Today's award goes to a hapless drug smuggler in Colombia.
It was the latest ingenious plan conjured up by Colombian drug barons to smuggle marijuana to prison inmates.
They strapped a package containing 1.6 ounces of the drug to a pigeon and pointed it in the direction of the jail in Bucaramanga.
But the excess baggage proved too much for it. The bird crash-landed and was captured by two policemen who found it flapping helplessly near the prison.
There's more at the link. Here's a video report about the incident.
One hopes the person who loaded the pigeon was able to persuade those behind the scheme that the capture of the pigeon wasn't his fault . . . otherwise they're likely to end up being used as a human version of a clay pigeon by their angry bosses!
