The Knucklehead of the Day award

Today's winner is Jean Fortune. He gets the award for the following-

A man ended up arrested after calling 911 to complain that a Boynton Beach Burger King had run out of lemonade, according to police.

Cops say Jean Fortune, 66, dialed 911 and called for police action after the Burger King at 1521 W. Boynton Beach Blvd. told him it was out of lemonade.

Fortune was arrested Friday by Boynton Beach police on a charge of misuse of 911 communication.

If BK had run out of French Fries, the phone call may have been understandable. NOT! Jean Fortune is today's Knucklehead of the Day.

Dude, the only other choice was Mountain Dew.

This is a pretty good reaction compared to how they usually kill people in WPB fast food places.

This guy must be a real case of arrested development. Most of the 66 year olds I know (Or as I call 'em the young folks)know to use 911 only in real emergencies. Like when your favorite bar runs out of whiskey.

Here in the small town in western NC that I police in, we have had citizens call our non-emergency line to complain about the long lines and shortage of cashiers at the (currently) only grocery store in town. Seems like this nanny state longing brought about by the Obamessiah is really catching on.

Bill, you just don't understand. Jean was thirsty. Soda wasn't going to do it, and water rusts your pipes, unless there's a ton of sugar in it.

You really need to get your priorities straight, and so does the Boynton Beach police. The One™ should look into this situation.

I think he should sue Burger King and the Boynton Beach police for...something. It worked for the lady who sued McDonald's for having hot coffee, of all things.

Wait a minute...what was I thinking? It's obviously Bush's fault.

I bet I know who he voted for this past November.

He should hook up with that dumb broad in California who called 911 because Burger King didn't have any Western Whoppers.

Proof that stupidity knows no age limits!
