I can’t say I haven’t thought of it.


In Arizona, a 62-year-old driver’s in a heap of trouble.

He’s sittin’ in hot water because of what he was doing in a carpool lane.

If you’re unfamiliar with HOV lanes, I’ll explain them to you on behalf of Los Angeles.

Here’s the idea:

In a gigantic city — where no one’s going to the same place from the same place at the same time with no plans to go anywhere else any time else different than one another — the state legislature takes a 4-lane freeway that’s far, far, far too congested and completely eliminates one of the lanes, creating instead a system of only three much, much, much more congested lanes and then one lane that nobody can drive in because everyone’s by themselves due to what I gave you at the beginning of this sentence.


But a Tempe wheelman hoofing it on State Road-101 near Apache Boulevard had a clever idea.

He took an old, fake skeleton in ratty, mummy-like clothing and a heavy-concealment hat and placed it into the passenger seat.


*Instant access to the forbidden zone*

Sadly, part of his cloakery was tinted windows, which — presumably — was what snagged the attention of cops.

He got pulled over and handed a ticket for a tinting violation and an HOV ruse.

And those carpool tickets are…well, I’ll make no bones about it: They’re highway robbery.

Really, I don’t know why the government would have such a problem with a skeleton in the front seat.

It’s like undocumented immigrants: The dead can already vote; why not let them drive?
