On mobile phones.

There’s this old yarn about a man who was in a bar, merrily drinking away, when his mobile phone rang. It was his wife, on the other end. “How did you find out I was at the bar?” he enquired incredulously.

I thought this was dumb, but Police in South Africa's capital, Pretoria, claim to have caught the "dumbest criminal" this year. (Source : BBC News)

The man walked into a station to report that he had been held up at gunpoint by a gang who had stolen his mobile phone.

But when the detective phoned the number of the phone reportedly stolen, it rang in the complainant's pocket.

My advice to all of you is to keep your mobile phones in silent mode. Just in case you have to carry it in your pocket to report its loss to the Police.
