A Florida man decided he wanted to catch his neighbors in the act of stealing his mail.  Did he do what a normal person would do and mount a camera nearby?  Nope

Dibble, a 63-year-old Floridian, suspected that his mail was swiped as retaliation by neighbors upset that he had called police about criminal activity in his Bradenton neighborhood. In an interview, Dibble referred to “the drug dealer across the street” and a woman who runs a “house of prostitution next door.”

In what must have seemed a brilliant idea at the time, Dibble placed a mousetrap inside his mailbox (seen above) and raised the red flag. The goal, a police report notes, was “to catch someone stealing his mail.”

Dibble, investigators noted, “had planned to make the mail carrier aware of the trap.” However, since this is Florida (and TSG), Dibble’s plan, of course, backfired.

Cynthia Humphreys-Smith, a 37-year-old postal worker, “came a different route and time” last Friday, police reported. When she reached into the mailbox to retrieve outgoing mail, “her hand slammed in the trap.” Humphreys-Smith, who suffered “pain and throbbing in the hand,” told police that her hand “had just recently healed from being broken.”

God of making the characteristic which becomes dirty sends the hurricane.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
