What a Fucking Jackass

jackass.jpgOut in Wisconsin, where their winters are so long and cold that apparently they have nothing better to do than light one another on fire, a couple of dumbasses attempted to replicate a stunt from the film Jackass and one man found himself in the hospital.

Jared Anderson suffered serious burns to his hands and genitals when his “pal,” Randall Peterson sprayed lighter fluid on his junk and lit him on fire. Anderson, who was drunk (no shit?) volunteered for the stunt after watching the movie. And now, Peterson has been charged with felony battery and first-degree reckless endangerment.

After Peterson lit his friend on fire, Anderson ran to the bathroom and jumped in the bathtub to put the flames out. But this is the question I have: What the fuck did these guys expect to happen? You douse your testicles in a flammable liquid and light them on fire, caveman physics might suggest that you’re going to be singing Great Balls of Fire within a matter of seconds. Where, exactly, is the humor inherent to the idea? I mean, unless they videotaped it, put it up on YouTube, and let the rest of us laugh at Anderson’s wicked dumbassery. OK – yeah. I can see where that might be funny.

You know what else is funny? Driving a six-inch nail through your temple. Go ahead – try it. It’s hilarious.

Re: Title of Post

Not to nitpick or anything, but I believe he'd now be a non-fucking jackass.

"Goddamn idiot" should still (and always!) be appropriate, though.
