From the “You Can’t Make This Stuff Up” File

Via the BBC:  Puppy thrown at German biker gang.

A German student “mooned” a group of Hell’s Angels and hurled a puppy at them before escaping on a stolen bulldozer, police have said.

The man drove up to a Hell’s Angels clubhouse near Munich, wearing only a pair of shorts and carrying a puppy.

He dropped his shorts and threw the dog, escaping on a bulldozer from a nearby building site.

Wait.  What?!


“What motivated him to throw a puppy at the Hell’s Angels is currently unclear,” a police spokesman said.


And in case you were wondering: “The puppy is now being cared for in an animal shelter.”

    Apparently the number of people on meth is higher than I thought.

    You could have left out the fact that this happened in Germany and I still would have guessed it.

  3. Is puppy tossing an especially German activity?
