YOU WANT FRIES WITH THAT STICK-UP?

A California crook ended up behind bars after trying to rob a local bank by saying he had a bomb - when he only had a cholesterol bomb!

Daniel Hegwood walked into the Wells Fargo branch carrying a bag that he claimed contained a bomb. He demanded and received cash, then fled, leaving the package-- which a bomb squad investigator determined contained two McDonald's apple pies.

Cops tracked him down in a nearby parking lot, at which point he insisted the bomb was actually in his backpack -- which turned out to contain nothing more than the cash he'd stolen from the bank.

IT'S A BIRD, IT'S A PLANE, IT'S THAT
NUT AGAIN!

Onlookers in a New York City park were left scratching their heads when the Man of Steel had it out with the father of our country - thanks to a Superman-obsessed loon who climbed a George Washington statue to deliver his own political statements.

Maksim Katznelson mounted the horseback statue and saddled up in front of our first president, shouting slogans about one world government and the need to free Tibet. When a cop got within a few feet of grabbing him, he clambered up further, sitting on Washington's shoulders and ranting even more loudly.

After about 45 minutes, Katznelson agreed to come down. Fortunately, he wasn't able to chop down any cherry trees in the process.

FAST CAR, SLOW WIT

A Montana man has been hit with a $1,000 fine after leading police on a high speed chase just for the heck of it.

John Hughes tailgated a police cruiser for about seven blocks in order to get the attention of the deputy inside, then pulled around and took off getting up to 100 miles per hour at his peak. The cop gave chase on the interstate for the better part of an hour before Hughes' car was disabled by a spike strip.

When asked what the whole thing was about, Hughes replied, "I just always wanted to do that."
