Is this amusing/sad, or tragic/sad?

Man drinks hairspray in store; busted for shoplifting

When [the store’s loss prevention officer] confronted him, he noted the man appeared to be under the influence of alcohol. The man admitted drinking two bottles of spray. He also told White that he is “a hard-core alcoholic,” who drinks the spray for the alcohol in it.

The man had $15 in his pocket at the time. White asked him why he didn’t just go to a liquor store and buy a bottle of liquor.

“The temptation was too great” in the store, the man replied. He also admitted to being in Wal-Mart on previous occasions and drinking hair spray.

I’ve heard of alcoholics drinking Listerine™, but hairspray is a new one.
