What the Hell Was This Guy Thinking?

Minnesota Vikings running back Onterrio Smith, who has already been suspended twice by the NFL for violating its drug policy was caught a few weeks ago at an airport with "The Original Whizzinator". For those of you unfamiliar with "The Original Whizzinator", it is a device that can be used to beat drug tests. More specifically, the Whizzinator consists of heating pads, dried urine, a plastic bag that is to be filled with water during a drug test, and a prosthetic penis. And no I am not making this up, you can go to their website and check it out for yourself. Smith claims that the Whizzinator was not his and that he was taking the device to his cousin (about as an effective defense as that's not my pot). The NFL has yet to decide whether they will punish Smith though if the Vikings were smart they would cut Smith ASAP. This guy just does not get it. You would think after two drug suspensions that Smith would want to avoid even the appearance of taking illegal substances, but no. Apparently, Smith smoked away too many brain cells at Tennessee to use that kind of logic.
