No Work Necessary

ridingMower.jpgThis short story, provided by ABC7Chicago, really does as good a job as is necessary for this tale. Please be sure to read to the end, because the article even includes its own true punch line:

A downstate Illinois man spent two nights in jail after riding his lawnmower while drinking.

Robert Wendt rode his lawnmower to a convenience store to get gas and a six pack of beer. On his way home, Caseyville police stopped him. They say he was driving on the wrong side of the road and appeared to be intoxicated.

Because he had a prior conviction for driving under the influence, Wendt went to jail. When he was released, he got a ticket for not mowing his lawn.
