NZ - It was a case of love's labour's lost, 21st-century style. The man thought he was in for an early Christmas present when he got an alluring text offering him the friendly company of two young women.
They invited him around for some close attention, helpfully suggesting he get his gear off to save time. So off he went, reached the house, and threw his clothes through the front window prior to entering.
Trouble is, it was all a joke and the householder wasn't two little lovelies pining for passion, but someone else altogether - who promptly called the police.
The constabulary duly arrested the 31-year-old for being unlawfully on a property and he was later offered diversion.
Some time later the police caught up with the 17-year-old text sender, who was also offered diversion, for misusing a phone, when she appeared in the Palmerston North District Court last week.
