Dumb Criminals

Ex-Ho Ho Ho

‘Twas night before Christmas, all through the house, not a creature was stirring…except for some lady chilling in the chimney. It’s the classic tale of the creepy ex-girlfriend stalker, this time with a Christmas twist! Is it too early for seasonal fun?

Apparently not for this 30 year old woman in Los Angeles, who spent a few hours hiding in the chimney of a man who had recently broken up with her. According to HP, a neighbor heard crying coming from a peculiar place and called the cops. Ingredients for removing bitter ex from chimney: 1) experienced policeman 2) dish soap as lubricant. Luckily the procedure was successful and the woman left the chimney, only to appear in court a week later. All of this could’ve been avoided if the homeowner hadn’t left out too many cookies…
