F***in’ locks, how do they work?

January 18, 2011

For your amusement, we present a selection of images that highlight the average simpleton’s apparent inability to summon the common sense necessary when securing property with a lock. If you’re in any way similar to us, looking at each and every example will result in a short burst of laughter, quickly followed by a painlessly brief period of depression as the perpetrator’s confused (or not, depending on the severity of his/her idiocy) face is imagined. It’s also worth remembering as you wipe the lone tear from your cheek that this is but a tiny snapshot of a problem that will continue to plague the land for as long as simpletons, locks and personal property exist.

(Should you happen to be one of those simpletons: Look @ these lock fails LOL.)

  18. what the f… is that

  19. Two thoughts, first is that many of these seem rather legit. Second is that the rest would all probably deter most thieves. The only one that is a question is the last one, not enough room to slip it off without lifting up the bike, and just like the rest with the cable through a tire, could you imagine the result of driving with it still locked?
