Idiot update: David Winkleman

http://abclocal.go.com/wls/story?sec...rre&id=7693065

Everyone has regrets in life. But usually those mistakes are not as obvious to everyone else.

David Jonathan Winkelman got the call letters and logo for radio station KORB tattooed on his forehead.

The 48-year-old heard the station jokingly offer a six-figure payout for any listeners who dared to do it.

When the station explained that it was just a stunt, Winkelman sued, claiming the station was trying to permanently mark listeners so that they could "be publicly scorned and ridiculed for their greed and lack of common good sense."

The mug shot above is the result of Winkelman's arrest last week in Davenport, Iowa. He's charged with failing to appear in court for operating a motor vehicle without the owner's consent.

Winkleman's stepson got the tattoo as well in the same place. But he's had some good luck -- no mug shot.

It gets worse. The radio station has since changed its call letters and switched from hard rock to easy listening.

Well they were always greedy and lacking of common sense, they just now have a logo to tell people about it on their forehead. Kind of like Here's your sign, only he is receiving the sign all the time.

Was the court case resolved? Unless the DJs game a disclaimer saying it was a joke, he may have a case.

That tattoo isn't any more ridiculous than a butterfly. At least this guy has originality going for him.

Their case against the Radio station was dismissed. The Judge's opinion was that, even if the offer had been genuine, these idiots should have called and checked the details before getting the tattoos.

Wow, that guy was arrested in Davenport, Iowa. One look at him, and I assumed Florida, but I guess that's why you should never assume.

Reminds me of this local woman who accepted $10,000 to have the Goldenpalace.com logo tattooed on her forehead.

Besides being in dire need of brains, he could use some dentures.

In addition to the humiliation, that would hurt like a motherfucker.
