While spinning about the intrawebs, I came across these photos:

The first photo:



Truck hits guard rail and flips end over end over that culvert.

The second photo:

Holy Shit!

I think the truck would've come out ok if it fell down that chasm. Haven't you seen that Toyota commercial. Now if it was a Ford, who knows.

Why does everyone take snopes word as gold?

They were wrong about the "In the butt, Bob"

Wow, is that what Snopes.com has always looked like???

That's one of the worst web designs I've seen in a long time.
It looks like one of those domain squatter pages.

As far as the accident. Yikes!

Sweet Lord! I went "AAAAAAAAH" for a full 5 seconds when I opened the spoiler pic. Can you imagine how the driver felt when he landed?

I think the driver felt he needed a new set of underwear.

But if the driver was drinking I bet people would be hoping he fell over the edge.

They put a lot of research time into their debunking. That doesn't mean they are always right, but I bet they are right more times than not, and I doubt they've been wrong more than 2% of the time (just guesstimating). Same thing with Mythbusters...fans all the time challenge their busted myths. I swear on my old Oldsmobile that I did get better gas mileage when I didn't run my gas or air conditioning, and I could prove it come tank filling time. But they busted that myth, so what do you do?

But with the Newlywed Game one, can you blame them for saying it was false? For YEARS Bob Eubanks vehemently denied it ever happened. Once the clip finally surfaced, they changed it to true, but before the clip was made public what else were they supposed to go by? And, to Bob's credit, the contestant NEVER actually said the words, "That would be up the butt, Bob."
