Tales of Nincompoopery

Gene Weingarten of the Washington Post has written an ode to his friends, all of whom have done incredibly stupid things.

After reading this article, I thought of five different stories of incredibly stupid things I've done. I'm sure there are many more, but for now those five stories will go in the notebook for future Father Knows Nothing columns.

Honestly, my biggest fear in life is dying in a tragically stupid way. I was just telling my son the story of the Yardbirds lead singer that died trying to play his electric guitar in the bathtub. He wrote some great songs and sang some classics, but he will always be remembered for his incredibly stupid death.
