“He is also a member of the CKY Crew...”
Verb tense trouble again.
Care to place bets on his blood alcohol level at time of crash ?
Condolences to the tree and the guard rail.
Darwinism culling the herd. (Porsche gets an assist)
>>Wow. Straight from Jackass to Darwin Award.<<
Too bad about the passenger.
I'll let it slide in this case. CKY stands for "Camp Kill Yourself."
This is what happens when you make tons of money for absolutely nothing other than being a complete dumbass. Spoiled rotten to the core.
My money is on Bam to go next.
It must be asked. Was someone in the porta-potty?
This is obviously a terrible tragedy for his family and friends, but could anybody really be surprised?
True, but if you play stupid games you get stupid prizes.

If my tagline wasn’t already in use I would SO use that!!! (LOL)
Somehow, I’m not surprised.
Yea the picture makes him look like he was already plastered. He just has that look. I’d say his level was way above the legal limit. Sad that he killed the person with him, thank God there weren’t more people killed.
