This weekend in stupid tourists playing chicken with cars in a busy East Village intersection

Thanks to the good people over at The Late Adopter for sharing this link with us...

Just after midnight on Avenue A and Seventh Street, two reportedly "drunken tourists" started playing in the traffic....




According to The Late Adopter, the two were singing loudly and wildly running in front of cabs and cars, at one point lying down in the street. "After about 15 minutes a police van rolled up and detained the drunker of the two. Eventually an ambulance showed up too so kudos to NYPD for safety first."


My guess is that they were new singles who moved here.

The Late Adopter has more photos here.

Maybe they were doing a promotion feat for a zany upcoming Ashton Kutchie gag show.

No Jewels action--so they struck a pose or poses as the case might be.

A perfect chance to rid the gene pool of two of its more damaged elements, and no one hit them. Now that's a damned shame.

Friday was i-n-s-a-n-e, 5:30am with the "whooo hoo!" all night. I live on the 5th floor, windows closed, it was still deafening.

As for the two nutjobs here, I wish harm on no one, but the Darwin Awards could have easily had two new nominees.
