This clever woman found a snake in her back yard. Her very bizarre response was to throw gasoline on it and light it on fire. It predictably ran way, set a pile of leaves on fire, which then set her house on fire. Her house was completely destroyed, and part of her neighbor’s house was destroyed. I’m really not sure anybody will be able to beat this in terms of stupidity this year!
