Wink Funny from the Darwin awards

A 5-STAR STUPIDITY AWARD WINNER!

When a man attempted to siphon gasoline from a motor home parked on a Seattle street, he got much more than
he bargained for. Police arrived at the scene to find an ill man curled up next to a motor home near spilled sewage. A police spokesman said that the man admitted to trying to steal gasoline and plugged his siphon hose into the motor home's sewage tank by mistake. The owner of the vehicle declined to press charges, saying that it was the best laugh he'd ever had.

The snopes.com website is great. I sent it to my family and asked them to check it BEFORE they pass along the mis-information to me! My Mom, Dad, and Aunt are Internet newbies and fall for all that stuff. I've seen several of them recently!
