There Ain’t No Cure For Stupid – Drunk Sings Queen In Squad Car
PublishedMarch 30, 2012
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.
