Goofs and Screw-ups


Mom of the year saw a spider on her shoulder so she jumped out of her moving car (yes she was driving) with her 9 year old son in the back seat. The boy climbed over the seat and tried to get the vehicle stopped. Unfortunately he hit the gas by mistake and rammed a school bus.

Third Time’s A Charm

Trucker hits 3, count 'em, 3 overpasses with the crane he's hauling before he stops. I guess 2 wasn't enough and 4 would have been overkill.

Nudist Lost In Woods

A man staying at a nudist camp in the Poconos got lost in the woods. He was missing from some time Monday to Wednesday evening. Three days. Nude. In the woods. Bet it wasn't the vacation he planned.

Never Inject Stuff In Your Stuff

Injecting your penis with vasoline to make it appear larger is a very bad idea. The description of the surgery necessary to effect repairs is cringe-worthy.

Smoking Is Deadly

If you are going to haul gun powder around on the front seat of your car then perhaps DON'T light a cigarette. Or better yet, don't haul gun powder around at all. Darwin Award averted for now.

Can’t Fix Stupid

Using lights and siren to jump to the front of the fast food drive-thru line is sketchy behaviour as a cop. But when you aren't and an off duty real cop sees you its a felony. Oh and he admitted to the arresting officer that he uses the lights and sirens to beat red lights as well.

Superglue Fixes Everything

The story behind the breaking and super gluing of the Tutenkamen mask sounds like something out of a sitcom. Unfortunately it really happened.

Karlsson-on-the-Roof from Maripuka85 on Vimeo.

Young boy subject to hallucinations is befriended by drunken fairy godfather. In Russian, but that hardly matters.

The German live-action version is even odder.

Wikipedia entry here.

Coffee Creamer Hitler

Swiss retailer Migros has apologized for placing pictures of Hitler and Mussolini on some of the coffee creamers it sells, calling it an "inexcusable blunder" and promising that "in the future we’ll be sure to sharpen our controls."

However, they haven't really explained why they decided to use the Hitler/Mussolini photos in the first place. They simply said that, "We weren’t observant enough to notice the picture of Hitler. But in retrospect, we should have paid more attention.”
