Foolish Man


An Italian fathers' rights activist says he tried unsuccessfully to self-immolate on live television to call attention to dads unable to see their kids.
OK, this was a cry for help.... But I also don't think it was gasoline he poured down his front. As anyone who has gotten gasoline on his testadingadangleaderos can tell you, this guy wasn't hopping around and whimpering enough for it to have been gasoline. It burns.

An errant splash of gasoline got me back in the early 80's, and my eyes didn't stop watering until Bill Clinton was halfway through his second term.
