The Headlines:

  • Woman Opens Bring Your Own Food Restaurant (FAKE)
  • Teenager Discovers Disposable Camera With Pictures From 1986 In It (FAKE)
  • Dirty Underwear Being Used To Protect Cars From Theft (REAL)

Not sure I would ever go to this length to ensure my car doesn't get stolen but a British man has found a new anti-theft device that seems to work. He simply uses his dirty underwear. A British author has stumbled onto a new business after he successfully sold his underwear on eBay as a car security system for $12. The ad shows a dirty pair of red briefs wrapped around a steering wheel and pitches it as “THE BEST STEERING LOCK EVER - GUARANTEED TO PUT ANY CAR THIEF OFF NICKING YOUR CAR!” What may have started as a joke, ended up with cold hard cash in his pocket. The man said that he got the idea when he came home from the gym one day and saw a pile of dirty underwear in the laundry. So he spread some Marmite onto a pair for effect and wrapped them around the wheel of his BMW.
