It's a good thing Jackass exists, otherwise there would be nothing to blame "plain old stupidity" on.

Some friends and I had planned on doing this..until those SOBs at Jackass popularized it, we went paintballing instead.

I knew that, it is so funny thought I did not know that

Sounds like someone needs to be told the story of the little boy who cried wolf.
2003-02-28 04:08:38 PM  
Thanks Sgrmac for that picture.
that made me ill.

must go to boobies post to
fix my brain.

Go ahead. Let your friends handcuff you. It's all fun and games until they break out the KY and the gerbils. Maybe I've said too much.
2003-02-28 04:15:17 PM  
they'll get caught,but it "won't be their fault".
They were JUSt copying what they saw on TV
2003-02-28 04:15:31 PM  
Should've been the obvious tag

I love the line "possibly a re-enactment of the MTV show Jackass". They obviously have no idea what to say so they immediately point their finger at everything that's wrong with the world: Jackass..I'm surprised it wasn't blammed on McDonalds
2003-02-28 04:25:05 PM  
They always try to blame everything bad on pop culture. Like, I betcha the next time I wind up in the emergency room because I stapled my testicles to my leg, they'll try to blame Jackass.
2003-02-28 04:26:12 PM  
Damnit, I could have sworn that it wasn't a hoax. Thank God for the police!! What would we do without them.
2003-02-28 04:27:49 PM  
I'm astounded. Who would have thought it could be a hoax.
2003-02-28 04:36:19 PM  
so what exactly did these guys do wrong?
2003-02-28 04:41:47 PM  
They arrested people in Dayton doing this? What for?

Ohio Statute 3-4-320(A) Criminally making people call the police to report a suspected crime? [ok, I made that up]

But it sounds just like what they charged theese guys with.

Seriously, what crime did these people commit if it's a joke?
2003-02-28 04:47:30 PM  
Do not re-enact shiat you've seen on Jackass, and then send a tape to MTV. They want original stunts only!
2003-02-28 04:50:06 PM  
"[The men are] being detained, and the investigation continues, but they're not suspects,"

Why does that sentence not make sense to me?
2003-02-28 04:51:04 PM  
Yep, that was a hoax fer sher! The man found dead beside the road hours later looked just like the "victim," but lots of people have a similar appearance. Purely a coincidence.
2003-02-28 04:52:15 PM  
Sgrmac: I can't see that being safe for work.
2003-02-28 05:04:10 PM  
This one time, I enacted a handcuffed scene in a donut shop. I think it was before Jackass did it, though, so it was actually funny.
2003-02-28 05:05:23 PM  
Unluckyimmortal, I guess that would be an opinion though, wouldn't it? It fits the 'no nipples, no privates, no cursing' criteria. Anything else that would get a person fired is their problem to watch out for (and arguably, so is the rest of the criteria).
2003-02-28 05:07:58 PM  
ok, one thing Jackass wasnt was repetitive, so I have a new trick for these guys. Shove 30 or so bath beads up your keister, wait a bit and then fart some bubbles. Now thats jackass and no one gets hurt...
2003-02-28 05:14:12 PM  
Great! This will make it easier to kidnap people, now if they almost get away, no one will think anything of it.

Come to think of it, that actually happened to Dahmer once.

2003-02-28 05:18:40 PM  
Punishment should be handcuffed to a toilet, face down, in the city jail overnight, then 30 days probation watching MTV with eyes taped open with duct tape.
2003-02-28 05:22:34 PM  
obviously it was a hoax cause it would be hard for someone who is handcuffed to get out of a trunk....

I love cops.
2003-02-28 05:41:10 PM  
SilverDraghyeon: Yeah, but that picture hurt my brain.
2003-02-28 06:24:38 PM  
Wait. How did they abduct a grocery store?
2003-02-28 06:53:45 PM  
Well at least this one is actually based on something that was on Jackass. In about 90% of these stories, they say the kids were imitating something on Jackass, when whatever stupid thing the kids did had no resemblance to anyhting that was ever on the show.
