Crying Wombat

27Mar08

wombat.jpgA New Zealand man was sentenced to community service for wasting cops’ time after his distress call was deemed a fake.

The 48-year-old orchard worker pleaded guilty to a charge of “using a phone for a fictitious purpose”, after calling police with the startling mesage: “I’ve been raped by a wombat.”

It’s kind of not even funny, except in that way that everything about marsupials is funny. Seriously, is there a prize for the most humiliating way to get yourself an international 15 minutes? Because this guy is up there.
