The Great Shortbread Caper of 2014
One thing that Scotland is known for is Shortbread. A couple of weeks ago, I took great amusement in a BBC story: Lorry and trailer full of shortbread stolen in Kintore. The next day, I derived even more amusement from a subsequent story: Thieves who stole shortbread worth £15,000 scuppered by lorry fuel blunder. Apparently a bunch of thieves tried to steal a truck full of shortbread, but had to abandon their caper when they accidentally put non-fuel into the truck, leading the truck to stall out. You can't make these things up, folks.
