Don’t not drink and Drive!

I’m getting a little weary of political so-called “news.” There is the possibility that many of us will be so worn out from the deluge of political bullshit that by the time the election comes around we’ll will just skip the whole thing. Of course the networks give us a ton of minutiae about the candidates, but it would be nice to know what else is going on in the world. So, today let’s lighten it up a bit. Let Hillary and Bernie and Donald and “Lyin’ Ted” have a rest. Here is just a funny story. I hope you get a laugh out of it.

Only a person in Georgia could think of this.

Recently a routine police patrol car parked outside a bar in Ludiwici, GA. After last call, the officer noticed a man leaving the bar apparently so intoxicated that he could barely walk. The man stumbled around the parking lot a few times, with the officer quietly observing.

After what seemed an eternity in which he tried his keys on five different vehicles, the man managed to find his car and fall into it. He sat there for a few minutes as a number of patrons left the bar and drove off. Finally, he started the car, switched the windshield wipers on and off—it was a fine and dry summer night—flicked the blinkers on and off a couple of times, honked the horn and then switched on the lights.

He moved the car forward a few inches, reversed a little and then remained still for a few more minutes as some more of the other patrons’ cars left the lot. At last when his was the only car left in the parking lot, he pulled out and slowly drove down the road.

The police officer having waited patiently all this time, now started his patrol car, put on the flashing lights and promptly pulled the man over. He made him exit the car and administered a breathalyzer test. To his amazement, the breathalyzer indicated that the man had consumed no alcohol at all. Dumbfounded, the officer said, “I’ll have to ask you to accompany me to the police station. This breathalyzer must be broken.”

“I doubt it,” said the truly proud Redneck. “Tonight I’m the designated…decoy.”
