Some days nothing goes right.

Dwayne Doolan, 31, and co-conspirator Peter Welsh, 32, had singled out Wright's Jewellers in Beaudesert, Australia, as a fat and fitting target for a smash-and-grab burglary. But, from start to finish, everything they did went wrong.

First, they tried shattering the front windows, which proved to be shatterproof. Then, they attempted to break through the back door, which turned out to be the wrong back door, belonging to another business. The correct back door was too well-armored for them.

But, what luck! They could still enter the next-door business, go into the basement, and break through the basement wall into Wright's! Yeah, they could--if they broke through the right basement wall.

Doolan and Welsh apparently became disoriented when they went downstairs and after Herculean efforts, finally succeeded in bustin' into the basement of a Kentucky Fried Chicken franchise.

True, they made off with some finger-lickin' chicken and about $2,600 cash, but that cloud of bad luck clung to 'em like, well, like the aroma of fried chicken. They were caught before they could enjoy either the money or an extra-crispy drumstick.
