Welcome to Scotland, where people greet you with a smile, even if they just killed a guy.

This is easily the greatest tale involving axes, murder and Scottish people since 1993's So I Married An Axe Murderer. Dan Thompson and Gary Kerr both live in Edinburgh, Scotland, where they work in Thompson's garage shop, the Tomson Motor Company. The garage is located on an adorable little side lane called Giles St.

Leaving aside the fact that Mr. Thompson apparently thought "Thompson" was too hard for Scots to spell, these two used their know-how and can-do attitudes to quickly stage a brutal murder when they recognized the Google Maps car coming down the road by its distinctive huge f-ing tower on top.

Here's the view as the Google Car first starts getting close enough to see them.

"This opportunity wasn't coming around very often, so Gary grabbed a pick axe handle and we ran out into the street," Thompson told the Edinburgh News. "We decided really quickly what to do and I lay down while Gary stood over me with a pick axe handle. I wish we'd [had] a little more time, because we would have went out mob-handed and really staged an elaborate tableau for the camera."
