Today’s winners are Benjamin Jorgensen and Donna Hayes. They get the award for the following.
MELBOURNE, Australia – Two Australian robbers were sentenced Tuesday for their April Fools Day heist at the Cuckoo Restaurant, where they thought they were hauling away a big sack of cash that turned out to be bread rolls.
Benjamin Jorgensen, 38, and his accomplice Donna Hayes, 36, were sentenced in Victorian County Court after pleading guilty to robbing the restaurant in the southern Australian city of Melbourne on April 1 last year.
During the holdup, Jorgensen grabbed what he believed was a bag with the Cuckoo’s cash earnings of about $26,000, but later found it was full of bread rolls, the court heard.
He also fired his gun accidentally in the caper, shooting Hayes in the buttocks.
Judge Roland Williams told the robbers they were a “pair of fools,” before sentencing Hayes to eight years in prison and Jorgensen to seven.
LMAO! With no further comment, I name Benjamin Jorgensen and Donna Hayes today’s Knuckleheads of the Day.
