Does anyone else check this thread just to make sure you're not the moron if the week?

No?

Just me then?

Okay.

Okay.

I only think about doing that due to a PTSD-reflex from a local car forum I used to be on. That thread was called C*** of the Week and mostly featured forum users targeted by the ruling brigade of dudebros.

I thought I had a lifetime award so was ineligible for the weekly version.

Can I play? 

I nominate this dinkus: https://whdh.com/news/police-man-with-revoked-license-crashes-brothers-ferrari-in-weymouth/

A 50 year old with a suspended license tried to play real-life Outrun with his brother's Ferrari... and failed miserably by smacking a Corolla and wedging it under a Hyundai Santa Fe. If you know the South Shore of Boston, this is "Peak Weymouth" behavior. 

I still can't believe this didn't happen in EbonyAndIvory's yard a few towns away!

I don't have to look. I know the truth every morning.

This week, I nominate: Myself.

Had the following conversation with a fellow driver at this weekend's autocross:

I'm running start. He pulls up, grinning from ear to ear.

Him: "Just kicked out my passenger and was 2 seconds faster on the last run."

Me: "Good Lord, who was your passenger, Fat Albert?"

Him: "No, my wife."

Me: "Oh"

I'm a past winner myself.

I prosecuted drunk driving cases for about 7 or 8 years, so I thought I'd heard every dumb excuse there was.  I was wrong.

I wasn't drinking and driving . . . I only drank at the stoplights.

BTW - my favorite personal experience was the dude doing field sobriety tests while dressed as a Roman soldier, armored skirt and all.  Don't drive drunk on any night, but especially not Halloween.  The MVR was a hoot.  If the defense attorney had been a friend, I would have tried to see how many references to famous Romans I could work into the trial, but sadly, he was sort of a prick, so it wasn't as fun as it could have been. 

EDIT:  And, yes, long time no updates, primarily because I'm abiding by the "no politicians" rule.

Some American decided to make contact with the uncontacted Sentinelese people for the purpose of converting them to Christianity (which can only add to the enormity of my facepalm). Contacting the Sentinelese is not just super-illegal but a stupendously terrible idea for a laundry list of reasons, one of which is that what little is known about them is that they react to outsiders with instant and unrelenting hostility on sight. Guess what happened.

After a 5 month break, bringing this thread back for "unknown dude" for FIGHTING THE EASTER BUNNY.  There are only two possible outcomes:  1. you kick the Easter Bunny's butt, in which case, do you really get bragging rights? OR  2. like this guy, you get completely whooped by the Easter Bunny, in which case, you can never really show your face again. 

News report: bunny beat down

I knew before clicking on the link that it would be Florida. It's always Florida. And no, I didn't notice the license plate either (until now).

I was at work when this happened. There is always one screen dedicated to news on the huge video wall. I watched this play out in (near) real time.

Edit: I just noticed the domain name. That was totally unintentional. It was literally the first search result I found.

Well, the circle is complete, the bunny has been identified.  I'm pretty sure the writer of this article put in "Florida Man" just to be sure it gets hits for the "Florida Man Challenge".  If you were born on 4/22, you're now golden for the "Florida Man Challenge".

In reply to stanger_missle :

Not questioning the resisting arrest part etc.  But in this day and age is it still indecent exposure to be naked on a beach?  I know there's a guy in the UK who has gone around nude for decades and has been arrested multiple times.  In the end I think he ended up at the international court of human rights to protect his right to be nude and won.

Edit.  Nope I was wrong, he when to court and lost, he's spent lot's of time in prison.  Below from Wiki:

On 28 October 2014, the European Court of Human Rights ruled that European laws protecting privacy and freedom of expression did not apply to Gough's naked rambling

The key thing I want to know about that story is whether or not he was naked in prison?
