    A drunk. A smoker. And an idiot. Quite the catch, eh ladies?

    Most likely this individual will eventually die smoking in bed. It's disturbing to note that if, by further stupid luck he causes a housefire through negligence/stupidity that kills anyone else he wouldn't be charged with anything serious.

    Yeah, that was a pretty good candidate for an award. Better luck next time, perhaps? (as long as he's the only winner, nobody else involved)

    This seems worthy of an honorable mention.

    i'd say not all smokers are this stupid, but everyone would gang up on me.

    not all drinkers either.

    i think the guy is just an idiot notwithstanding.

    Cut the guy some slack,
    it could have been the last cigarette in his pack.

    You'd hope. :p

    But I'm sure that's the last of his worries right now. ;)

    I completely agree. If this guy was willing to do this drunk I'm sure you could convince him to do it sober too. Just bet him $20 he wouldn't do it... out of the vehicle he goes!

    His drinking to inebriation explains a lot. Caused his lack common sense while in a moving car. Must of had a real craving. :eek: He's lucky that being so relaxed prevented serious illness. Hope that after being sober, if that occurs, he realized the peril of his actions.

    Remember kids, only you can help prevent forest fires.

    Nice work Jeff.

    My guess is that he's smoking right now.

    The guy was probably in a pickup truck with jugs of gasoline in the bed (is that the term, obviously not a pickup truck driver).... He was saving the city, can you imagine the explosion?


    Maybe I should just keep dreaming

    Sounds like something Homer Simpson would do after a drunken binge, Welcome to America, land of the foolish;)
    I wonder if he's lighting up now.

    Casting aside the fact that this guy from Arkansas is a half-breed idiot, how do you and your buddy Smokey account for the fact that 95% of all forest fires are caused by lightning strikes? Must be all those rugrats in Troop 109 wavin' those aluminum bats above treeline outside of Leadville, CO...

    Simply can't fathom how this guy would dive out of a car for a stick. Maybe it was the last of the Panama Red? Eerily similar to that case a few months back where the guy got decapitated on the drive home because he was so loaded and had his head out the window and a pole came along and POW!

    I thought it was the "deck" but that has to do with planes. Somebody call Philip Morris and get the guy a gig. Don't know what the weather was like in Foreman last night but wouldn't the icing on the cake be if it was absolutely raining sheets?

    I can't say that I feel sorry for the guy unless he somehow is retarded.

    hm... what could a conspiracy theorist say...

    "The man was actually leaping from the car because he was being held against his will by the driver, and was simply escaping. Also, the "cigarette" that he leaped after was in fact the rolled up notes describing a plot to kill thousands of people, which will soon be released to the public now that he has gotten it away from the people that were holding him."

    hehe... I love doing that with stupid news articles...

    If not previously diagnosed, then I think it might be a "a no brainer" now.

    If this guy had died, he would have been on the fast track to the Darwin Award...
