Doofus Of The Day #797

Today's award goes to two idiots in New Zealand.

It may have seemed like a good idea at the time, but a team of West Aucklanders who used ingenuity over common sense to shift a fridge now have the police on their trail.

The group were spotted driving in Titirangi towards Glen Eden on Friday afternoon. A large fridge was perched on the roof of a two-door Nissan and to keep it in place, one man stood on the boot [for US readers, 'boot' = trunk] holding it down as another drove.

The bizarre move was captured on camera by a passenger in a vehicle behind the Nissan and posted on Facebook and Twitter.

Police are now keen to speak to the "brains" behind the operation.

There's more at the link.

The newspaper went further, publishing a picture gallery of weird and wonderful (not to mention dangerous) ways used by New Zealand motorists to move furniture.  My favorite is this one.

Again, more at the link.

Talk about an accident looking for a place to happen . . .

Why are the cops hunting them down? They made it to where they were going, no one got victim, no crime. :shrug:

A quarter of the country's population lives in that one city; I suspect it's made them a little bit nuts.
