The world's worst car theft leaves the scene of the crime with only a stolen doggie bag in tow.

Iowa police reported Wednesday that someone broke into a parked truck outside a Des Moines home. According to the police report, the only thing missing from the truck after the break-in was a small bag filled with dog feces. Well done, car theft. You're going to be greeted with a welcome-tunnel of high-fives when you return home.  (Huffington Post)

IKEA is now cracking down on customers at the Beijing store who sleep on furniture. (Which, if you know Beijing IKEA, happens a-lllot)

The story of customers at IKEA’s Beijing branch inexplicably falling asleep on furniture has been circulating for nearly a year now.  A photographer even made a viral photo-series out of the hilarious -- and surprisingly common -- spectacle. Shanghailist reports this week that the phenomenon has gotten way out of hand and that the Beijing branch will “no longer be allowing this 'sampling' of the bedding.” (Mirror)
