As a certain comedian once said: “It’s always funny until someone gets hurt. Then it’s just hilarious.”

Isn't that funny!

Plus despite the man being German, he swears in English.

It is a given that French is best for cooking and love, Japanese is best for courtesy, and English for profanity and technology.

If someone is going to cannonball into a frozen pool, it's much more satisfying to express dismay at the result in English then say, Chinese.

What they left out is that he promptly went out and voted for Obama...

So anyway, here’s a bit of evidence I may not be the dumbest f@&k on the planet.

Hey at least the German fellow can laugh at himself. Not a bad life skill to acquire.

That has to be one of the funniest videos I’ve seen in a while. What makes it good is that the “diver” himself saw the humor and couldn’t stop laughing. Very good.

He’s lucky that he didn’t break through - he could have become trapped under the ice, and drowned before his friends could get him out. Then we’d be talking “Darwin Award.”

Additionally, I have taken to saying "Mot de Cambronne!" when particularly irritated. It's completely inoffensive, even in French-- unless you know exactly what Cambronne said.

It would not surprise me to find out that alcohol was involved in this decision.

I’m pretty sure he thought that the ice was relatively thin, not rock hard and frozen solid.

He most probably has a sprained or broken coccyx (tip of the tailbone), and he’ll be very uncomfortable for a very long time.

I did not find that funny at all, for the pain of others does not amuse me.

However, I do understand the very human reaction of hysterical laughter to someone doing something so dingbat dumb.
