At least he’s smart enough to want to stop smoking

But that bar is, apparently, lower than I had realized.

The headline is, “Coeburn man handcuffs himself to quit smoking, loses key.” And that’s pretty darn funny. But it’s the last sentence of the police-blotter paragraph that really got me. (Don’t cheat yourself by reading the last sentence first.)

Seriously, read the paragraph, and then just sit back and imagine yourself as the next-door neighbor or the EMS technician. [sigh] It’s a wonderful world we live in, isn’t it?

HT: Dave.
