News, but not the serious kind
Too many Singapore Slings, I guess…
Quick quiz: a REALLY stupid place to pass out drunk is…
a) at your wedding, just before your turn to say “I do”
b) in a third-grade classroom, even if it’s the second time you’ve done that grade
c) at the annual Taliban Board of Directors meeting
d) in an anti-government street protest while shooting your slingshot at army troops
Yeah I know, you’re saying, “Well Bob, ALL of those places are pretty stupid,” which is true enough. But I’m going to go with the last answer, because that’s the one I have some photos of.
As you can see here, this protester couldn’t decide between having a few drinks or flinging stones at the soldiers, so he did both at the same time.
But he didn’t JUST pass out. He really pushed the envelope on stupidity, passing out while still clutching his slingshot, thus making it fairly easy for the soldiers to figure out what he was up to.
And here’s my favorite part. He passed out next to his pal, who just kept on flinging stones and calling attention to their location. Lonnie, Lamar, you guys take a bow!
