A Quick Story
A freind of mine recently started working at Hy-Vee with me. Courtney Witt, for those who know her. For the last couple hours of the night tonight we were really slow, so we were just talking about random stuff, and she told me about her cousin who is a reporter in Florida. The story she related was so funny I just had to share it. Being a reporter, her cousin apparently reads the newspaper cover to cover, since he knows everyone who writes for the paper. One day he came upon a story of a guy who had gotten pulled over for drunk driving. In an effort to pass the sobriety test, the man ate his own underwear, believing that the cotton would absorb the alchohol from his system. Suprisingly the man did not choke to death, but he was still unable to pass the test. His briliant plan of course failed miserably, and he ended up having to go to trial anyway. The day that his case went before the judge, a group of middle schoolers was sitting in the gallery as part of a class assignment. They were either learning about the judicial system, or drunken idiots. One of the two. They learned all about the latter, but they probably did not learn enough about courtroom proceedings, because halfway through the trial the judge kicked all the children out of the courtroom. Their offence? Excessive giggling.
