Just when you think you've seen all the stupid you need to see, along comes a guy like Argos offensive lineman Rob Murphy.
His imbecilic tweets have landed him in hot water with his team, the Canadian Football League and anyone else who has a brain in their head.
What would possess this idiot to make racially offensive tweets while a member of a professional sports team is something that nobody will ever been able to explain.
In this day and age where mindless social networking has caused pain and suffering for thousands of nitwits, how could such basic common sense escape this guy?
I guess the obvious answer is that he's taken too many shots to the head but that's too easy.
The answer is more like this, he's an asshole.
At this very moment there are people all over the world getting stung and stung hard by hitting a send button without using their heads. There are people losing jobs and friends and family relations because of dumb-ass things they've written on twitter, facebook or web pages.
How did Rob Murphy not clue into this?
How could this guy become a professional athlete with an increased profile and obligation to image of so many others and tweet about "smelly foreigners and Frenchland."
Here are the tweets. Pumped to be smelling foreigners this early in the A.M. They smell less offensive this way ... little known fact."
It is so horrifically stupid you can only deduce that he really believes what he writes.
Some might argue that being a CFL player doesn't qualify has high profile, but it does, and more importantly it makes him a target. How did he not think about this?
There millions of offensive tweets being made as I write this by people who don't matter. They don't have a "name" or a special identity so in essence they get away with it or they're written off as idiots without really paying for it.
By pulling on an Argonaut jersey every week, Murphy has a unique status that changes the rules for him when it comes to stupid, but again, he obviously didn't grasp this.
All it took was one person to grab one tweet because it was coming from an Argonaut and the rest his history.
Murphy has defended himself by saying this - "Obviously my recent tweets have gotten blown out of proportion. I'm sorry if I offended anyone by my recent comments. I was JOKING around"
Sorry jerk off but that doesn't cut it.
You've not only embarrassed yourself, but a team and an entire league.
The Argos play in Montreal this weekend. I wonder if the fans will be able to smell your stupidity.

Ear Wax, getting old pains, hair growth, feet problems and family video.

I had a video camera that I bought back in the 90's and I have no idea where it is. But that's only part of the problem. Here's the biggest part.
I have about half a dozen tapes filled with wonderful family memories that are on those tapes and I have no way to transfer them.
It was a Sony Super 8, I can't tell you the model number but the pictures I've provided show the tape format it used.
If anyone out there has a camera I could borrow or buy I'd love to hear from you.
I understand there are places you can go and have the tapes transferred at a hefty cost, but I'd rather transfer the taps to digital myself and only grab what I need or want.
Having said that, if you can recommend some "transfer places" I'll appreciate that as well.
Loving ya's all, each and every one of ya.

"I'm just trying to keep people happy."
Who is she trying to kid? If the sweet and innocent Courtney Winkels was trying to keep people happy during the G-20 summit, why didn't she turn her ass around and blow the bubbles into the "people" instead of two police officers.
Good for Constable Adam Josephs who probably had to put up with his fair share of crap from every mis-informed punk agitator who slithered onto the streets of Toronto a few weeks ago.
Anybody who really thinks Courtney Winkels was just an innocent little protestor who was abused by police needs their head read.
She knew exactly what she was doing. She was in the face of the police with the sole intention of getting a reaction... and she got one.
The first question that comes to my mind is this. Would she walk up to anyone else in the street and start blowing bubbles in their face? Probably not because it's invading someone else's territory, ironically the type of thing the likes of Winkels would definately protest against.
I love the way the some of the media has tried to paint a picture of a big bad police officer pickin' on a fun filled woman who wasn't doing anything wrong.
Officer Bubbles hit the nail on the head when he accused Winkels of baiting police. That's exactly what she was doing, and like so many of the other assholes that crept onto the streets of Toronto during the G-20 she got exactly what she asked for, she got arrested.
But not for this actual incident interestingly enough, believe it or not after she was warned by Officer Bubbles to put the bubbles away, which she did, she was arrested for something else.
You'd think the moron would have gotten the message.
Part of me was hoping fallout from the G-20 was over, but no such luck. There is still a band of assholes out there trying to make the police look bad with their selective videos and second hand stories.
And what about the goof ball who steps into the conversation between Constable Josephs and sweet little Courtney and accuses of Josephs of not showing any respect.
Is this guy for real? Is he that much of a imbecile to not appreciate what the cops had to go through that weekend and that the last thing needed was some punk blowing bubbles in their faces.
Man oh man.
The asshole brigade should stop releasing these videos because all its doing to is driving a bigger wedge between rational thinking people and yahoos.
Toronto should be proud of Constable Adam Josephs.
