Sex store thief got only half of it. A Bainbridge Island man is behind bars after he reportedly tried to make off with a mannequin from an adult entertainment store in Bremerton, according KOMO-TV. Trouble is, when the man tried to walk away with the mannequin, the bottom half fell off. What’s more, he came back to the store late that night and, wearing the mannequin’s wig, broke a window and grabbed some sex toys and lingerie, according to police. He was caught riding away on a bicycle, leaving a trail of stolen items behind him.

Nearly 20 percent said they’d pay $9-10 for that burger with the special sauce. You want fries with that? Oops, they’re included in the meal. If you’d still like to cast your vote, click here.
