"Ate up With The Dumb Ass!"That phrase...my wife claims it was her folks when someone made a big mistake...is a pretty good description of Michael Vick in his most recent escapade.....
Neal Boortz wrote it a lot better than could I:
HOW STUPID IS THIS?
OK ... Who among us doesn't know that you can't carry a bottle of water through an airport security check? OK .. maybe if you've never flown on a commercial airliner, and you have no plans to do so in the future .. you might not know. That is if you don't read newspapers and don't have a radio or a TV. In other words ... If you were raised in a shack in the Everglades without electricity and no contact with the outside world you might not know you can't carry a bottle of water through an airport security check?
But what if you are a highly-paid, college "educated" nationally known NFL quarterback who is constantly jet-setting around the country? Then --- you know.
So, tell me then. Why would the aforesaid highly-paid, college "educated", nationally known NFL quarterback obtain a water bottle with a clever little compartment behind the label where one can hide stuff -- marijuana, for instance -- and then try to get it through an airport security check? Further --- why would you throw a fit when they tell you you have to throw the water away? The security screeners know that you can buy another bottle of water on the concourse ... so you don't think they're going to get suspicious when you act like they're trying to castrate you when they take your precious water?
So --- why would someone do this? Simple. Because they're a dumb ass, that's why.
I guess having massive amounts of money does not bestow smarts on anyone....
