    Just read this and had to share. Nice to see you can outrun a harley on a bulldozer.......

    "Puppy thrown at German biker gang

    A German student "mooned" a group of Hell's Angels and hurled a puppy at them before escaping on a stolen bulldozer, police have said.
    The man drove up to a Hell's Angels clubhouse near Munich, wearing only a pair of shorts and carrying a puppy.
    He dropped his shorts and threw the dog, escaping on a bulldozer from a nearby building site.
    He was arrested later at home by police. The 26-year-old is said to have stopped taking depression medication.
    After making his getaway on the bulldozer, he had driven so slowly that a 5km tailback built up behind him on the motorway.
    After driving about 1km, he had abandoned the bulldozer in the middle of the motorway, near Allershausen. He continued his journey by hitchhiking.
    "What motivated him to throw a puppy at the Hell's Angels is currently unclear," a police spokesman said.
    The puppy is now being cared for in an animal shelter."

    reminds me of a couple of my friends from college 40+ years ago, they got hammered drunk at the bars one nite, after last call they decided to break into a beer distributor's warehouse, when they got there, the parking lot was just freshly repaved that day and the construction company left their equipment onsite including a steamroller. My buddies decided to steal the steamroller instead and play chicken with cars on the street.

    all those lawyers and dentists are going to need grief counseling next time they see a dog or hear construction equipment.

    maybe the kid just watched southpark for the first time ?

    Ah crap!! I didnt notice the date on that story that I just read today on BBC. I assumed it was current news - not from 3 years ago.

    I feel shame....

    Hells Angels? That chapters status has just been reduced to 'pansies with wings'. How are you going to let a man moon you and then throw a dog at you then let him escape on a bull dozer!
    Maybe they were laughing too hard to give chase. Maybe they were too busy applauding the audacity of such an approach. Maybe they thought anyone crazy enough to drive a bull dozer around and toss canines at people might be a prospect worth looking into. It seems like all the good ideas are taken before I can think of them. Anyone up for a trip to Miami to chuck goats from a steam roller at the Mongols? :rofl
