Some stories of fails . . .


A plumber sent to prison on a driving charge had pleaded with Walton-on-Thames magistrates not to jail him as he was due to marry the next week.

The local newspaper reported the case, thus alerting his wife that he was about to commit bigamy.

Henri Darque – Magician

In Paris, France, magician Henri Darque managed to extricate himself from a pad-locked box... after three weeks! The illusionist had himself strapped inside a straitjacket and

locked in the container, as a large audience looked on. Darque was supposed to escape within five minutes, but he never emerged. He left strict orders with his assistant never to help him out of the box. So three weeks later, he climbed out of the box... the bored audience had left after the first night.


Mark Ashby – Schoolboy

Mark Ashby was given a blue Mohican hairstyle by his parents as a reward for hard work at school in Omaha, Nebraska. The school then suspended him for breaking the dress code.

Joan Slote – Cyclist

Joan Slote, aged 74, was fined £4,800 by the US Treasury for going on a cycle tour of Cuba, defying the US embargo of the island. She was also fined £80 for buying souvenirs.

The worst homing-pigeon:

This historic bird was released in Pembrokeshire in June 1953 and was expected to reach its base that evening. It was returned by post, dead, in a cardboard box eleven years later from Brazil.

The least successful exhibition:

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents held an exhibition at Harrogate, Yorkshire in 1968. The entire display fell down.

The least successful distribution of anti-virus software:

A distinguished software development group of a Computer Studies Department of an Austrian University, known and recognized for their contributions to anti virus software, proudly announced its most recent product and distributed it to selected testers.

Unfortunately the distribution disk was infected by a new type of virus which could not be detected, nor could it be removed by the previous release of that anti virus software. An awkward call back action was necessary.

Worst rugby match:

In 1966 a rugby match between a team from Colwyn Bay, Wales and Portmadoc rugby club was unexpectedly abandoned when at the kick off it was discovered that neither team owned a ball.

And some visual . . .
