This is how it happens, friends. The Canadians are coming, and they mean war.

Or not.

According to the Windsor Star, Canadian John Morillo created a stir yesterday when he drank eight beers, then jumped into the river and swam to Detroit.

Just to prove to his buddies he could do it.

You may be thinking, “What is this guy… Stupid?”

We here at K-HITS would prefer to think he’s awesome.

(Our lawyers would probably like us to point out that we don’t recommend anyone try swimming drunk, certainly not to another country).

Anyway, listen to what John had to say the day after he accidentally forced authorities to launch an international search party:

“If I’m going to be in the paper, I’d at least like them to say I actually made it, even though I got in trouble and everything,” Morillo, 47, told the Windsor Star. “I gotta pay fines and stuff. But I don’t want it to sound like I didn’t make it, because then my buddies are going to say ‘ha, ha, you didn’t make it.’ Because that was the whole thing, to show them I could do it.”

Yes. He made it people. And we will never forget.
