Today's Doofus is from Arkansas.
A mother who drank 13 beers before a psychological evaluation failed to recover custody of her three young children despite claiming she wasn't drunk because she "can drink like a fish."
The woman wanted to get the children back from her husband's stepmother. The Arkansas Court of Appeals rejected her arguments Wednesday, citing addictions, frequent absences and criminal activity to support her habits. It said the woman made no meaningful efforts to restructure her life.
Uh . . . yeah. Drinking 13 beers before a court-ordered evaluation might be described as shooting oneself in the metaphorical foot!
