Michigan Man Mistakes Convenience Store Robber for Practical Joking Friend

A convenience store customer was struck on the head with a gun when he mistook a robber for a friend who he thought was playing a practical joke, police said.

The masked man entered Sandler's Party Store about 10:30 p.m. Wednesday, brandished a handgun and demanded money.

Patrick O'Brien, 21, walked up to the man, thinking he was a friend, and grabbed him in a playful way, police said. The gunman then hit O'Brien in the head with his gun.

The gunman fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.

O'Brien was not seriously injured and did not seek medical treatment, the Times Herald of Port Huron reported.

He was visiting a friend at the store in Fort Gratiot Township, 55 miles northeast of Detroit.

It's not funny he got assaulted but it's funny he assumed a MASKED MAN WITH A GUN IN A CONVENIENCE STORE was his friend playing a joke.

The guy was really trying to get that Darwin Award, wasn't he? Well, maybe next time. And with a brain that lame, you KNOW that there'll be a next time. He could find some nitroglycerin and think that it's fake, or see a car speeding down the sidewalk at him, and think that it's a friend playing a joke, or...

I think that this may have been the guy's brother (and maybe his nephew, too):

04:10 PM CDT on Saturday, July 21, 2007

Associated Press

MEXICO CITY – A 16-year-old U.S. tourist fell 1,000 feet to his death at an abandoned mine in central Mexico, and rescue workers were trying to recover his body on Saturday.

Witnesses told police that Taylor Crane tried to jump over the 10-foot-wide shaft of the Cinco Senores mine in Guanajuato state and fell in Friday, said Jose Felix Velazquez, a spokesman for police in San Luis de la Paz, where the mine is located.

Felix Velazquez said about 40 searchers have been working on the recovery effort, which has been complicated because the mine is flooded with water that “has a lot of arsenic and lead, and that makes it hard to breath down there.”

He said Crane was from Pennsylvania, but did not know his hometown.

Crane arrived from the nearby tourist haven of San Miguel de Allende with a group that was visiting abandoned mines and haciendas, Felix Velazquez said.

Yeah, but you've got to admit that there is a difference between forgetting that the front porch has been removed and attempting to broad jump a mine that is 1,000 feet deep. Not much chance of a "do over" in the latter.

When I was 7 or 8, I walked into a chest-high electric fence, and it knocked me on my butt. I was so dazed that I got up and walked into it again.

He was probably trying to impress some girl, but she was probably so thoroughly unimpressed that she'll never date any boy, for fear that her kids will be morons, too.
