For all the "build the dang fence" advocates, or people who like to laugh at idiots, here you go -- someone tried to drive over the border fence near Yuma yesterday, and failed.

According to the Border Patrol, the drivers were smugglers were on their way into the United States.

As you can see in the video above, taken by Customs and Border Patrol, the peak of their ramp fence was a bit too high, and that Jeep got stuck on the top of the fence.

The two people in the Jeep skedaddled back to Mexico.
