Recently a man in Ohio was arrested and pleaded not guilty to charges of operating a vehicle while intoxicated. This wouldn’t have been newsworthy if the guy hadn’t been driving a motorized BAR STOOL! (To see a photo of the “vehicle” visit this link: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/03/31/kile-wygle-gets-dui-on-mo_n_181264.html.)
I can’t decide which is funnier: the fact that this driver pleaded innocent, or the idea that anyone would motorize an object that’s difficult enough to balance upon when one is both sober and stationary.
When folks start strapping lawnmower engines to furniture, it’s time for a significant decline in automobile and gasoline prices.
I figure this guy was given several citations. (How could he have obtained a registration license and insurance for a gas-powered bar stool?) Wouldn’t you have loved to have read the police officer’s report? Especially the part that listed the make and model of the vehicle: Toro Bistro, 24-inch, convertible, modified.
This is one time when the alleged DUI offender can honestly say he never even left his stool!
