More Tales of Our Fine Citizenry

What was that I said about people in Mid-Cape having taken stupid pills?

Man charged with driving backhoe under the influence of alcohol

"BARNSTABLE, Mass (AP) A man who had a few too many drinks was pulled over in an unusual traffic stop after he took a backhoe he ''found'' at a worksite for an early morning drive, police said."

Actually, I will admit to have some sympathy for the guy. Once I was at an outdoor festival and very drunk, and I became seized with this notion to drive a golf cart. Fortunately, the spousal unit was there and "talked me down" from this notion.
