There Ain’t No Cure For Stupid – Drunk Sings Queen In Squad Car

Whoever it was that started the rumour that Canadians were among the sanest, most reasonable and responsible people on the planet….well….were wrong. Following his arrest for public intoxication, this fellow treated the arresting officers to an A Capela  version of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody.

It gives a whole new perspective to the patience required to be a designated driver.

I’ve had moments in my life where the amount of joy juice I consumed exceeded my ability to contain my enthusiasm for life. I even got so loaded once, I brought home the wrong car. I\m not proud of that and to this day still consider it one of the stupidist things I’ve ever done. But it was a different era and even back then, we could be pretty stupid.
I have never, however, been arrested for public intoxication and if I was, I doubt I would be sitting in the back seat of a squad car singing Bohemian Rhapsody. There are just so many much better songs out there and quite frankly, even though I’m not a big country music fan, I’d probably have bee more inclined to sing this.
If you’re going to have a dummy sing to you, it might as well be a real dummy. 
The police tend to get criticized a lot for how they handle things but now you know some of the darker things they have to put up with. It’s not all pepper spray and laughter. Sometimes they encounter the dark side of life where danger is replaced by stupidity. Danger they are trained to handle but just as there ain’t no cure for stupid, there’s no protection from it or training to prepare you for it either. 
Even pepper spray won’t work on a living dummy and you’re not allowed to shoot ’em, no matter how much you might wish you were.

    He was arrested for impaired driving, which is very serious. While his chops are impressive, what is most impressive is the Member’s absolute professionalism. Great to see the media latch on to something positive for a change. Although I don’t support the fame a drunk driver is receiving, I hope he’s punished for that to the full extent of the law. I hear he’s also being charged for releasing this to the public before the case went to court.

      I absolutely agree with you. We tend to evaluate law enforcement by the more sensationalist stories that make it into the media but I think this video more accurately portrays what they deal with. I’ve known too many police officers in my day not to have an absolute respect for the professionalism most o them exhibit in the face of the stupidity and crime they face every day.
