Really stupid thing to say

Now, really -- do you think that telling the cops that you crashed your car because of a unicorn is going to get you in less trouble?

A man told police not to blame him for crashing his truck into a light post — it was that unicorn behind the wheel. Prosecutor Ingrid Rosenquist said Phillip C. Holliday Jr. initially denied driving the truck involved in the March 7 crash in Billings. He told officers at the scene that a unicorn was driving, she said.

Holliday, 42, pleaded not guilty Tuesday to felony charges of criminal endangerment and drunken driving.

Saying something like that, sir, will cause the cops to search you for drugs.

Holy crap. I read that this morning and cracked up. And then thought that someone on the blog world would find that and post about it, if I didn't.

Love that you got to it!!!
