I was watching the news early this morning when they started a piece on fence plowing. Yeah, I had the same reaction: “What the hell is that?” Then they showed a clip a guy had recorded with a surveillance camera he planted after having his fence plowed a few times. Apparently it’s the latest “teen craze.” Here’s a video I found on You Tube:


Yeah, I had the same reaction: “Why?”

Don’t these guys have anything better to do?

This came to me in an email a while back. They purportedly come from actual Dallas Police Department dash-cam video. I omitted the ones I thought were lame:

"Relax; the handcuffs are tight because they're new. They'll stretch out after you wear them awhile."

"If you run, you'll only go to jail tired."

"So you don't know how fast you were going. I guess that means I can write anything I want on the ticket, huh?"

My cousin and me, Arizona, 1979 or so.

funny stuff? I can remember when i was little doing a little fence plowing...only...i was maybe 5 years old...and every time i did it i stepped on a nail and really paid for it. Oh and we didnt plow through them...we just kicked em. I havent done it since...Its amazing how doing something dumb twice...and you dont do it a third time.

Fence plowing - wow! What idiots. I just keep thinking "they are going to impale themselves on a jagged piece of wood, then how fun will that be?"

Enjoyed the po-lice stuff. I must admit, I've tried to talk my way out of a few tickets over the years. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn't.

Great pic - the cactus in the background is amazing. You and your cousin look cool too lol.

I was gonna comment about how stupid 'plowing' is...then I remembered the time we hung a carborator from a rope between two trees and swung it back and forth as fast as possible. The object was to run between the two trees without getting wacked by the carborator.
Yeah, I ended up in the hospital with multiple stitches that day.

that fence plowing shit doesn't look like much fun, but they're probably trying to be like those guys on Jackass. That show cracks me up! It's so stupid that I can't look away. oh, and Johnny Knoxville is hot too. :) lol love the old pic!!

Gator: Working on your kung fu at such a young age. Very admirable ;-)

Sheila: Idiots! Yes! That cactus in the background spanned about 50 more feet to the right. It served as the fence between the pool area and the back acre. Mom picked a few leaves of the cactus when we first moved in and planted them. It was about five feet deep too by the way. Better than barbed wire ;-) Oh, and the jam you could make from the fruits was pretty damned good too!

Arlene: Yeah…they were total 70s shorts!!

BB Master: That’s crazy. You should post about that one!!

WebMiz: I can’t imagine it would be. I’m the same way with Jackass. Cracks me up. Wee man is my favorite. Cracks me up!

Gawd just when I thought teenagers couldn't get any dumber. What a waist of sperm.
If they want to prove how tough they are the little pussy's should go to Iraq, all this is proving is stupidity. Who else is tired of hearing the lazy parents of these little morons saying they can't control what their kids do. If that's the case someone should have sterilized their stupid asses long ago because society doesn't want to take care of their fucked up dysfunctional brats anymore than they do.

Jules: That pleases me Jules!
