Two Darwin Award Winners

Quote:
MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) -- Two Australian robbers thought they were getting away with 30,000 Australian dollars (US$25,855), but netted a bag of bread rolls instead, a court heard Tuesday.

Benjamin Jorgensen, 38, and his accomplice Donna Hayes, 36, pleaded guilty to robbing the Cuckoo Restaurant in the southern city of Melbourne on April 1 last year.

During the holdup, Jorgensen accidentally shot Hayes in the buttocks, grabbed what he believed was a bag full of cash, but later found it was full of bread rolls.

Victorian County Court Judge Roland Williams told the April Fools Day robbers they were a "pair of fools," before sentencing Hayes to eight years in prison and Jorgensen to seven.
8 years for a bag of bread... LOL
