In January, a group of Pekin, Illinois bikers were riding west on I-74 when they saw a girl about to jump off the Murray Baker Bridge, so they stopped.
Their leader George, a big burly man of 53, got off his Harley, walked through a group of gawkers past the State Trooper, and said to her, "What are you doing?"
She replied "I’m going to commit suicide."
While he didn’t want to appear "sensitive," neither did he want to miss a “be-a-legend” opportunity, either. So he asked … "Well, before you jump, why don’t you give me a kiss?"
With no hesitation at all, she leaned back over the railing and did just that … A long, deep, lingering kiss followed immediately by another one.
After that, George quickly won approval from his biker-buddies, onlookers, and even the State Trooper. He said "Wow! That was the best kiss I have ever had, Honey! That’s a real talent you’re about to waste, Sugar Shorts. You could be famous if you rode with me. Why are you committing suicide?"
"My parents don’t like me dressing up like a girl."
It’s still unclear whether she jumped or was pushed.
