OK, So Maybe 'White Trash' Is Synonymous With 'Drunken Stupidity'

White Trash Wednesday

Whiteski Trashski Wednesdayski, Thursday Edition. Man Drives Off Bridge, Lands In Tree:

A drunk Russian escaped unhurt after careering off a bridge in his car and landing in the branches of a tree 30ft below.

Nikolay Voronov, from Tomsk, was driving home after a night boozing with pals when he lost control of his Toyota Carina.

He smashed through barriers on the side of a bridge going over the River Ushaika, Komsomolskaya Pravda reported.

But instead of plunging into the waters 60ft below, the car fell 30ft and landed in the top branches of the only tree within miles.

Rescue services who were called out by passersby who spotted the car perched on the top of the tree said Voronov was unhurt.

The car, which they managed to lower down from the tree using a winch, suffered only minimal damage.

And if I'm going to be late, I'd better bring some more. Like maybe some more Arby's:

Sometimes, you'll do anything to get your hands on some Arby's.

Two North Platte, Neb., men are facing up to 20 years in jail for allegedly breaking into an Arby's Roast Beef Restaurant (search) while drunk to fire up the grill in the middle of the night, according to the North Platte Bulletin.

Police said quite a fiesta ensued, with beer cans lying everywhere and the fryers fired up once officers arrived at the scene.

Eighteen-year-olds Ian M. Nichelsen and Tyler P. Clouatre apparently felt so at home inside the restaurant that they answered a phone from a 911 operator who had been tipped off by an Arby's employee who arrived to open for the day at 4:30 a.m. and saw two men inside.

And what White Trash Wednesday (sort of) would be complete without a meth reference?

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) David Douglas Griffy II's alleged escape from authorities seemed to be going well when he broke free from deputies and jumped into the Kanawha River.

But deputies weren't too worried: Griffy was still handcuffed behind his back. Authorities waited for him on the riverbank and took him into custody again.

Police believe Griffy, 23, smashed a Dollar General store window with a tire tool so another man could steal cold medicine used to make methamphetamine.

It's White Trash Wednesday (sort of)! Take the whole tour:
