Drunks Serving The Community...

People give drunks a lot of shit. Why does society persist on shunning these lovable chaps. Despite pissing and shitting their own pants, drunk folks can serve a myriad purposes. Take for instance the Spanish dude who hangs out on my block and washes cars when he isn't passed out in my building's hallways. Also note the above referee who obviously tied one on, but he was still able to tie his shoes and get out on the pitch. And don't forget the drunk who is ready to rush into a burning building to help save lives, (below). So next time you are chastising your neighborhood drunkard, don't be so crass because one day they could really come up big in the clutch.

BERLIN (Reuters) - Firefighters called to a blaze at an apartment building in a southern German town were astonished to discover a fully equipped extremely drunk imposter in their ranks, police said on Thursday.

On hearing the alarm, the 38-year-old man had rushed to the fire station, was helped into protective clothing and helmet by unsuspecting firefighters and boarded the fire engine, a spokesman for Suedhessen police said.

After arriving at the apartments, firefighters quickly realized the man was an imposter and called the police, he added.

"When fire breaks out, it's all hands on deck!" the man told officers when questioned about his motives. He was released without charge after sobering up overnight in a police cell.
