I know this is sad, but it's also funny. I mean, how often do you hear of a guy getting passed-out drunk then floating out to sea on a child pool floatie? Only to be found by a rich guy on a yacht who thinks he's found a dead guy. Who calls in the Coast Guard. Who comes in and picks up the guy (whose name is Mr. Whipple by the way) and takes him in and processes him. Who may get charged for "operating a seafaring craft while under the influence." I mean, you can't make this stuff up. Truth is certainly, once again, stranger than fiction.
Mr. Whipple, you, Sir, win the coveted "Stupid Person of the Day" award.
