Man texts, "I need to quit texting," before driving off cliff

(Thanks to The Minx and Joe Wesley)

(This isn't really funny, in the opinion of the s.b., but it's really really really really really important, so I'm posting it.)

(Don't text and drive.)

(Unless you spot someone in a kilt.)

(No, really. Don't.)

(Thank you.)

I agree. It's only funny until someone gets hurt. Then it's hilarious. Or it would have been if his last text had been "aieeeeeeeeeeeee!"

I want my last text to be "I've got to stop running with scissors and texting! I could put someone's eye out this way. Aieeeeeeee!"

Omni, I want my last text to say, "Oh look! My tall, hunky 20 year old boyfriend is here and he's wearing his kilt. Gotta go." But that's just me.

Amen. There's stupid and REALLY STUPID.

There is an element of irony to this story that is, in fact, funny. We'd all be laughing our arses off if this were presented in a Monty Python skit.

In fact, I am reminded of the scene from The Holy Grail: "Here may be found the last words of Joseph of Aramathia. He who is valiant and pure of spirit may find the holy grail in the Castle of Aaauuuggghhh..."

I would like my last text to be "Thank you, great-grandson, for the 103rd birthday gift of a bucket of condoms."

Judi, this is why you should have voice-activated Speed dial text alerts for your kilt sightings. No danger except your increased heart rate. Drive immediately to a bar and have a nice chablis...

My last text will be "At nuclear missile launch facility. What does this big red button do?"

As of August 1st, drivers in Alabama will face a $25 fine the first time they are caught texting behind the wheel.

Payment may be made in person; by mail; or will be deducted from the estate at probate.

There's a special place in Darwin's pantheon for texters. I'm sure the inventor of the texting (& cellphone/smartassphone) has his own personal handbasket.

My last text will likely be: Watch this!

In whatever form, I've always wanted my last words to be: Dam#, that was fun!
Who else with words of wisdom (or other)?
