I've done some stupid things in my life.
Bangs, tanning, married men, credit cards, wrong men.
But I think in the land of stupidity there are those of us who just visit and then there are the professionals. People who take it to a whole other level.
Recently in Belgium, a young, but not young enough for youth to be an excuse, man staged his death in an effort to win back his ex-girlfriend. And this wasn't a little stage. This was a big Broadway stage. She was informed of his death and his wishes for her to take care of the funeral arrangements. Which she did. The casket, the flowers, the music.
At the end of the ceremony, he got up out of the closed coffin and spread his arms open wide for a thank-God-you're-alive hug.
He got a slap and jail time instead.
