Here’s yet another reason for this fad to go away. This guy somehow believes the ice bucket challenge should include a confederate flag. I wonder if he even knows what ALS stand for, other than A Lot Stupid.

    Too bad the idiot removed the video–I was looking forward to it. Just an aside–perhaps if it’s the water that catches fire, they could use it to show the advantages of having fracking chemicals leaking into the water table…

    • mea_mark August 26th, 2014 at 3:36 pm

      Check back in a little bit, should be a video up that works.

    • Anomaly 100 August 26th, 2014 at 3:45 pm

      It’s back:-)

      • M D Reese August 26th, 2014 at 7:05 pm

        I just did–it really is priceless. And it does appear that whatever was in the bucket was also flammable. I recently read a report that an elected official of some sort stated that Native Americans used to use fire water to cook with and that the water was always flammable…

        • Anomaly 100 August 26th, 2014 at 7:17 pm

          We should send some of that fire water to Congress. You know, just to be nice and all…

          • M D Reese August 26th, 2014 at 9:15 pm

            Put it in a fancy blue bottle and sell it to them in a vending machine–hee hee!

          • Anomaly 100 August 26th, 2014 at 9:20 pm

            I’m so down with that.

          • ChrisVosburg August 27th, 2014 at 1:47 pm

            also available in a fancy blue bottle:

          Fracking water – very important in the Native American culture

    I love you Alan, but the challenge is not just a fad, it’s done more to increase awareness of a horrible disease than anything else EVER has before.

    • William August 26th, 2014 at 4:33 pm

      but the challenge is not just a fad
      Darn night.

    most folks in Nevada don’t, but I reckon they figure that if Sara is somehow involved, it’s a stupid con not worth investing in. Unless you want your business/charity to be crashed/burned and shipped off to China, you really should start shying away from republicans in general and Palin and Romney with Ryan and the little white Kentucky boy senator, and James in Texas.
    OK, I admit it, maybe I am becoming politically racist, but I can’t seem to keep the thought from flooding in on sight. Every single white republican I see smiling (local/state/federal) I can’t help but think:
    have they just soiled themselves or
    are they soiling themselves right now.
    I’ve tried everything! eating USA hot dogs, praying, watching porn, drinking beer, counting bounces in the mall, I even looked in a mirror and said Sara Palin 2 and 1/2 times – NOTHING WORKS!

    Charles Darwin’s Natural Selection at work. Too bad he didn’t catch his . . . uhm . . . privates on fire so he couldn’t reproduce.

    • tiredoftea August 26th, 2014 at 4:02 pm

      Way too late, he and his sister were betrothed at thirteen.

  5. R.J. Carter August 26th, 2014 at 4:05 pm

    They had the ice. They had the bucket.

    Nobody said it had to be water and not shine.

    • Anomaly 100 August 26th, 2014 at 4:05 pm

      They were sooo close!

    Rednecks are funny.

    The GOP just found their front runner!!!!!!!

  8. ChrisVosburg August 26th, 2014 at 5:05 pm

    Hahahahaha, he actually pronounces nominate just like the slow kids in second grade used to do it:

    His hair isn’t the only thing that’s effed up

  10. Mainah August 26th, 2014 at 5:48 pm

    His Momma must be so proud.

    I’m surprised this idiot has lived as long as he has

    • Ah_Clem August 27th, 2014 at 3:06 pm

      No doubt he will die an early death due to some misadventure.

  13. CharlieMA August 26th, 2014 at 6:33 pm

    He locked up his seat on the board for BoA.

  14. ChrisVosburg August 26th, 2014 at 6:43 pm

    Good grief, apparently this is a thing

    The Oakland County Health Division distributed a notice today warning parents and their kids to not take the fire challenge, which consists of people dousing themselves in accelerant (such as lighter fluid), igniting it and attempting to put the fire out — all on film, of course. They then challenge their friends to self-immolate as well.

    I give up, am looking to hitch ride off world, prefer blue-sky planet, Nitrogen/Oxygen 80/20 atmosphere a must, will share driving, have some knowledge of orbital dynamics.

    • M D Reese August 26th, 2014 at 6:58 pm

      Wow. But I guess not surprising. Perhaps we’re seeing the consequences of over-population and this is Nature’s way of thinning the herd?

    • Roctuna August 26th, 2014 at 7:03 pm

      Never underestimate human capacity for stupidity, but yeah, Darwin Award winners in the making.

  15. M D Reese August 26th, 2014 at 6:55 pm

    The last time I checked, the video wasn’t available. I’m glad I checked again–priceless. Let your freak flag fly!

  16. Denise August 26th, 2014 at 7:40 pm

    If he wanted the Patrick Stewart look, there are better ways to acquire it.

  17. Dot August 26th, 2014 at 8:39 pm

    Let’s hope that nasty flag burned too.

  18. RioBravoHombre August 26th, 2014 at 9:32 pm

    Waving around the flag of a defeated enemy of this great country, while lighting your head on fire? BURN, BABY BURN!!!

    • whatthe46 August 26th, 2014 at 10:02 pm

      love it…

  19. whatthe46 August 26th, 2014 at 10:05 pm

    that couldn’t have gone better. wait, yes it could have.

  20. Khary A August 27th, 2014 at 9:54 am

    I don’t know whats more disturbing, the fact that this glorious event just happened or the ever expanding nature of Val Kilmer’s head. I know we can all see that…he was Batman, roll that around in your noodle for a minute.

  21. GunTotingLib August 27th, 2014 at 6:58 pm

    the shallow end of the gene pool seems to be getting bigger and bigger.

    Dude, your hair ain’t the only thing that’s fucked up.
