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.
