    Just for Fun - Stupidity Illustrated

    1. WILL THE REAL DUMMY PLEASE STAND UP?
    AT&T fired President John Walter after nine months, saying he lacked
    intellectual leadership. He received a $26 million severance package.
    Perhaps it's not Walter who's lacking intelligence.


    2. WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM OUR FRIENDS:
    Police in Oakland, California spent two hours attempting to subdue a gunman who had barricaded himself inside his home. After firing ten tear gas canisters, officers discovered that the man was standing beside them in the police line, shouting, "Please come out and give yourself up."


    3. WHAT WAS PLAN B???
    An Illinois man, pretending to have a gun, kidnapped a motorist and forced him to drive to two different automated teller machines, wherein the kidnapper proceeded to withdraw money from his own bank accounts.


    4. THE GET AWAY!
    A man walked into a Topeka, Kansas, Kwik Stop, and asked for all the money in the cash drawer. Apparently, the take was too small, so he tied up the store clerk and worked the counter himself for three hours until police showed up and grabbed him.


    5. DID I SAY THAT?
    Police in Los Angeles had good luck with a robbery suspect who just couldn't control himself during a lineup. When detectives asked each man in the lineup to repeat the words: "Give me all your money or I'll shoot," the man shouted, "That's not what I said!"


    6. ARE WE COMMUNICATING??
    A man spoke frantically into the phone, "My wife is pregnant and her
    contractions are only two minutes apart!" "Is this her first child?" the
    doctor asked. "No!" the man shouted, "This is her husband!"


    7. NOT THE SHARPEST TOOL IN THE SHED!!
    In Modesto, California, Steven Richard King was arrested for trying to hold up a Bank of America branch without a weapon. King used a thumb and a finger to simulate a gun, but fortunately, he failed to keep his hand in his pocket.


    8. AND, THE GRAND FINALE
    Last summer, down on Lake Isabella, located in the high desert, an hour east of Bakersfield, California, some folks, new to boating, were having a problem. No matter how hard they tried, they couldn't get their brand new 22 ft. boat going. It was very sluggish in almost every maneuver, no matter how much power was applied. After about an hour of trying to make it go, they putted to a nearby marina, thinking someone there could tell them what was
    wrong. A thorough topside check revealed everything in perfect working condition. The engine ran fine, the out drive went up and down, and the prop was the correct size and pitch. So, one of the marina guys jumped in the water to check underneath. He came up choking on water, he was laughing so hard. Under the boat, still strapped securely in place, was the trailer!

    the Grand Finale happens more than you think to new boaters that think they know everything!!! haha
    so funny though!

    (My uncle it happened too)
    or no, i mean my Cousin, haha
    my uncle was trying to teach his son ( my cousin) how to launch a boat when he back downed the trailer too fast and it came off the hitch, my uncle was too embarassed to stand by and help so he made my cousin slowly put away to another boat launch so all the other boaters waiting didn't give em crap, what a sight to see though!

    I have to wonder how they strapped the trailer to the boat without the straps showing above the waterline and across the deck?

    sounds way out there. But I have seen some folks do some really foolish things too.
