Did you ever watch those “Good Idea/Bad Idea” sketches on Animaniacs? They’d be something simple but funny, like “Good idea: playing the piccolo in a marching band, Bad idea: playing the piano in a marching band.” Well, this article is basically one big Bad Idea. Two teenage girls in Maine were pulled over for speeding. Not unusual, right? Well, I’ll let the author of the original article break it down for you, because it doesn’t get funnier than this:
A car driven by a 16-year-old Eddington resident was stopped about 11 a.m. Sunday for driving 59 mph in a 35 mph zone, according to Holden police Officer Christopher Greeley.
She was wearing a T-shirt sporting a picture of a large marijuana leaf, and a plastic marijuana-shaped leaf was attached to her key chain, Greeley said Sunday afternoon. Rolling papers and a pipe were found in the car.
The driver was summoned for speeding and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Her passenger, a 17-year-old from Carmel, had a small amount of marijuana concealed in her bra, Greeley said, and a switchblade knife in her backpack. There also was a picture of a marijuana leaf on her backpack.
I’m sure that this was some sort of experiment in reverse psychology, but, hey, try to be a smidge less obvious next time. Unless you’re filming a secret scene for a Super Troopers sequel, in which case just keep doing what you’re doing.
