Here at TQBR we don’t like to promote any violence of the non-sanctioned-outside-the-ring variety. But the above video is pretty funny. The hobo would have been a lot better off if he obeyed the old maxim “never bring a pair of crutches to a roadblock fight.” For the first time in what seems like forever, there are plenty of fights of the traditional fistic variety on this...
