The massive 250million dollars for security at the APEC summit in Sydney didn’t keep out “Ben Laden” and his convoy, who made it past two checkpoints and almost all the way to Bush’s hotel at the APEC summit before he was arrested…

Yup. the Chaser boys are at it again.

The Aussie TV Show, “The Chaser’s War on Everything” is famous notorious for their practical jokes.

This time, the wild bunch outfitted a motorcade, complete with motorcycles with fake Canadian Flags, and got past two major check points with some obviously fake ID’s before someone got suspicious and arrested “Ben Laden”…and the rest of the gagsters.

The Age reports:

IF ONLY the police had stopped to read the fine print on the “APEC 2007 Official Vehicle” sticker. “This vehicle belongs to a member of The Chaser’s War on Everything. This dude likes trees and poetry and certain types of carnivorous plants excite him.”

Two police security checkpoints into the sniper-ridden “ring of steel” later, and it took a comedian in an Osama bin Laden outfit to rouse Sydney’s $150 million APEC security monster into action.

One laid back official pointed out that the “multi layer” security actually did work: they did get arrested eventually…

Now, doesn’t that make you feel safer?
