Not the Irish joke

BBC says, "'A Leeds man has been dubbed the city's "dumbest criminal" by a councillor for posting videos of anti-social behaviour on the YouTube website.
Andrew Kellett, 23, from Stanks Drive, Swarcliffe, published 80 videos and was given an interim anti-social behaviour order (Asbo) by Leeds magistrates.
Kellett has been previously convicted of various offences but the Asbo stops him from boasting of his activities.
The clips include Kellett being driven in a speeding car at more than 140 mph.
Councillor Les Carter, chair of Safer Leeds - a partnership between police and local authorities aimed at cutting crime - said: "Kellett must be in the running to be Leeds' dumbest criminal.
"In the last three years we have seen a 32% reduction in crime in Leeds. If more criminals were as obliging, the city would be even safer."
Leeds City Council have secured an interim Asbo against Kellett although he claims he was simply a bystander filming events.
The council said that other YouTube videos showed Kellett refusing to pay a taxi driver the right fare, being driven away from a petrol station apparently without paying, and racing other cars.
The terms of the Asbo include not to participate in, or encourage others to participate in, the driving of vehicles in a dangerous or anti-social manner.
He is also prevented from posting any image or description of unlawful activity on the internet."

So Paddy. You are off the hook. Puddin is the dumbo.
