TGIS: Thank God It's Schadenfreude! (71)

This week's joy in the misfortune of others comes courtesy of the Associated Press (from Tuesday, July 4; link good at time of posting):
[A Jordanian man in Dubai] has been arrested for allegedly trying to use an ID card with an Arabic name and [actor Brad] Pitt's photo which he allegedly downloaded from the Internet.

He allegedly forged the card with the Hollywood actor's picture and an Arabic name in an attempt to steal more than $22,000 left unclaimed at an exchange house where his brother worked as a teller, according to a report in the daily Gulf News.

He told police he had never heard of Pitt.
