Truth In Stereotypes: Surfers Are Dumb

Thousand Oaks, CA

Last Saturday, Zack Howard, a championship surfer, and Robert Krafft, both residents of Malibu attempted to steal a motorcycle.

See if you can spot the flaw in their plan.

1) Pick bright, sunny Saturday afternoon to commit crime.

2) Drive SUV with clearly visible plates to front of Honda dealership

3) One guy wheels bike off dealership floor, the other holds the door open for him

4) Toss bike in back of SUV and drive off

Needless to say, they didn't get the bike. Workers at the store grabbed a wheel of the bike and pulled it out as they were pulling away. They got the license plate and called the county Sheriff.
...the two, in an attempt to avoid getting into trouble, later called the dealership and offered to bring in beer and quesadillas if the owners didn't pursue the case.

The dealership didn't go for it. Go figure.

Thanks for this go to Inkgrrl

Don't let Shelby see this. It'll ruin his day.

Damn. So close to home, dude. I thought I read an article recently that Thousand Oaks had the lowest crime for a city of it's size in the US. Did these guys just screw that up?

Beer and quesedillas?

These prison bars are like totally tubular, dude.

Way too many times getting slammed by the big waves. After consuming a lot of beer, one would assume.

You might want to be careful making fun of surfers. They might just be too dumb not to retaliate.

I probably shouldn't make fun of Armenian gangsters, either, but it hasn't stopped me so far.
