Windsor to Detroit and back, after 8 beers

2013-07-24 20:08:34.94325+00 by Dan Lyke 4 comments

I have a new hero: Canadian man sorry for chugging eight beers and swimming to Detroit, and most of the way back before the authorities found him.

“If I’m going to be in the paper, I’d at least like them to say I actually made it, even though I got in trouble and everything,” Morillo, 47, said Tuesday. “I gotta pay fines and stuff. But I don’t want it to sound like I didn’t make it, because then my buddies are going to say ‘ha, ha, you didn’t make it.’ Because that was the whole thing, to show them I could do it.”

Note to friends: Don't say "there's no way you could do that" to bad-ass alcoholics.

What was the Redneck's last words?

"Hey y'all, watch this!"

No, no, no, it's "*HOLD MY BEER* and watch this!"

I recently mentioned my epiphany on reading SLA Marshall's "More than life itself we value the approval of our peers" line, and someone responded that "...watch this" was the obvious outcome of that social need.
