And we think we do dumb ****!
Here is the glorious Winner:


When his 38 - caliber revolver failed to fire at his intended victim

during a hold-up in Long Beach, California , would-be robber James

Elliot did something that can only inspire wonder.

He peered down the barrel and tried the trigger again. This time it


And now, the Honorable Mentions:


The chef at a hotel in Switzerland lost a finger in a meat-cutting machine and submitted a claim to his insurance company.

The company, expecting negligence, sent out one of its men to have a

look for himself. He tried the machine and he also lost a finger.

The chef's claim was approved.


A man who shoveled snow for an hour to clear a space for his car during a blizzard in Chicago returned with his vehicle to find a woman had taken the space.

Understandably, he shot her.


After stopping for drinks at an illegal bar, a Zimbabwean bus driver found that the 20 mental patients he was supposed to be transporting from Harare to Bulawayo had escaped.

Not wanting to admit his incompetence, the driver went to a nearby bus stop and offered everyone waiting there a free ride.

He then delivered the passengers to the mental hospital, telling the staff that the patients were very excitable and prone to bizarre fantasies.

The deception wasn't discovered for 3 days.


An American teenager was in the hospital recovering from serious head wounds received from an oncoming train.

When asked how he received the injuries, the lad told police that he was simply trying to see how close he could get his head to a moving train before he was hit.


A man walked into a Louisiana Circle-K, put a $20 bill on the counter, and asked for change.

When the clerk opened the cash drawer, the man pulled a gun and asked for all the cash in the register, which the clerk promptly provided.

The man took the cash from the clerk and fled, leaving the $20 bill on the counter.

The total amount of cash he got from the drawer: $15. (If someone points a gun at you and gives you money, is a crime committed?)


Seems an Arkansas guy wanted some beer pretty badly. He decided that he'd just throw a cinder block through a liquor store window, grab some booze, and run.

So he lifted the cinder block and heaved it over his head at the window. The cinder block bounced back and hit the would-be thief on the head, knocking him unconscious.

The liquor store window was made of Plexiglas, and the whole event was caught on videotape.


As a female shopper exited a New York convenience store, a man grabbed her purse and ran.

The clerk called 911 immediately, and the woman was able to give them a detailed description of the snatcher.

Within minutes, the police apprehended the purse snatcher. They put him in the car and drove back to the store.

The thief was then taken out of the car and told to stand there for a positive ID.

To which he replied, "Yes, officer, that's her. That's the lady I stole the purse from."


The Ann Arbor News crime column reported that a man walked into a Burger King in Ypsilanti, Michigan, at 5 a.m., flashed a gun, and demanded cash.

The clerk turned him down because he said he couldn't open the cash register without a food order.

When the man ordered onion rings, the clerk said they weren't available for breakfast.

The man, frustrated, walked away.



When a man attempted to siphon gasoline from a motor home parked on a Seattle street, he got much more than he bargained for.

Police arrived at the scene to find a very sick man curled up next to a motor home near spilled sewage.

A police spokesman said that the man admitted to trying to steal gasoline and plugged his siphon hose into the motor home's sewage tank by mistake.

The owner of the vehicle declined to press charges, saying that it was the best laugh he'd ever had. :roll:

This one should be on the list !!!

things seems to totally escape some people. I'd love to see how the trip ended up but I feel confident he ended up in a ravine somewhere wo ndering why bad things seems to always happen to him.
(Scroll Down!!!)

He's hooked up and ready to fly!! It's amazing how the extra weight really smoothed out the ride in the truck. He did have to air up the rear tires a bit (around 160 psi)

He added some heavy-duty chain for extra support on the tailgate (note that he used the "Heavy-Duty 'S' hooks to attach the chain) He also paid-up for some BIG 5/16 sheetmetal screws to attach the frame to the tailgate. Yeah, he knows it's overkill, but he didn't want the possibility of having an accident.

Much of his time was spent on his front porch whittling down that MASSIVE 4x4 board to fit precisely into the ball mount receiver. Also note that he used a 14" piece of 1x4 to help distribute the load more evenly--"YOU CAN"T BE TOO SAFE, YOU KNOW!!". " It cost a little more, but you just can't be too safe when pulling a trailer of this magnitude !!".
Look out Utah, ‘cause here he comes!!!!
