TGIS: Thank God It's Schadenfreude! (168)

This week's joy in the misfortune of others comes courtesy of the Associated Press (from Tuesday, May 20; link good at time of posting):
Wade Churchward, 28, went to a service station on March 22 in the capital, Wellington, where he picked up two packets of M&Ms candy and some potato chips, the Dominion Post newspaper reported.

Churchward, who had been drinking, began snacking on the goods while standing in line at the cash register.

But when he reached the cashier, he realized he did not have enough money, and instead offered a container with 0.042 ounces of marijuana and a pipe for smoking it.

Churchward failed to notice a patrol car parked outside and a police officer standing behind him in line - who promptly arrested him.
