a hand grenade and threatening to set it off if the plane wasn’t diverted to Germany. The pilot looked up from the controls and kept on flying, having noticed that the alleged hand grenade was in fact quite obviously a cigarette lighter shaped like a hand grenade. The bozo was grabbed by the flight crew and taken into custody upon arrival in Ankara.
