Doofus Of The Day #539

Today's winner is from Vallejo in California.

At about 6 a.m., a groundskeeper of Blue Rock Springs Park heard a man screaming when he arrived at work. He then called the police to investigate.

. . .

The man told police that he had been stuck in the [child's] swing since 9 p.m. Friday after he allegedly made a $100 bet with his friends. He proceeded to lube himself with laundry detergent to get into the swing, police said.

The friends then reportedly left him swinging through the night.

There's more at the link.

A couple of points for our hero doofus:

  1. If you have to lube yourself to squeeze into a swing's leg holes, getting out of them isn't likely to be easy, or painless, or fun.
  2. With friends like those, who needs enemies?

Emergency Services should send him a bill for WAAAAY more than $100.00.

Something tells me that there's more to this story. I don't want to hear it, of course, but I just get the feeling that there were no friends and there was no bet.

Ahh, buddies. Who else is going to get you into a situation where you make headlines that you will never be able to live down?
