Natural selection, foiled again

Our society probably made this thing so fool proof that it was impossible for him to take himself out during this escapade:

Police arrested a 38-year-old man who allegedly stole a forklift on Wednesday morning and hit a street sign and a telephone pole during a slow joyride. The man is due in court next month. Authorities said after the vehicle ran out of gas, the man sought treatment at a local hospital for alcohol and drug intoxication.

He was charged with with possession of a stolen vehicle and theft over $10,000.

Police also said he had no proof of insurance and his driver's license had expired.

  1. Damn fool! Doesn't he know that he should have his license up-to-date and proof on insurance on him before he decides to steal a forklift and take it for a joy ride?! Some people are so stupid!

  3. Do you have to have a driver's license to operate a forklift? Oh, wait, I live with a forklift driver. I'll just check with him.

  9. I didn't think you needed a license either.

    I've never driven one, but I have operated the power ones you walk behind. They were fun.

    I'm with Captain Dumbass - if you're going to jail you might as well tear some shit up.
