Dumbest People Nominee: Trying To Pull Down Huge Tree With Old Buick

Behold the following video. It shows a bunch of morons trying to pull down a huge tree using a 1980s vintage Buick LeSabre.

Yup, that's right. We'll just attach a chain between the Buick's back bumper and this tall, mature tree and pull it down, no problem.  Watch the video to see the world's dumbest people in action. Then, as always, below the video on this page, I'll have a few questions and comments that this whole thing raises.

First of all, what if they actually succeeded at pulling down the tree? Wouldn't it have landed on the Buick? Wouldn't the guy inside get smushed? I smell a Darwin Award here.

Had the tree fallen, what did they propose to do with it then?  It would have fallen on the street or nearby houses. They don't have chainsaws, apparently. Were they just going to leave the tree there?

What about the moron inside the Buick. Doesn't it hurt to get tossed around like that? Then again, no brain no pain.

A nice touch in the video was the moment when the little boy on the bicycle started singing "It's raining car parts" to the tune of the song "It's Raining Men" by the Weathergirls.

You could sort of hear the guys trying to pull down the tree offer suggestions and barking orders as the repeated attempts fail. Great. dumb, probably drunk guys trying to figure this out. It's a wonder they've lived this long.

To be fair, the way the tree shakes, they might have only been trying to pull down a large branch from the tree, not the whole tree. This doesn't make them any less dumb.
