They Took My Lamborghini!

They Took My Lamborghini!

If you exceed the speed limit in Denmark, getting a speeding ticket is the least of your problems. A new law allows police departments to confiscate vehicles from drivers who are caught going too fast. In one recent encounter, cops in Copenhagen caught a driver going 147 mph and — under this law — were allowed to confiscate his car … which just happened to be a $310,000 Lamborghini Huracane. My question is, what kind of car were the cops driving to catch him?!

An Illinois woman who visited Yellowstone National Park last spring has been sentenced to four days in jail because she allowed a grizzly bear and her cubs to get too close to her. 25-year-old Samantha Dehring was less than 100 yards away.

For Halloween, Dress As A Box Of Wine!

The pandemic has helped reduce under-aged drinking, in a strange way. A good, fake ID is not getting a lot of kids past the bouncers at the doors of bars because some bars are also requiring a COVID vaccination card, and those cards contain the real birth date, which doesn’t match the one on the phony ID. I’m sure the kids are working diligently to work out the problem. (The Daily Beast)

Your Halloween costume dreams just came true! Franzia (the wine in a box company) has a wine box costume that can actually hold and pour wine. You can check it out on the  Franzia online store.
