...thus cheating Darwin.

Asshat. Any drunk behind the wheel deserves at LEAST to lose their car in the canal.
2004-12-24 09:16:04 PM  
Ummm... just because the reporting website is in Florida doesn't mean the Florida tag is appropriate...

This happened in Baton Rouge Louisiana...
2004-12-24 10:43:23 PM  
Meh, greenlighted and changed the tag on me? >.< Suuuuure, don't delete my post then about the bad tag, that would be too convenient for me.
2004-12-24 10:56:40 PM  
It's amazing that someone drunk thinks they can drive, and yet still wants McDonalds.

/Darwin will find this guy sooner or later
2004-12-25 01:55:51 AM  
why that son of a..
oh wait.. gotta finish reading the headline..

..biatch. Stupid drunk.
2004-12-25 04:10:51 AM  
I hate drunks that drive. They are more likely to crash into me and make me spill my drink.

/yeah, i know that was lame
2004-12-25 04:20:45 AM  
drinking and driving is cool. its the only D&D that is cool. i hate you people who hate on my D&D, yet think that your Dungeons and Dragons are cool? ever try to drive in a straight line after 25 beers? didn't think so. that is much tougher than casting magic missle against the darkness. i hate you nerds that don't drink.
2004-12-25 04:29:44 AM  
I love how nonchalantly they explain that he was arrested in the very last line of the article.
2004-12-25 04:37:07 AM  
Should have let the drunken asshat drown. "Would you like a life preserver with your fries?"
2004-12-25 05:41:20 AM  
Kudos to the employee that did manage to save the life of another person...even if that persson was a drunken low-life-it's still a life.
2004-12-25 05:42:41 AM  
dammit, the 's' key is doubling up ....ssorry for the sspelling error.
2004-12-25 05:51:34 AM  
"Broussard was arrested for driving while intoxicated."

And, maybe for not wearing a seat belt?
2004-12-25 06:21:46 AM  
If someone's an alcoholic it doesnt necessarily mean they should drown...yah he's an idiot but death? I say he probably needs something more like rehab...and a really really really hefty fine and also take away his liscense...
2004-12-25 06:31:10 AM  
ive nearly done this only not to save them ;)
2004-12-25 07:01:42 AM  
Why no hero tag?
2004-12-25 07:02:44 AM  

This is Fark- your compassion and understanding that issues are not black and white does not belong here.
2004-12-25 07:03:43 AM  
As for the article:

McDonalds workers: Truly they are kings among men.
2004-12-25 07:55:26 AM  

For someone to earn a Hero tag on fark the protagonist of the story must be a convenience store clerk who shoots several rounds of ammo into a 16 year old committing a crime. We must then further read that the 16 year old was doing it after threat of death from an older person. Further, we read that the antagonist's father is long dead and mother has cancer.
Only then is the man a hero.

Aidos massagelondon, have fun in ban land.
2004-12-25 09:00:30 AM  
I think I need a massage... oh wait nevermind.

No hero tag? He saved another human life, albeit someone we probably could've lived without.
2004-12-25 09:03:49 AM  
I bet the Hamburglar cut his brakes.

Robble robble.

i hope to god some sort of spam-trolling bot scans this page, then goes to every one of those sites, and signs up every address on the site to exploding spam!

it's e-karma.
2004-12-25 09:18:53 AM  
SaintOfKillers, good. Everytime someone who goes "meh" or ">.<" gets mistreated, abused or upset is a happy moment for me.
2004-12-25 09:25:07 AM  
Congratulations! You saved an asshat who will now go on to kill innocent people!

Actually, it's kind of AMUSING or IRONIC
2004-12-25 09:45:14 AM  
I so love my home town.

/hate McDonalds, no matter what town it's in.
2004-12-25 09:50:14 AM  
I have something in my hand that you can massage with your mouth.
Have you met the "You are a spamming prick, dont let me catch you on the"?
2004-12-25 09:54:18 AM  
Im pasting everyone of those into my Hosts FileSo that they will get a nice back at their own server.

Is "craniosacral therapy" when she puts her head up against my sack?
2004-12-25 09:57:15 AM  
Since html doesnt seem to be working, it would behoove everyone here to visit a REAL website:

cut and paste it

Maybe he saved the guy because he rolled away without paying.
2004-12-25 10:10:06 AM  
It wasn't the McD's on Essen Lane or Government Street (Baton Rouge)... those two locations are staffed by asshats.

...unless McD's has made some major improvments over the past year, as I've forgone fast food in favor of gyros and sushi.
2004-12-25 10:27:29 AM  
anyone see "anal escort"?

such a companion would be quite awkward at a party, dontcha think?
2004-12-25 10:30:54 AM  
you desevre a break today from, Mc Donalds
2004-12-25 10:39:34 AM  
heh! THe same spammer hit a tech forum on o'reilly net! Check it out: more anal escorts:
2004-12-25 10:45:29 AM  
I find it mildly interesting that the spam includes "". Probably because I'm sleepy.
2004-12-25 11:15:39 AM  
I smell a lawsuit. Somehow the McDonald's worker will end up getting sued for this, and lose.
2004-12-25 12:12:03 PM  
So this McJob prevented Darwin from doing his job?! What happens when you start preventing 'survival of the fittest'? Overpopulation! It's going to happen!
2004-12-25 12:15:57 PM  
Kudos to the employee that did manage to save the life of another person...even if that persson was a drunken low-life-it's still a life.

It's not that he saved the life of the asshat behind the wheel, it's that he saved the live(s) of the person/people this asshat surely would have hurt/killed had me made it through. If he hadn't passed out until just after he got his happy meal, sheesh.
2004-12-25 12:17:27 PM  
D'oh! If he made it through the drive-thru...sheesh. And that was using the preview!

[image from too old to be available]

Damn farked up tag police, if it were a hired gun it'd get the automatic hero worship treatment for having agreed to go shoot fereigners in exchange for money, but a guy who runs after a moving car and pulls out the unconcious driver mere moments before he drowns? Naaaah...
2004-12-25 02:15:12 PM  
Next time try pulling the parking brake, that will save the drunk and the car, and anyone who might be passed out in the back seat or the kittens in the trunk.

2004-12-25 03:45:36 PM  
I would have pulled him from the car, thus saving his life, and then I would have beat the crap out of him for endagering the lives of other people.

20-year-old drunk driver? Jerk.
2004-12-25 03:52:00 PM  

Yes, I agree with you there. I knew I forgot to add the lives saved by the asshat being saved. Kudos still, to the employee.
2004-12-26 12:05:41 AM  
Next time try pulling the parking brake...

That's probably why he got the drunk out of the way first.

"Oh dear, that car's heading towards a canal! Let me climb in to it and... ***gurgle*** ***gurgle*** ***gurgle***..."
2004-12-26 06:06:27 AM  
Epistax: Perhaps you post a link to the incident to which you refer.

I didn't think so.
2004-12-27 12:02:39 PM  
I know a jackass named Lester Broussard who is probably the bastard's father. The only time the lazy fark gets off his arse is to go to McDonalds.
