3 (possibly more off camera) darwin award potentials


Yes, they are floating a powerstrip on flip flops to power the electric grill on the table which is also surrounded by the same water surrounding their bodies...

I'm sure they are thinking to themselves that since the surge protector (hopefully) has a built-in breaker, were it to capsize, the breaker would trip and save them from a rather horrible and painful death... that is what they are "thinking". Ya know sometimes air quotes just don't do justice to a particular irony or profundity... or in this case stupidity.

*Yes I do in fact realize that those were real quotes and not as I suggested "air-quotes"... oh man, I just blew my mind! I put the phrase air-quotes INSIDE actual quotes. I need to sit down.

**For those wondering, I was in fact already sitting down so I stood up... but then had to sit back down to add this bit of meaningless drivel.

Don't be so sure!

I do notice that they seem to have an abundance of adult beverages. No surprise there!

Oh, and while the use of lighter fluid while under the influence could also have comically darwinian consequences, I have one word for these doofuses (doofi?):

CHARCOAL.
