Weird headline of the week

From the Telegraph:

Police seeking two oompa-loompas over Norwich assault

Two men dressed as Oompa-Loompas - characters from Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory - are being sought by police in Norwich after an attack in the heart of the city.

The victim, a 28-year-old man, was left with cuts, bruises and two black eyes, after being set upon outside a kebab house in the early hours of Thursday morning.

. . .

This was not the first time that oompa-loompas have had a brush with the law.

In 2009 violence flared at a Welcome Family holiday park when a brawl erupted during a fancy dress evening.

These miscreants included not only an oompa-loompa, but Spiderman and even Tinky Winky - the largest of the Teletubbies - best known for his size and red handbag.

. . .

Other fancy address attackers include two men dressed as Elvis Presley and Ozzy Osbourne who were convicted last year, of assaulting a police officer in a Wyatt Earp costume.

What's next?  A drive-by shooting by the Pillsbury Doughboy riding in the Oscar Meyer Weinermobile?

As long as the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man stays out of it, we're all okay.
