This week's simpleton is Todd Grannis.
Grannis, a 38-year-old man, climbed up a 10-foot scaffold, set his gasoline-drenched cape on fire, plunged into a swimming pool, and then took the plunge. After the stunt, he got down on one knee and proposed to his girlfriend.
Grannis' fiancÃ©e was initially upset at the stunt but nonetheless said "Yes." Apparently she missed the huge warning signs.
No, Grannis isn't this week's simpleton because he proposed. He's the simpleton because he set himself on fire in order to propose. Keep in mind that, even though he got help from a stuntman, he is not a stuntman himself. A more compelling headline could have been "Man Dies in Fiery Proposal Attempt."
