TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .
An unidentified 27-year-old Florida man, who lost a bet and set fire to a football jersey while he was wearing it.
The man was rushed to a local hospital for second and third-degree burns after watching the Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers game.
He had apparently made a friendly bet with his wife that they would burn the losing jersey.
Well apparently his team lost and he agreed to burn his losing team’s jersey.
But he decided to wear the jersey as it was burning.
He suffered third-degree burns on his right arm and right hand and second-degree burns to his back.
Family members pulled the jersey off the man and rushed him to the Indian River Medical Center.
Yes boys and girls, alcohol was involved.
AND THEN THERE’S …..
Ariel Contreras, 33, who broke into a car and left his pair of big, fake, green Incredible Hulk hands behind.
Contreras broke into a car in Pasco, Washington.
However, someone spotted him and confronted him, so he ran, but he left a set of Incredible Hulk hands attached to the steering wheel.
The car owner says the Hulk hands were not there before the robbery.
Officers tracked him down a few blocks away and he was arrested for vehicle prowling and possession of stolen property.
OR HOW ABOUT …..
Three women from China, who went to South Korea to get plastic surgery, then weren’t allowed back in China, because they looked so much different than their passport photos.
Apparently the ladies didn’t think this thing through.
Despite having all their tickets and documents ready, the trio were unable to prove that they were the same people in the photos because the treatment had left their faces so swollen.
They were detained at passport control and it is unclear whether or not the women have been allowed to return to China.
OKAY, ONE MORE …..
Barry Clapperton, 40, who called in a bomb threat, because he couldn’t afford the double meat on his sandwich.
While dining at the famous Primanti Bros. restaurant in Pittsburgh, Clapperton realized he had double the meat on his sandwich and apparently he couldn’t afford that.
So instead of telling the server about his dilemma, he decided to phone in a bomb threat.
Apparently several patrons heard him make the call.
When police arrived, they ended up coming for Clapperton, instead of the bomb.
He tried to run and police had to taze him.
He was arrested on several charges, including making threats to use weapons of mass destruction and escape.
