JOKERS CAPTURE PENGUIN

Three boozed-up bros hatched a pretty bird-brained plan when they broke into Sea World Australia and stole a penguin from its sanctuary. The men filmed the whole thing and sent the evidence to a local TV station, later claiming it was all a drunken prank

After pilfering the penguin, the men passed out and then tried to toss the poor bird into a local waterway "known to have sharks."

The penguin was found, stressed out, but uninjured, and returned to the wildlife park. The men have been charged with trespassing, stealing and unlawfully keeping a protected animal.

HOLD THE PICKLE, HOLD THE WEAPON

A Florida man who claimed he was skipped over in line at McDonald's super-sized his anger by coming back with a baseball bat.

The man actually complained verbally at first, then left the premises and returned with a bat and smacked the manager twice in the ribs. Employees said he then walked away calmly, using his shirt to open the door so as not to leave fingerprints.

He didn't steal a thing on his way out the door.

KEEP IT UNDER YOUR HAT

A Romanian cop wasn't exactly using his head when he cited a motorcycle passenger for not wearing a helmet, but giving her a free pass on having the rest of her body completely uncovered as well.

Passing motorists stopped to photograph the ticketing process and eavesdrop as the woman was given a warning to cover up ... her head. She did, then climbed back on the bike and rode off nude from the neck down.

The officer said the helmet violation was the only thing he was authorized to ticket for.
