(Photo courtesy of . . . everyone)

I'm not sure where this photo originated from.  All I know is that at least 40 different people
submitted it to me for 'Tard of the Month.  Unfortunately, I think the term "'Tard" would be
somewhat generous in this instance.  Maybe requiring people to obtain a license before
reproducing isn't such a bad idea after all.

Anyway, here's the story behind the photo (not my words):

Maryland Rocket Scientist

To think our presidential election rests in the hands of people like this!

A VW can do anything ...

The stupidity of some people in this world never fails to amaze me.

This picture is real - not doctored in anyway - and was taken last week in Waldorf, MD by a
Transportation Supervisor for a company that delivers building materials for 84 Lumber. When
he saw it there in the parking lot of IHOP, he went and bought a camera to take pictures.

The car is still running as can be witnessed by the exhaust. A woman is either asleep or
otherwise out in the front seat passenger side. The guy driving it was over jogging up and down
on Rt. 925 in the background. The witnesses said their physical state was OTHER than normal
and the police just shook their heads in amazement. The driver finally came back after the
police were there and was getting down at the back to cut the twine around the load. They told
him to get back until it was taken off.

The materials were loaded at Home Depot. Their store manager said they had the customer
sign a waiver!

Both back tires are trashed. The back shocks were driven up through the floorboard. In the back
seat were 10 bags, 80 lbs. each of concrete. On the roof are many 2X4s, 4X4s and OSL sheets
of lumber. They estimated the load weight at 3000 lbs.

The car is a VW Jetta with FL plates and the guy said he was headed for Annapolis.
