Sad Sacks

After searching the bowels of the Internet, one of our readers, Sugar, was able to find two strong competitors for this week’s “Moron of the Week Award.”  Enjoy and, as always, let us know who the bigger moron is.

Fishing License Guy – If you’d like, Peter Wann, of Alexandria, NC, is available to be your hired first mate for sport fishing expeditions.  However, you may not want to hire him when there is money on the line.  Wann and his teammates were recently participating in the “Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament” when they pulled in an 883-pound blue marlin.  Their catch was 137 inches long!  And what was on the line in this tournament?  $1,000,000!  They were going to win, right?  Wrong!  Wann had forgotten to renew his fishing license – a rule book must.  You can read the full story and see pictures of their catch here.  The bottom line – he tried to renew his license using a wireless connection from the boat, but tournament officials would not award his team the money.

Raccoon Lady – Leah Osborne from Oklahoma really is an animal lover.  In fact, she was kind enough to stop and pick up a raccoon she saw on the road.  However, when the animal “began to show a more animated side,” she let it out of the car.  It’s too bad that the police had already been called due to an animal being on the roadway.  Oh, that’s right; I forgot to mention that Osborne was drunk at the time – to the tune of nearly five times the legal limit (.37).  Things turned worse as Osborne became frightened of the raccoon, ran past the police officer, hid in muddy ditch and was subsequently arrested.  If a mug shot is worth a thousand words, click here to see it and read the full story.

    Yep, that’s an Okie chic all right. BTW drunk or sober, never try to handle a racoon, they do not appreciate your help and will make you pay for it. I know, I tried once with a baby coon that was drowning in a half empty swimming pool, how long it had been there is anyone’s guess but it appeared weak and harmless. Nevertheless, I took precautions and threw a heavy towel over it to pick it up, big mistake!

    Speaking of animals I have a plan to propose this great social media experiment to our animal shelter. I would appreciate your input on it.

  2. Sugar says:

    They are both morons!

  3. NeoConDon says:

    Excellent picks from Sugar…too hard to pick just one.

  4. TallElf says:

    Depending on the state and the season of game, you can lose more than 1million dollars as a prize. He is lucky. I would say that the gal who was under the DUI decimal system offense is the bigger moron. How do you think picking up a raccoon is a normal behavior? That is right up there with the people that believe that Skunks make good pets if you remove the stink sacs..

  5. Jen says:

    I pick raccoon girl – I mean, look at her, her eyes are saying “I’m a freakin’ moron!”

  6. Definitely raccoon girl!

  7. Zig the "People" person says:

    I love them both… They both need our understanding and help. Anyone can make a mistake, but when we keep pileing on…that’s our mistake. As long as he had his license when he got off the boat, who cares when he got it!

    I do not condone drunk driving. DD is dumb as it gets!

  8. that. is. me.

    i’d finally do something cool, but i’d have an expired license.

    Getting a really good laugh out of your site! I’m going to have to go with drunken racoon lady – her picture is hilarious as she wells up with tears – .37 really?!
