He Must Play For The “All Drunks”

By Wyatt Earp | June 25, 2010

Meet Paul Nigel Sneddon; a New Zealand man who takes his beer very seriously. In a country that worships rugby and kneels before soccer, Nigel attends the Basilica of Beer. In fact, he apparently values his beer more than his car, his driver’s license, and his own safety.

After reading this story, it is safe to say that Nigel is .

A drunk driver trapped after overturning his car cracked open another can of beer while he waited for emergency crews to rescue him, a New Zealand court was told.

Police found Sneddon, a former baker, trapped in his overturned Ford Laser on June 1, drinking a can of beer after he failed to take a corner properly and crashed through a wooden barrier, flipping his vehicle.

Defense lawyer Peter Young said that when Sneddon found he could not open the doors, “he had nothing else to do at that point, so he had another beer.”

Unbelievable. Imagine the other things this man would put off for beer:

“I’ll throw you a life preserver is a second, honey. Just let me tap this keg.”

“I realize the kitchen is on fire, but you’re not wasting any of my Foster’s to put your clothes out!”

    He probably had barley enough to get drunk. Probably in the wreck thinking, I hope the rescue team hops to it!

    Otherwise, it’s the funeral bier!

    Rick – Okay, that’s funny.

    Proof – And with his BAC, he’d go up like the Hindenburg.

    Fenway – That’ll set him back a bit.

    How many folks would stay calm enough in a roll over accident to remember they had a sixer in the car with them. That guy has nerves of steel!

    I think this guy should get together with the lady who did the General Lee through a toll booth at DFW.

    Or as Dennis Miller would say, “the Hinden-Bud”!

    CP – Or the cans were on the passenger seat and fell onto him.

    AJ – Some better than others.

    Jon – It’s entirely possible.
