One Sick Puppy

Is this the best news story ever?*

A German student created a major traffic jam in Bavaria when he made a rude gesture at a group of Hells Angels, hurled a puppy at them and then escaped on a stolen bulldozer.

The 26-year-old drove into the grounds of the motorcycle gang members’ clubhouse north of Munich on Sunday, according to reports in local media.

The young man, who was not identified, then dropped his pants, threw the puppy, and then fled. 

After making his getaway, he stole the bulldozer from a construction site, and attempted to drive it to Munich. However, it was not fast enough, and his snail-like pace caused a 3-mile traffic jam near the southern town of Allershausen, according to a report in the English-language newspaper The Local, which cited the daily tz.

It was lucky he had a puppy handy. There’s many a time I’ve been annoyed by someone, looked for a puppy to heave at them, and been disappointed.

Perhaps as an alternative I need to consider throwing other animal young. Does anyone have a recommendation for maximum impact? Baby seals? Ducklings?

* Maybe not so much for the puppy, but don’t worry, it’s fine.
