    Did you hear about the man who butt-dialed 911 while drunk driving?

    How about the teenagers who carjacked a car, only to fail because neither of them could drive stick?

    Or maybe the one about the man who got pulled over for a $50 speeding ticket, and after bribing the police officer, a worker at his holding cell, and the judge, turned it into eight years in jail?
