|I wonder if Daron Stinson, aka "funniestnphilly"|
is laughing now that he is jailed and facing serious charges.
In reality, he's "stupidestinphilly." Possibly the stupidest in the whole world.
In the rapidly devolving world of prank videos on YouTube, in which morons scare the bejeesus out of people for fun and lucrative click counts, Stinson thought he had a fantastic idea.
Why not point a pellet gun, which really, really looked like a menacing handgun at passersby and film their reaction for his adoring audience on Instagram?
You can imagine where that went. First of all, the police were unamused, but at least they had an easy investigation since they could just find this bonehead on Instagram.
I'm sure the people who dove for couple because they thought a wacko was trying to kill them with a gun thought the whole thing was boffo hilarious.
Um, probably not.
My guess is Stinson isn't laughing now, either.
At last check, according to The Smoking Gun, Stinson was jailed in lieu of $125,000 bail, facing charges including aggravated assault, robbery, making terroristic threats and reckless endangerment.
And being this week's Biggest Moron and Potential Darwin Award winner.
After all, I would NOT have been surprised if somebody, seeing Stinson with his stupid gun, return the favor with a real gun and blast away.
I wouldn't have wanted to see him killed, but if anybody deserved a taste of his own medicine it was the idiotic "Funniestinphilly."
