:Police believe the incident was part of a bizarre stunt that went horribly wrong:

there's some penetrating investigative insight

39 years old????? This is the kind of moronic stunt usually reserved for the under 30 crowd........

Actually the stunt went off as planned. The guy just forgot he is not a cartoon character.

No good punk teens ruining public places! When I was a kid-

Oh wait....

No good punk old guys ruining public places!

But was he fooled by the FoxNews scroll on his Simpson's screen.

Was there just a garbage bin full of water conveniently laying around, or did they have to fill it up?

When did the police quit carrying fire-extinguishers in squad cars? And my wasn't it nice to have a bin full of water nearby... I smell a setup.

Heck, I could jump over a toilet even without a bike. Public or private, you name it.

Or off, depending on whether or not I read the headline right.

"When you're running down the street, and your hair is on fire, people get outof your way!"

It's the only thing that entered my mind. An "attaboy" for anyone who can cite the reference.

I'll try and remember this next time I want to jump off of a toilet block (whatever that is)

® this could've easily been a PSA

Alot of Fark headlines read that way. You look at it for a bit, nod your head and say, "yeah, ok. Makes sense. I never thought of doing that with two weasels, a vacuum and Gary Colmeman, but, wellll, it's been duly noted."

that's just amusing

Wrong. The correct advice should be:
If you're lighting yourself on fire and jumping your bike off a public toilet, be sure to aim for the concrete. Gives Darwin time to rest.

GIS for 'Toilet Block'

That must be a pretty small BMX bike, like circus clowns use perhaps?

"Police believe the incident was part of a bizarre stunt that went horribly wrong."

Do they think alcohol may have been a factor, too?

Thanks for the advice, I'll try to remember that.

BMX for Dummies recommends that you have someone standby with a fire extinguisher when you try this stunt.
 
2003-10-26 05:02:48 PM  
what i dont understand is that the cops waited untill he jumped off, then went to fill up a garbage can of water before putting him out. Wouldn't it have been better to stop him BEFORE he did that?

"He remained alight until officers from the passing patrol car doused him with a garbage bin full of water."

Ewww! Garbage water!

Hope he hasn't reproduced

Now he just needs to figure out who to blame and sue for his misfortune.
