You Can't Fix Stupid

This was sent to me this morning by our good friend Jurhee Ivy.....I cannot believe what some people will do!

Looks like he confused the trailer for his houseboat. Easily done if you're stupid.

Looks like they're just coming ashore.

What a mess.

I thought you might be referring to the F-250 with 23 people on board that left the highway near Goliad. Hit a tree and killed 11 of them yesterday

Not to get off topic, but that was likely a coyote with a truckload (24 or 25 occupants, depending on the source) of illegal immigrants. U.S. 59, where the accident occurred, is the major thoroughfare between Laredo (the border crossing) and Houston. One often sees convoys of vehicles (2 or 3 in tow!!) heading the other way toward Laredo, with odds pretty good that one or more of them are stolen.

Its the gentle cycle for the undercarriage, the wave motion gently removes all of the sand.

I have seen a couple over them on day u tube, and I do not know if I could bring myself to pull the 5er out where some of them do.

On the pickup, now it makes sense, I was wondering how/why that many.

It looks like he was trying to pickup a good Satellite signal before he parked

On the positive side: He's got a perfect platform from which to sight fish for Striped Bass!
On the negative side, well let's just say that he had better get that outta there before the tide comes in!!

ok I've seen a lot of things but OMG. That is a "What were you thinking" moment. I know maybe they redid the trailer in to a houseboat.

I should've added to my original post that this was NOT taken in Texas! I actually don't know where it was taken, but I'm thinking it ain't Texas....Galveston beach isn't that pretty and it's not packed with people like Corpus area..... sooooooooo it must be another coast!

doesn't matter - just thought I'd add this in!
