A man who jumped into the Tennessee River and didn’t seem to resurface maybe charged by police after it was discovered he was sitting in a bar watching the search party look for him for three hours.Evidently the man had swum across the river to the Hard Dock Cafe and watched as rescue crews scoured the river looking for him. When they called off the search he got back into the water and swam back. The police then received an anonymous phone call saying there was a soaking wet man, matching the description of the missing man, walking down the street. The police allege the fool made the call himself.

Oh dear God, what the hell was he thinking ? I was really hoping this story wasn’t going to get too much media coverage as I wanted this story all to myself. But alas I was wrong. I switch on the news to catch a glimpse of Reverend Adelir de Carli’s feet dangling from a bunch of helium balloons as he floated off into a thick blanket of pollution . Not even the Darwin Awards would have seen this one coming. This crazy Roman Catholic priest from Brazil was out to break some record in the name of charity. But unfortunately not even his GPS and satellite phone could save him from the big gusts of wind that blew him (and his thousand balloons) to kingdom come. Last reports were, a search party had found millions of colorful pieces of rubber floating off the coast of Santa Catarina. It is believed he had reached heights of up to 20,000ft (6,000m), then descended to about 8,200ft (2,500m). In the last radio contact Rev Carli said he was cold. Planes and helicopters from the Brazilian air force and boats from the Brazilian navy our out looking for him. Can you imagine what they thought when they got the message ‘looking for a Roman Catholic priest in a chair attached with 1,000 balloons, last seen being blowing out to sea.’ Friggin funny.
