Now YOU Can Be the Fastest AND Laziest Hoon On the Block!
Have you ever had things to do in a day, but just couldn’t bring yourself to drag your butt out of your ultra-comfy La-Z-Boy recliner? Well, haven’t we all? Why, some of us are facing that dilemma right now. If it weren’t for the fact that the coffee maker is all the way over there, I probably wouldn’t move at all!
UPDATED: We’ve found it on eBay!
Well, as you may have heard last week, Dennis Anderson of Proctor, Minnesota thought he had solved this timeless quandry; shortly thereafter, however, he was pulled over for DUI… while driving his gasoline-engined La-Z-Boy recliner. He pleaded guilty to the charge, and the police impounded the lawn mower go-kart vehicle chair. While I’m certainly puzzled over this, as in many areas a motorized wheelchair is not considered a “vehicle”, but a mobility aid, so the most you can be charged with for driving one while under the influence is a standard Punk In Drublic misdemeanor ticket. Even if you’ve managed to use it to get a good high-speed run down a hill, up a ramp, and over a public swimming pool.
Or… uh… so I hear. But I digress.
At any rate, the chair is now going up for sale. Podunk Proctor police have decided that they can’t determine an appropriate use for the chair for official police business, so it’s going to be sold on eBay.
We think someone needs to buy it, and give it back to Mr. Anderson so that this horrible travesty of justice may be repeated remedied.
Thanks to the Legendary Jo Schmo for the tip!

UPDATED: Jo Schmo managed to locate the actual eBay listing! Unfortunately, its already out of LeMons price territory, unless you could sell off some of the parts, like, say, the NOS bottle on the back. Quick, someone buy it, and find out what its ‘Ring time is.
