Sunday in the garden…..the weather has finally gotten cooler and stays there…..I have eaten the last of the tomatoes from the garden….what to do? What to do? Time to write about an affliction that strikes every second or so….STUPIDITY!
I could write about the present day political system but that is too easy…..no I would like to write about individuals that have their heads firmly up their butts before they act.
I live in Mississippi and use to think that stupid was unique to my state…I was mistaken….but for instance….about 25 years ago we had a Summer Festival that had cook-offs, rides, music and a helicopter ride around the harbor and along the beach.
A local resident was hammered out of his mind and went of the chopper ride when he landed and the chopper was idling waiting for the next passenger this drunkard was so stoked that he was yelling and jumped up with his arms above his head…..you guessed it the chopper blades removed 3 fingers…..his reaction was “my fingers looked like little trumpets”……you guessed it again….the chopper ride was eliminated for the next festival.
I have written on several occasions about “stupid” acts by my fellow Mississippians……(you really need to read these to see just what I am going on about)……
Like I have written previously……the stupid in Mississippi are not alone…..
Reminder to self: When setting up booby traps in your home, make sure you don’t accidentally set them off yourself. One North Carolina man failed to heed that advice and ended up getting shot Monday morning, the Gaston Gazette reports. Police say Edwin Smith, 68, had rigged a shotgun facing his back door. After going outside to feed squirrels around 11:30am, he opened the door and the gun fired, hitting him in the right arm. It’s not clear whether he forgot about the booby trap or if the trap malfunctioned. Either way, “I’ve never seen anything quite like this,” a captain with the Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office says.
“I blew my arm off,” Smith can be heard saying in a 911 call obtained by WCNC. First responders, who went through the home carefully to make sure there were no other booby traps, found him severely wounded but alert, and he was transferred to a hospital in nearby Shelby. One of his neighbors says Smith “stood up for our neighborhood when drugs and bad people started moving in,” and WCNC also has a photo of a large sign on Smith’s property warning “crack heads, meth heads, heroin users, drug dealers,” “anyone doing criminal activity,” and “illegal aliens” to “stay the hell out & off this private road.” (A pot farmer was done in by his own booby trap.)
All I can say…..”You Can’t Fix Stupid”!
I gonna sit and watch the garden grow…..with silver bells, cockle shells and a bunch of damn weeds…LOL
Have A Day……Be Well, Be Safe…….
