Where’s Waldo?

A British man wanted for a driving offence couldn’t help taunting cops as he eluded them, posting pics of himself dressed up as the Where’s Waldo? character and declaring himself the hide-and-seek champion for 2016-17. J.J. McMenamin, 30, dressed up as Waldo and posted photos to his Facebook account, after turning his pursuit into a game. He eventually turned himself into police — while wearing Waldo’s familiar red-and-white toque and sweater, plus his black-framed glasses. “One of my mates had sent me a picture of Where’s Wally on Facebook and I superimposed my face on Wally’s body and made it my profile picture,” he told the UK Sun. “I thought I’d wear the Wally costume one last time.” McMenamin decided to have a little fun with the cops after they spent the weekend looking for him when he failed to turn up for a court date in North Yorkshire on a driving while disqualified charge. The cops used sniffer dogs and a helicopter, according to the BBC, but had no success. He posted a few pics to Facebook of him wearing the Waldo gear and even included a video that features the Lionel Richie song Hello, laughing at the line “Is it me you’re looking for?” Eventually, the cheeky bugger was persuaded to give himself up.
