Default Ford trucks and black boxes

The National Transportation and Safety Board recently divulged they had covertly funded a project with the auto maker Ford for the past five years, whereby the auto makers were installing black boxes in four-wheel drive pick-up trucks in an effort to determine the cause of fatalities in accidents.

They were surprised to find in almost all states the last words of drivers in 61.2 percent of fatal crashes were, "Oh, ****!"

Only the state of Missouri was different, where 89.3 percent of the final words were: "Hold my beer and watch this!"

Hmm Ive never seen that one used with Missouri, there are far more redneckish states out there IMO.

Still funny though
