Today's Doofus award goes to two would-be burglars in England.
Two alleged burglars were arrested after officers followed footprints from a cash machine that had been tampered with straight to the front door of a house a few streets away.
The suspected bungling burglars were caught out by the sudden snowfall as they tried to break into a cash machine at a village supermarket.
Responding to an intruder alarm, police arrived at the convenience store earlier this week to find the alarms blaring and a hole cut out of the metal shutters.

Officers followed the trail straight to the front door of a house a few streets away, where two men were arrested.
