Several guests at a weekend fishing tournament on Lake Winnebago in Wisconsin decided to leave their cars on the "frozen" lake when they couldn't find parking.

Bad idea.

Turns out the thin ice was unable to hold so many heavy cars parked tightly together and, soon enough, the lake swallowed 36 of them, 18 of which were fully submerged.

Check out the clip above to see for yourself. Fortunately, no one was actually in the cars when they sank, so there were no injuries, but we're sure some of the drivers are in for some serious financial hurt in the very near future.

      This is one of those priceless moments. The scariest part though is that you had 36 of the dumbest people on the planet in one place at the same time. Clue here?

      In New Hampshire we create a runway and land airplanes on lake Winnipesaukee. I'm not sure about this year though, we've had a lot of unusual 50 degree days this February and one 60 degree day. We've also had close to zero snow all winter.

      My friend told me MillionaireLoveLinks.C/O/M. It's the place where you can meet millionaires, who are searching for their special someone. (@^_^@) Did she really say that Lake Winnebago was 5 hours WEST of the Twin Cities?!? She is a reporter, correct? Isn't that something that she should've fact checked if she didn't know which direction it was in?!? Just saying....
