    Those crazy french

    A French artist allegedly traumatized by last week's Spain bombings was convicted of trying to run over a pedestrian he mistook for Osama bin Laden and ordered to pay the man $615.
    ``If it was (bin Laden), we would have won $5 million,'' Mendel said, referring to a reward.

    Don't we all want to win a prize
    A guy once told me, "Do not have any attachments, do not have anything in your life you are not willing to walk out on in 30 seconds flat if you spot the heat around the corner."

    Yeah, I, thought the Pakistani guy at the gas station was Bin Ladin, that's the only reason I drove off without paying. I wasn't going to support some terrorist.

    LMAO! That is the most ridiculous defence, but the worst part is that he's for real!
