In the.. humm.. thats not too bright department.

SAN JOSE, Costa Rica — Usama bin Laden take note: You wouldn't be safe in Costa Rica. A startled taxi driver shot and wounded a jokester wearing a plastic mask of the Al Qaeda leader, police said Tuesday.

Leonel Arias, 47, told police he was playing a practical joke by donning the Bin Laden mask, toting his pellet rifle and jumping out to scare drivers on a narrow street in his hometown, Carrizal de Alajuela (search), about 20 miles north of San Jose.
Now if that happend in the States, oh lordy, the driver would have been charged with some nonsence crime, the family of the shot man would be on CNN pleading that he didn't have to get shot because he always is playing some sort of practial joke. The man shot would have sued the cab company, the gun maker and the makers of the Bin-laden mask.

Oh yeah, and a bunch of dirty hippy freaks would have been waiting nearby to see that no Hawks were injured in this shooting.
