A man, who was dubbed Britains most stupid criminal, was jailed.
This silly thief decided to hold up a gas station and disguised himself with a see-through plastic bag over his head.

Is this a Darwin Awards thread???
I just love those!
You have to die to get a Darwin Award, this guy is just stupid.
Dang! You are right, I forgot about the death part! My favorite was the guy who gave the constipated Indian Elephant an enema, he felt sorry for the elephant...not for long!
I was hoping you were going to tell me he suffocated.
What a dummy I could have given him some vanish cream he could have rubbed on his face.
I hear they caught him just in time to save his life - plastic bag over the head is not a good idea for any reason.
The wife and I were in Cornwall last year vacationing er on holiday with her native Brit sister and bro-in-law. We stayed near St. Austell for a week. However, we did not see any people with a plastic bag over their heads. At any rate, the fish and chips were spectacular. As were the Cornish pasties.
