But he didn't let prince albert out of the can. He was too smart for that one.

While his career at Arby's may have taken a hit, this man definitely has a future administering electrical shocks to retarded people.

He must have stayed at that holiday inn express last night.

This prankster is either really good, or people are really getting that stupid. My guess is the later.

That manager bears an eerie resemblance to Hugh Jass.

This sounds like the work of Hugh G. Rection.

Ever since this guy got out of the can, he's been having his revenge with the prank phone calls:

No. I believe you were already beaten to the punch. Man, Robin Williams plays a creepy psycho.

This shiat blows my mind because 1) I can't believe that the manager(s) of the store know how the kitchen suppression systems work and 2) I cannot fathom someone being THAT stupid...
 
2009-07-07 12:30:25 PM  
They didn't strip and urinate on each other?
 
2009-07-07 12:31:43 PM  
They sure do grow em dumb in that region. How many times has this type of story made it to Fark in the last 6 months? One would think by now it would be common knowledge in the area. These same people probably believe they won the Irish Lottery or that soem Nigerian wants to give them money.

Studies indicate fast food workers have an average IQ of 85. Think this guy didn't get the memo, prolly closer to a 60.

That was a farking great episode. Robin Williams FTW.

2009-07-07 12:43:23 PM  
Yeah I prefer the callers who make the managers strip and do things to their underage fast food employees. Those are much more fap-able stories.

Yes, people are THAT stupid. Stupider, even.

At least this one didn't involve the manager's fiance raping someone because the caller said so.

What a bizarre case. I can't figure out why Summers wasn't also prosecuted, for being a complete and total idiot if for nothing else, and why the victim didn't eventually say, "Fark this shiat, I'm out of here." I mean, I could see going along with it at first, for fear of losing your job or whatever, but at what point do you say to yourself that this is ridiculous, obviously not real, and not worth the job anyway?

I'm not blaming the victim - she was definitely the victim of a heinous crime here (and the fiance who raped her obviously had pre-existing problems that the prank caller simply enabled, so it's good he was charged and convicted). I just don't understand why she didn't leave, say, after the first hour. Or two hours. Or three hours???

karmachameleon: I just don't understand why she didn't leave, say, after the first hour. Or two hours. Or three hours???

Maybe it was a smart move. Like, she saw the security camera and thought, shiat, if they're gonna do this I'll just let theme keep on doing it and get a ton of cash settlement when that security camera footage gets shown in court.

As with spamming, it's not about how many say "no", but the one that says "yes".
