It’s not the dopey high jinks that caught my eye. It was the looney dateline. Get a load of the Associated Press report:

LOS LUNAS, N.M. — Three workers at a Burger King restaurant were arrested after two police officers discovered that the hamburgers they ordered were sprinkled with marijuana.

The Isleta Police Department officers ate about half of their burgers Sunday before discovering marijuana on the meat. The officers used a field test kit to confirm the substance was pot, then went to a hospital for a medical evaluation.

Three Burger King employees were arrested and charged with possession of marijuana and aggravated battery on an officer, a felony.
