I don't condone drinkdriving, but this is funny.


From the State of Texas, comes a true story about drinking wisely. Recently a routine police patrol was parked outside a local neighbourhood bar.

Late in the evening the officer noticed a man leaving the bar so intoxicated that he could barely walk.
The man stumbled around the parking lot for a few minutes with the officer quietly observing. After what seemed an eternity and trying his keys on five different vehicles, the man managed to find his own car, which he fell into.
He was there for a few minutes as a number of other patrons left the bar and drove off.

Finally he started the car, switched the wipers on and off (it wasn't raining), flicked the hazard lights on and off, honked the horn and then switched on the lights.

He moved the vehicle forward a few inches, reversed a little and then remained stationary for a few more minutes as more patrons left in their vehicles. At last he pulled out of the parking lot and started to drive slowly down the street.

The police officer, having patiently waited all this time, now started up his patrol car, put on his siren and lights, pulled the man over and carried out a breathalyzer test.

To his amazement the test indicated no evidence of the consumption of alcohol!!!!!

Dumbfounded, the officer said "I'll have to ask you to come down to the police station.

The breathalyzer equipment must be broken."

To which the man replied "I doubt it, Tonight I'm the designated decoy!!!!!"
