Patient: Whoa, my head is spinng! I feel like we're going around in circles.

EMT: Bobby, check his head for bumps.....ummmm...Bobby? Aren't you supposed to be driving?

Bobby: DOH!

Dane County Sheriff's spokeswoman Elise Schaffer says police officers from Mt. Horeb stopped him but she didn't have any information on how they did it but afterwards four officers reported needing new batteries for their tasers.

Given that my HMO has the motto "Patient heal thyself" the next step is to have us drive the ambulance ourselves.

Both Firefox and Chrome claim the link is broken. Anyone else getting that?

Dude - yeah, sorta. I'm not getting a broken link, but a security warning about the site.

...and seeing as my work computer had a NASTY virus a couple weeks ago, I'm remarkably disinclined to test that.

WD, I'm on my office computer with the old IE6 and was able to see it.

I can't see it either.

It gave me a warning the first time but then went straight to it the second time...

I blame the Taliban... or the Illuminati.... or Marvin the Martian....

"Did you take the keys out?"
No, but the parking brake is set."
"No worries, then."

"DNS Fail".

Whateverthehellthatis.

The web address you entered could not be found

WTFBBQ?!

And now it's all better. The Herald site seemed to be throwing a nasty curveball re-direct there at first, but it's gone now.

NMUA: *snork*

It works.

Isn't Madison in Dane County?

Maybe it was a fraternity prank.

Yea! I got posted!

Opera won't let me through. Secure site?

I can't get the link to work. I blame Facebook. They've f*cked up everything else.

Oddly, the first time (in Firefox) it worked fine. Then I read the comments and tried it again. Now, it apparently tries to go to secure.blogs.herald.com for some bizarre reason, and that appears to be a non-existent host (nslookup fails).

Crap, you guys are too fast for me. This happened 30 miles from my house and I just heard about this on the radio coming home!

frissin' frackin' internets......

Not only was alcohol involved, but I'm quite certain that the phrase, "Dude, check this out!" was also.

The link was working in IE7 until just a moment ago, now... nada.

For those who still can't get this:

Sheriff: Drunk man steals Wisconsin ambulance with patient inside
Associated Press

Updated: 02/09/2010 01:18:14 PM CST


Dane County authorities say a drunken man stole an ambulance from a ski area with the patient still inside.

The Dane County sheriff's office says Fitch-Rona emergency responders were treating a patient in the back of the ambulance at the Tyrol Basin Ski and Snowboard Area in Mt. Horeb on Monday night. A 24-year-old Illinois man got into the vehicle and drove it around the parking lot.

Dane County Sheriff's spokeswoman Elise Schaffer says police officers from Mt. Horeb stopped him but she didn't have any information on how they did it. Dane County Sheriff's deputies arrested the man.

Fitch-Rona Emergency Medical Service Deputy Chief Dale Dow says the ambulance's emergency brake was on and paramedics were still in the back of the vehicle. He says he's not sure what happened after that and declined further comment.

Did he get to drive the police car then, too?

Thanks JM, the squirrels ate the link on my commador23. "Here, hold my IV and watch this!"

I'm guessing this will amount to an additional $4000 (or so) in billing to the patient.

Hmmmmmmmm ... all them fancy browser dealies have trubbles, but my ancient Safari werks fine ... one small (very small) measure of success for Mac ... considerin' how much Steve Jobs messed up my email 17 months ago, I should be happy with that, I guess ...

Prolly, Cheryl ... when I wuz an ambulance driver, we always charged by the mile, payable in advance ... unless the patient brought extra beer ...

"Fitch-Rona Emergency Medical Service Deputy Chief Dale Dow says the ambulance's emergency brake was on and paramedics were still in the back of the vehicle. He says he's not sure what happened after that and declined further comment."

How now, Dale Dow?

While skiing at old Rona-Fitch
I broke my leg; ain't that a bitch?
I awoke really drowsy
In crotchless girl's trousers
Surrounded by porn in a ditch
