The Rocketeer

Just when you think that life couldn't possibly be as stupid as cartoons:

"Man hurt using explosives in backyard sledding stunt"Turns out Nimrod had a special treat planned for his friends/guests at his sledding party:
"The man is thought to have constructed the backpack from a used automotive muffler, which he filled with gasoline and gunpowder...(h)e asked another person to light a wick and then began to sled down a hill. At some point during the ride, the device exploded.”
Oh, wait - now here's a shock: "Before the accident the man had been drinking."

And we used to laugh at the Road Runner cartoons because certainly no one could be as creatively dumb as friggin' Wile E. Coyote.The stupid, it burnnns, my precioussss...

I'm no Jeff Foxworthy fan, but I do think he was right when he said you might be a redneck if any of your relatives died shortly after saying "hey, everybody! watch this!"
