This Interview With A Dude Who Chased A Criminal Is As Australian As It Gets

On Thursday morning, Australian breakfast TV show, Today, featured an interview with a particularly Aussie bloke.

Brisbane man Daniel McConnell was awoken at around 2am on Thursday to the sound of someone crashing their car into the shop next door. Like any true Aussie hero, Daniel raced outside in nothing but his underwear to confront the culprit.

Asked how he managed to point cops in the right direction, Daniel gave us a ripper yarn.

The whole thing was summarised with a motto we should all try to live our lives by.

The man Daniel chased from the scene of the crime was arrested by police, and the owners of the destroyed shop have insurance. So really, it’ll just take some cleaning up.

A Shit-Carrying Truck Spilled Its Shit All Over A Road And Made It Really Shitty

A truck carrying 27 tonnes of human waste near Toowoomba, Queensland, spilled its load all over a busy road on Wednesday morning.

The truck, which was transporting the waste for a recycling company, was reportedly forced to brake suddenly to avoid a collision when a car attempted to merge in front of it.

The load was being transported with only a tarpaulin cover, and two tonnes of the waste spilled on to the road. Arkwood Organic Recycling co-director Elissa Clarke told Fairfax that transporting human waste via truck was like “carting a fish bowl”, and that drivers should be more careful when pulling in front of trucks.

There were no injuries reported and it took workers seven hours to clean the road.

And here’s a slo-mo video!

These 11 Husbands Need Everything Spelled Out For Them

1. His Wife Asked Him To Pack A Bag For The Baby

source

It was his first time packing a baby bag, and he thought he had crushed it…until his wife kindly let him know that the baby wasn’t supposed to be in the bag.

2. This Husband Is Very Precise

 source

This wife handed her husband a shopping list that read:

1 Milk

2 Cucumbers

3 Butter

4 Quark

5 Tomatoes

6 Eggs

We can see how he would get confused by this ambiguous list format (kind of). If the wife had put a period after the numbers, maybe the husband wouldn’t have gotten three packs of butter and exactly five tomatoes.

3. He Learned The Hard Way That You Can’t Microwave-Dry Shirts

source

This poor husband thought that he could save some money on laundry by drying his shirt in the microwave. And now his favorite shirt is ruined.

4. This Dad Thinks This Is How You Dress Babies

source

Essentially, all he did was pull some shorts over her pajamas. Boom. Baby’s ready.

5. Her Husband Doesn’t Understand Overalls

source

There’s a reason why they’re named “overalls,” as in you put them over something, like a shirt. Fortunately, Olivia looks like she’s pretty happy with her newfound no-shirt freedom.

6. This Husband Got Crafty In The Kitchen

source

His wife asked him to whip the cream, but he felt like the regular blender just didn’t have enough torque so he got a bit creative.

These Snapchats From Spoiled Rich Kids Are The Absolute Worst

1. Choices Are Hard

source

When rich kids and Snapchat combine, the results are…kind of what you expect. Oh, to have rich parents…

2. Fun And Games!

source

Those iPhones don’t even have cases. Meanwhile, I ate cereal for dinner because I felt like treating myself.

3. What A Waste

source

Sometimes you have to open up your mind. Before you judge, have you considered that this is what their actual poop looks like?

4. What A Little Toy

source

They probably got this little toy in their Happy Meal. Because it turns out, money DOES buy you happiness.

5. An Apple A Day

source

Everyone knows that doctors are more into Windows. We all learned that during the Johnny Appleseed unit in 1st grade.

Are These The Most Annoying Things People Do In Public?

1. People Who Walk Slowly

source

Oh, you’re just living life at your own pace aren’t you? Not a care in the world! Out for a purposeless Sunday jaunt are we? Well, good for you friend, but most of us have places to be. So why don’t you go snail-pace it around your living room instead and leave the sidewalk to the big boys!

(Obviously excusing anyone who physically can’t walk fast… I mean, we’re not monsters here.)

2. People Who Eat Stinky Food

source

Whether it’s on public transportation or in a compact office cubicle, the smell of someone else’s food is foul and makes us feel dirty inside, like we’ve involuntarily visited your home/fridge. Last night’s curried noodles may be appealing to you, but that’s probably because you’re the one eating them. TMI (too much inhalation)!

3. People Who Cut In Line

source

Congratulations, you are the most important person in this store! So, logically, you should be at the front of the line. All these other peasants are used to waiting for things, but not you! YOU are the king of the whole world and therefore must be treated as such by getting your latte 47 seconds before everyone else.

4. People Who Linger In The Bathroom

source

Ok, here’s the situation:

You enter a silent public restroom and notice only one stall is occupied. You almost smell the tension as they freeze, spooked by your arrival. You sit down on the toilet and…nothing. You can’t go because your neighbor is listening, just WAITING for you to leave so they can have the place all to themselves again.

We get it’s not your responsibility that we’re a nervous pee-er but please, help us out by pooping and leaving so we can pee in peace!

5. People Who Take Calls Through Headphones

source

These folk probably think they’re doing nothing wrong, but they are sorely mistaken. At a glance, we don’t see your headphones and therefore we either think you’re a crazy person talking to themselves (apologies, but we run into a lot of them in the city) or you are directly addressing us. The whole thing is an overall unsettling affair and we politely demand that you desist.

6. People In Activewear Being Inactive

source

We know we’re not alone in this gripe!

The intimidating yoga-brunch ladies and toned power couples that pollute our weekend streets with their thick fog of superiority and neon sweatbands need to stop. They think they’re fooling us, but we know they’re not working out today and they know we’re still recovering from last night’s martinis. In a perfect world, we’d all just be real and spend Sunday morning in our baggiest hoodies, wallowing in a collective pit of shame and regret.
