Moron of the Week Award #12
October 9, 2009 by admncc
The “Moron of the Week Award” is back after a short vacation. And wow, do I have a great one for you today!
Congratulations to Jackie Knott, of Alabama, for being this week’s award-winner. And thanks to Leo Nevoli for bringing this story to my attention.
According to an article by The Smoking Gun, Knott was arrested on October 3rd for “allegedly having her teenage daughter ride in a cardboard box atop her minivan as it traveled along an interstate highway.” Knott told police officers that her 13-year-old daughter, Haley, “was serving as a human paperweight to keep the box from falling off the vehicle.”
Knott also told police officers, according to an article by The Huffington Post, that “it was safe” to have her daughter ride on the roof “because she had the box secured to the van with a clothes hanger.”
Um, yeah, yikes, do I need to say anything else? Jackie, have you ever heard of breaking down a box?
Happy Columbus Day everyone!
