Houston's Five Funniest Crimes of 2013

People do a lot of stupid things, but as the year draws to a close, we decided to stop and remember that some of the exceptionally stupid criminal things people have done in the year of 2013 were also funny. As the saying goes, some things change, but you can count on people to try and get away with some particularly brainless things. (That may be a saying we just made up, but the point is it's charming how people think pulling some pretty dumb stuff won't end with them in the back of cop car. Charming.)
