Nashua Telegraph: Motorcyclist hurt during stunt

A Nashua man is in rough shape after falling off his Harley Davidson on Route 101 on Saturday, police reported.

Carl Hannigan, 51, was going east on Route 101 in the area of West Intervale Road at about 12:14 p.m. Saturday, standing upright on the seat of his 1974 Harley Davidson, when he fell off, police reported.

Be sure to read the comments posted there by some of this rocket scientist's relatives, in which they try to rationalize his idiocy as some kind of innocent hobby of his, as if it was no big deal.

I'll take "Rivers in Egypt" for $800, please, Alex.

...he is a stuntman, he was doing a stunt he had done before.

Just so long as your definition of "stuntman" includes the phrase "sub-moronic jackass of colossal proportion".

But, my favorite has to be:

"He may have done something stupid..."

Like that's up for debate.

UPDATE: Perhaps, Mrs. Hannigan could do the people of New Hampshire a favor and follow this Maryland woman's example. At least, it would keep her reckless jackass of a husband off the road for a while.

OCEAN CITY, Md. -- A Tennessee woman is accused of hitting her husband where it really hurts -- in the Harley.

Barbara Waskey is charged with torching her husband's Harley in the Maryland resort town of Ocean City.

If it saves just one life...
