Goofs and Screw-ups
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.
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.
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.
behind the breaking and super gluing of the Tutenkamen mask sounds like something out of a sitcom. Unfortunately it really happened.

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.

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.”
It is always embarrassing when a credit card
is declined, but one would imagine even more so when you are the leader of the free world. Good thing Michelle had his back. I guess he ordered the frog legs
A moron in Pennsylvania shot a gun
into his neighbor's house while trying to clear the chamber. He stated in court
that firing the gun was the only way he knew to unload it. Some people should not be allowed out on their own!
In 1925 and 1926, Popular Science
featured the antics of "John and Mary Newlywed," a young married couple so stupid they did everything wrong around the house. In the instance above from March 1926
, John and Mary--despite having perfected anti-gravity as attested to by the unsupported car--are about to blow themselves up and smother themselves with gas fumes.
I regret the Newlyweds did not have a longer run. They would have been the Gallant-less Goofuses of the hobbyist set.
Russia sent 5 geckos
, amongst other small creatures, to space in order to study the animals sex habits in zero gravity. The satellite was recently brought back and the geckos were all dead, possibly due to freezing. Ok, first, if you are studying sexual activity why send an odd number of participants. Second, who did not know it is too cold for geckos in space? Yeah, yeah, they knew, but they sure didn't prepare for it sufficiently. Thirdly, were they insured by Geico??
