A couple of Florida men are in hot water for cannonballing on a family of Manatees. For God’s Sake, Leave the Manatees Alone


cannonball bail bondNever before in history have so many people incriminated themselves before the popularity of internet and the smart phone. To say that YouTube exists for stupid people to post stupid videos would not be too broad of a generalization….in a lot of circumstances it would be right on target.  The most recent stupid human trick on YouTube was posted 2 days ago has only about 6,000 views but it still tops the list in stupid things to do on  YouTube.

A couple of fellas in Florida were hanging out (presumably drinking beers and smoking weed) on a short pier and saw a Manatee and its Calf floating nearby.  For some reason they decided that jumping off the pier and cannonballing the Manatees would be a fun thing to do.  Even better, they decided to  the whole thing and post it on YouTube.  Unfortunately for them, some people from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service saw the un-funny video and are planning on filing federal charges against the men.  Each man could be looking at a $50,000 fine and a year in jail.

We are seriously thinking about starting up a Self Incrimination section.
