Ryan Dunn Wins A Darwin Award

Assholes Anonymous

The country can’t pay the bills.  Congress is mired in partisan wrangling over what, we still don’t know.  The world hates the Jews.  We in American continue to export our culture to every corner on the known world. In short, its business as usual on planet earth, with Ecclesiastes 1:9 leading the way.  Just how ho hum is it on the third rock from the sun?  Ryan Dunn passed away and few were surprised.

Dunn was one of the major movers and shakers in the Jackass TV/film franchise.  A truly idiotic stunt and prank show Jackass started on MTV in 2000 and went on to spawn 3 films each more moronic than the one before.  Just how base and horribly insipid are these films?  In the first Jackass film one of the actors is locked in a port-o-potty that is then whacked with a wrecking ball.  The actor then lands on a pile of toilet paper rolls.

As the film franchise went on, the stunts got more and more outrageous.  They also got more and more dangerous.  Needless to say billions have been grossed from these films.  Somewhere, PT Barnum is getting drunk in celebration.

Yesterday, after tweeting pictures of himself and a couple of friends drinking in a West Goshen Township, Pennsylvania bar, Ryan Dunn and a friend jumped into Dunn’s 2007 Porsche.  Shortly thereafter, the Porsche ran off the road, into a tree, burst into flames and killed 34-year old Dunn and his 30-year old passenger Zachary Hartwell instantly.

Of course, controversy surrounded Ryan Dunn’s death.  But not of the sort anyone could have imagined.  A possible DUI, being old enough to know you aren’t indestructible and going out like a moron in public are all reasons enough to get all the gossip mongers to make blah blah.  This time the shock came in the form of a tweet from film critic Roger Ebert.

After hearing of Dunn’s death Ebert tweeted “Friends don’t let jackasses drink and drive.”  Outrage followed.  Bam Margera, another member of the Jackass posse released responded with this tweet: “I just lost my best friend I have been crying hysterical for a full day and piece of s–t roger ebert has the gall to put in his 2 cents. F–k you! Millions of people are crying right now, shut your fat f–king mouth!”  Ebert subsequently apologized.

The only thing Ebert got wrong in his tweet was the DUI angle.  The toxicology results won’t be known for 4-6 weeks.  Ryan Dunn, Bam Margera, Johnny Knoxville and their Jackass brethren managed to take wallowing in shit and stupidity to a lower level than previously imagined.  Even early 20th Century freak shows had more dignity and class than Dunn and his posse.  So when he went out the he lived, as a low living moron, we the people surprised at his death, we just wondered why it took the Great Magnet so long to give Ryan Dunn the Darwin Award he so richly deserved.

I just wonder why the tabloid and celebrity media outlets are giving it any press at all.  Andrew Breitbart must not have any more pictures of Anthony Weiner’s package.
