That guy who drove around eating iPhone-shaped cookies to prank cops was predictably pulled over.

Yes, all it got you was widespread coverage on social media

Yesterday, I talked to you about Randy Liedtke, an LA-based comedian who had the bright idea to bake cookies in the shape of iPhones so that he could go driving with them and get pulled over for using a phone while operating a vehicle:

That guy who drove around eating iPhone-shaped cookies to prank cops was predictably pulled over.

I'm sorry you couldn't afford the gold-icing iPhone, Randy.

As virtually everyone on the Internet pointed out, this was a pretty funny concept that was virtually guaranteed to piss off police officers and result in an arrest. As you can see from Randy's tweet above, he says it has. (Then again, he recently fooled the entire Internet by pretending to be Pace Salsa getting into a Twitter fight with another comedian, Kyle Kinane, who was also fooled. So, take this entire story with a grain of skepticism.) Anyway, yesterday afternoon, Randy says he put his plan into action and got into his car with his cookies:

I'm sure it will be something really unexpected.

Cops. They never arrest you when you need it.
 

This would have also been a satisfying ending to the story.

I don't think it counts if you're pulled over for illegal turns and pursuing cops, Randy.
 

How many times have we all said that?

Don't use all caps, man. Cops can sense that shit and it makes them nervous.
 

Let's be honest, it sounds like he didn't like your cookie very much.
 

Maybe someone from CHiPs would have enjoyed it more.

Unrelated: that's a really well-composed selfie with that police sign in the background.
 

What do you think? Was it worth it? Would you trade paying the parking tickets you apparently already owed for Internet fame? Did Randy just throw a cookie on the ground and then take a picture in front of an LAPD station? How hungry for cookies are you right now? As hungry as I am? I really doubt it.
