2012.04.12-Stupid As Charged
This week’s “Stupid As Charged” consists of three stories which all share the theme of stupid, dumb, strange, weird, or in some other way are worthy of a dunce cap rating. In particular this episode; applying for work naked, the wrong job to do drunk, and booze and boobs.
Naked Man Fights Cops: Job-seeker Jose Ayala Arrested in Sacramento
From the Huffington Post:
It’s a rookie mistake at the informal interview: not wearing clothes.
A naked numskull — apparently on methamphetamine — was caught on tape asking for a job at a welding shop on Saturday and then trying to fight off arresting officers in Sacramento. The shop owner, Chris Johnson, told the station, “I turn around and I’m like, whoa!” “He said something about [how] he was looking for work, and he was good with his hands. I didn’t know why a naked dude would be in my shop.” The guy stares off into space and scratches his head, either squatting or walking around aimlessly just outside the shop. But, when officers arrive, he becomes irate trying to fight them off and even latching on to a female cop’s hair before Johnson and his brother help pry the nude man off of her.
With a winning vote of 4½ dunce meter.
We went with a song from Project Sisyphus:
- Take My Job Away
Current Status – Drunk, Current Occupation – Hopefully Unemployed
From Lumpy’s neck of the woods, Fox News reports that the Eastlake police noticed a woman driving erratically and pulled her over. In the woman’s purse was a half empty bottle of vodka, while on the passenger seat, a driver’s log indicating that she had just dropped off a student and the car she was driving was a Driver’s Ed. car! Her current and hopefully former occupation, a student driving instructor.
While I understand that such a job may lead to a desire to drink, I would hope that she could at least wait until she got home. Also of note, the local news ran police dash cam videos of this incident yesterday. I am confident that, even to the casual observer, the woman was not simply drunk… plastered would be a much better term.

I Was So Drunk, I Put My Nipple in the Wrong Mouth
This one comes from dailymail.co.uk. You’re not supposed to drink and drive. You’re definitely not supposed to drink and feed a baby…with your alcoholic breast milk. And you’re MOST DEFINITELY not supposed to get drunk, go walking into your neighbor’s house, and start breast feeding someone ELSE’S baby. Twenty-four year old Rebecca Silva denied the allegations, stating she didn’t try to breast feed that baby. She got off lucky on this one, only being charged with “unlawful occupancy.”
This story had a winning vote of a 4½ dunce meter.
