Unlicensed, drunk & masturbating is no way to go through life

"I'm no role model."
--Charles Barkley

I've never been a huge fan of pro sports; I like football and I'll go to a baseball game or two every season. Lately, though, professional athletes (I'm limiting my observations to baseball, basketball and NFL football here) resemble nothing so much as out of control man-children. Like Minnesota Timberwolves center Eddie Griffin, who crashed his Cadillac Escalade, drunk, while masturbating to a porn tape he watched on his dash-mounted DVD player. At least he wasn't shooting a handgun Yosemite Sam-style as he crashed.

Now the two apparently star-struck cops who gave him a pass are under investigation themselves.

Some stories just write themselves.

I heard about this on the radio this morning.

I almost peed on the car seat I was laughing so hard.
