Headline of the Day

posted by on August 13 at 9:31 AM

It’s not even 10:00 a.m., and we have a winner.

Man with rifle and 10lbs of pot caught driving over 90mph while taping himself masturbating

Here’s a link to a more complete story, from the Northern Territory News. This man is an end-of-days hero, Mad Max incarnate, speeding through the Australian bush with a whole lot of pot and a whole lot of testosterone.

Sgt Edwards said Mr Erhardt was arrested and told officers he had “found” the drugs at a rest stop 100km north of Coober Pedy — and he intended to smoke all of it at his Noonamah home.

Mr Erhardt also told police he had used the rifle to shoot “kangaroos from the vehicle whilst driving north.”

Mr Erhardt applied twice for bail last week so he could get married before going to jail.

Mr. Erhardt is also a father of three.

Thanks to Slog tipper Matthew.

I was going to first say that the headline sufficiently tells you everything you want to know, but I then noticed the word "Australia" in your post, and knew that the headline would only barely scratch the surface of this man's glorious adventure.

This makes me feel I'm not doing enough with my life.

Totally made me flash back to opening scene of Mad Max. This guy is a real-life Night Rider.

Its like living a real life Lebowski life.

That dead kangaroo totally held the car together.

"Mad Max: Beyond the Thunderdome" was in fact filmed in part around Coober Pedy, which is arguably the most horrible town on the face of the earth. It's so hot -- 120-130 degrees -- that everybody lives underground in houses carved out of the rock, including the supermarkets and stuff, while the surface is nothing but slag heaps left over from opal mining.

Reminded me instantly of that Eric Bana movie 'Chopper.'

You are right it is a good headline but it would have made a great headline about a week ago when it was first mentioned in the Slog. Keep looking you have a few more hours.
