Greek Doughnut Sting - Three Words I Never Thought To See In A Headline

Millions of Greeks and thousands of tourists can now sleep easier at night knowing that beaches in Greece are safe from doughnut-wielding thugs.

Greek police smash violent doughnut ring
It took an undercover operation, but Greek police have blown a hole in a ring of alleged crooks who had cornered the doughnut market in a beach resort.

It started with complaints that two Bulgarian men and a former Greek wrestling champion were using violence to choke off the trade by other doughnut vendors on Paliouri beach in the Halkidiki peninsula near Thessaloniki.
wrestling champion ... choke off the trade ... sounds like something Homer Simpson would say ... Mmmmm...doughnuts... (*slobber*)

So an undercover officer posed as a doughnut seller, police said Tuesday, and he was attacked, leading to the arrest of the three aggressive doughnut sellers.
As a result, they have been charged with blackmail and fraud. They also were charged with food safety violations after police found they had stashed their product in an abandoned hotel that was open to the elements and used by bathers as a toilet.
Eewwww...

Still, all's well that ends well.

"Three aggressive doughnut sellers?" BWAHAHAHAHA! Oooooooooh, that's scawwwwwwyyyy!

I'm sorry, but if you need the police to go undercover and pose as a doughnut seller because doughnut crime has become such a problem in your country, you have failed as a country. EPIC FAIL! With that failure, you have demonstrated that you no longer deserve to even say, "doughnut", much less sell or eat them.

I never knew the Greeks were such pussies!..

Speaking of assholes and donuts, I had to use a rubber donut for a week or two after my hemorrhoid operation.

Best thing was I told my wife she had to blow it up since I didn't have the strength.

Good thing you've got her trained. My wife would have told me to blow it up myself.
