We intend to study this and learn from his mistakes when we try it.

Don't laugh. We've considered pulling this maneuver just to get out of brunch. God knows what we'd pull after a two-week bender (we assume it was a bender, otherwise, what a waste of a good fake kidnapping attempt). The NY Post reports that the confrontation-averse BF first told them he'd been abducted by two men in a light blue minivan, and the men minivanned him around for a couple weeks before dropping him off, leaving him with the roll of duct tape still dangling from his bound wrists and a really unbelievable story to tell his cops and girlfriend. Upon release, the man will likely be under house arrest, at least until his girlfriend decides he's learned his lesson.
