A German student created a major traffic jam in Bavaria after making a rude gesture at a group of Hell's Angels motorcycle gang members, hurling a puppy at them and then escaping on a stolen bulldozer.

The story is here and Felix Salmon also cited this.  We are informed that:

That’s useful to know. I had no idea hurling puppies was so offensive to Germans.

American’s just “shoot the bird.” Is “hurl the puppy” a type of hand gesture?

It was a mentally ill person, which explains why he managed to create a traffic jam by slowly “escaping” on a very very slow bulldozer.

Those Hell’s Angels should consider themselves lucky – I could die happy if I saw something as hilariously absurd as a stolen bulldozer getaway just once.

To Careless – Getting arrested equals escaping for a sufficiently loose definition of “escape”.

I’d still be sitting there trying to figure out the clutch.

It helps that most cars in Europe have manual transmission.

Pretty interesting story!But I don’t believe that Germans can be that much evil to Hurled a puppy..

If I were an editor at “The Onion”, I would simply give up. How do you top this story for absurdity?
