These press releases from the OPP re drinking and driving are a little consternating (sic) because we know we’re taking the risk.

No excuses today peeps.

You get in a car with a beer and a half in you?

You’re gonna’ blow over the new limit of .05.

It doesn’t take a genius to do the computations. Let your consicence be your guide.

And have I driven drunk? I’m a chronic alcoholic – diagnosed by six experts with all kinds of degrees to back up their assertions – who just doesn’t happen to drink anymore. Of course I have. Past past tense. So am I a little preachy on the subject? No. I’m pissed on the subject.

Because you guys and gals who drink and drive are putting me and my friends in jeopardy every time you let your pea sized, alcohol-flooded brains take on a decision you are obviously incapable of making.

So here from my friends at the OPP are the latest alleged miscreants who decided sometime on a long weekend to embark on a journey drunk.

Thanks to the OPP for getting the message out.

And that dear knuckleheads is the info gleaned from another weekend in cottage country.

Hey! Here’s an idea. Buy a foldable bike. Put it in your car trunk.

When you stumble out of a bar?

Unfold it and try to ride it.

If you can’t?

Call a cab.
