We've all heard stories about stupid criminals, but this one definitely takes the cake.  It was just before 7:00am Friday morning when a man tried to break into a bar in Chicago called The Shambles.  He was able to get the lock off the door, but he then spent close to three minutes struggling with the door to gain access to the establishment.  Why you ask?  Because this genius was pulling on a door that clearly said "PUSH."

One report says that the would-be burglar spent seven minutes removing the locking mechanism before his three minute battle with the door.  Apparently he decided to give up after 10 minutes.  By then his brain must have really been hurting him.
