    TOP 8 MORONS OF 2008

    1.. WILL THE REAL DUMMY PLEASE STAND UP?
    AT&T fired President John Walter after nine months, saying he lacked intellectual leadership. He received a $26 million severance package. Perhaps it's not Walter who's lacking intelligence.

    2. WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM OUR FRIENDS.
    Police in Oakland , CA spent two hours attempting to subdue a gunman who had barricaded himself inside his home. After firing ten tear gas canisters, officers discovered that the man was standing beside them in the police line, shouting , ' Please come out and give yourself up.'

    3. WHAT WAS PLAN B???
    An Illinois man, pretending to have a gun, kidnapped a motorist and forced him to drive to two different automated teller machines, wherein the kidnapper proceeded to withdraw money from his own bank accounts.

    4. THE GETAWAY!
    A man walked into a Topeka , Kansas Kwik Stop and asked for all the money in the cash drawer. Apparently, the take was too small , so he tied up the store clerk and worked the counter himself for three hours until police showed up and grabbed him..

    5. DID I SAY THAT???
    Police in Los Angeles had good luck with a robbery suspect who just couldn't control himself during a lineup. When detectives asked each man in the lineup to repeat the words: 'Give me all your money or I 'll shoot', the man shouted, 'that's not what I said!'

    6. ARE WE COMMUNICATING? ??
    A man spoke frantically into the phone: 'My wife is pregnant and her contractions are only two minutes apart'. 'Is this her first child?' the doctor asked. 'No!' the man shouted, 'This is her husband!'

    7. NOT THE SHARPEST TOOL IN THE SHED!
    In Modesto , CA , Steven Richard King was arrested for trying to hold up a Bank of America branch without a weapon. King used a thumb and a finger to simulate a gun. Unfortunately, he failed to keep his hand in his pocket. (hellooooooo) !

    8. THE GRAND FINALE!!!
    Last summer, down on Lake Isabella, located in the high desert, an hour east of Bakersfield, CA, some folks, new to boating, were having a problem. No matter how hard they tried, they couldn't get their brand new 22 foot boat, going. It was very sluggish in almost every maneuver, no matter how much power they applied. After about an hour of trying to make it go, they putted into a nearby marina, thinking someone there may be able to tell them what was wrong. A thorough topside check revealed
    everything in perfect working condition The engine ran fine, the out-drive went up and down, and the propeller was the correct size and pitch. So, one of the marina guys jumped in the water to check underneath. He came up choking on water, he was laughing so hard.

    NOW REMEMBER...THIS IS TRUE.

    Under the boat, still strapped securely in place, was the trailer!

    The following happened in Illinois and not California.

    Someone we knew hit a postal truck at an intersection.
    He was drunk as heck and ran a red light.
    He got out of the car and stood at the side of the intersection next to the traffic light and waited for the police to show up.
    When they did show up he was able to give an "eyewitness" account of the accident.
    He told the police that the guy in the car was at fault because that guy had run the red light and hit the postal truck.
    The police spent a half an hour talking to him and trying to find the driver of the car.
    After searching the car and calling it in as a hit and run they finally figured out he was the driver of the car in question.

    After all this happened our friend said he couldn't understand why they had gotten so angry when they found out he owned the car in question after being so helpful with the investigation. ;D

    Reading this reminded me of that incident and made me hear him tell his story all over again.
