Gather round my friends & hear the (lobster tail) tale of an Aussie who put a very dramatic twist on the ole’ Dine ‘n’ Dash. An unnamed 33-year-old guy from the Northern Gold Coast sat down at the Surfer’s Paradise restaurant, downed 2 lobsters, 17 vodka oyster shots and 6 Coronas before ditching the bill & racing out of the restaurant. He apparently also stole a six-pack MORE of beer before exiting. Although I’m not exactly sure how one is able to deftly snag a six-pack at a restaurant when staff are feverishly chasing you for the previous affront. None-the-less, our crafty criminal failed to think through his daring escape, making a beeline for, and dashing straight into the ocean. Perhaps he thought he’d just swim to Fiji, casually get up out of the surf & blend in with the locals….forever. Life guards on jet skis dragged cops out to fetch Flipper who refused to get out of the water on his own accord. Cops had to jump in to apprehend the guy who is facing some charges & perhaps some soul-searching over his incredible disability at thinking things completely through.
