Security Door Taunts Hefty Cops

A recent remodeling of the National Police headquarters in Stockholm, Sweden is mistakenly shutting heavy cops out of the building.

CNN says a built-in scale located near the building's security entrance monitors the weight of incoming visitors so that only one person can pass through at a time. But there's a glitch in the system -- anyone weighing more than 230 pounds is met by a terse message: "Stop! One at a time!" The scale then seals off the door and leaves the weighty visitor bewildered by the automated insult.

Police spokesperson Linda Widmark says the scale is supposed to be adjustable up to 350 pounds. "We'll have to get that fixed," Widmark says. If by "fixed" she means knocking the weight down to 120 pounds and adding a host of new messages ("Whoooooaaaa there, tubby" ... "Time to lay off those Krispy Kremes big fella!" ... "Chunk? Is that you? Do the Truffle Shuffle!"), then I wholeheartedly agree. -- Mac
