TODAY'S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .

    An unnamed 33-year-old security guard, who accidentally discharged his weapon and shot off his penis. The man, a security guard on the island of Trinidad and Tobago, was carrying the .38 caliber handgun in his pocket when it went off, striking him in the groin. Officers responding to the scene found the driver slumped at the wheel and bleeding from the injured area. To add insult to injury, police learned the injured security guard did not possess a license for the gun he was carrying. He faces charges of illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition and a lot of snickers from the rest of us.

AND THEN THERE'S .....

    Three masked men, one of them armed with a handgun, who burst into a Chinese restaurant and demanded cash. The clerk quickly fled to the back of the restaurant, leaving the robbers alone in front of the cash register. Time for the big score, right? Well, not exactly. Try as they might, none of robbers could figure out how to open the cash register to get access to the cash inside. After several frustrating minutes, the three finally gave up and left empty handed.

OR HOW 'BOUT .....

    Alvaro Francisco, 26, a Florida man, who dial 911 ten times asking for a ride to Mexico. Each time he called he was advised that those requests are not an emergency and do not require 911. But still he called. That was until police arrived and arrested him for misusing the 911 system.

OKAY, ONE MORE .....

    Three police officers in Calgary, Canada, who were caught on video drag racing to a donut shop. The video that surfaced on YouTube, shows two marked city cop cars and an unmarked vehicle at a red light speed off at a green light and one of the police cars pulled directly into a Tim Hortons donut shop. The videographer first thought police might be responding to a robbery, then realized it wasn't. The police chief is investigating to see if any "actual" wrong doings occurred and assured the community he holds his officers to a high level of accountability.
