Chicken of the Sea
Obviously the loser never read the classic 1897 novel Captains Courageous or saw any of the spin off movies, and clearly he took no lessons from Captain Edward Smith who went down with the Titanic. Even when the Coast Guard demands that he climb the pilot ladder, get back on board, and help the people that are still on the sinking ship, he refuses, saying it is too dark and he is staying in the rescue boat. You know where this is going don't ya folks? He needs the clapper light. Clap on, clap off. If he had some light, things may have turned out differently. Uh yeah, I doubt it. A coward is a coward, and unless he got some courage from the Wizard of Oz his sweet ass was stayin' in the rescue boat.
Seriously, there is just no excuse for this guy. He admittedly caused the accident by steering too close to shore so he could salute a retired captain. I'm thinkin' there's about 4,200 people and their families who want to give ol' Captain Coward a different kind of salute right about now.
