Those Happy Slapping Brits!

I saw a video on some website a few months ago featuring a guy who would steal cell phones from strangers and break them while they were in mid-conversation. It initially struck me as funny; who hasn't wanted to do that when people are talking irritatingly loud without any regard to the people around them?

Naturally, it's turned into a fad that's gotten out of hand. It actually made me think of Jimbo from "The Simpsons" ("This Little Wiggy"): "Videotaping our crime spree was the best idea we've ever had!"

Also see MSNBC's article ('Happy Slapping' Craze Worries British Officials) about the same stupid fad.
