Best excuse ever.


Oh I like his style. From the BBC.

'Goat-free roads made me speed'

A Swiss man caught speeding on a Canadian highway has blamed his actions on the absence of goats on the roads.
The man was caught driving at 161 km/h (100mph) in a 100 km/h (60mph) zone.

A traffic officer's notes said the Swiss driver had said he was taking advantage "of the ability to go faster without risking hitting a goat".

Canadian police spokesman Joel Doiron said he had never found a goat on the highways of eastern Ontario in his 20 years of service.

"Nobody's ever used the lack of goats here as an excuse for speeding," Mr Doiron told the AFP news agency.

"I've never been to Switzerland, but I guess there must be a lot of goats there," he said.

The driver was ordered to pay a fine of C$360 ($330; £175) for speeding."

Well that seal it, I'm am to drive down to see a darling friend of mine in Wexford this weekend, and I must say normally I take it quite handy on the roads, but perhaps I shall go faster. If stopped I shall use, 'there were so few sheltland ponies on the road, yer guardship, I couldn't help myself.'
Superb.

If I had a plane or a copter I'd go super fast over the rooftops because of the absence of flying pigs, m'lud.

Oh Conan, think of the fun we could have if only we could use his logic daily.
'I couldn't get up early m'lud, due to an alarming lack of wildebeast in my bedroom this very morning.'
'I had to buy those shoes m'lud, there were no lions behind me at the time.'
'I realise I said I'd send you that report today, but I couldn't due to lack narwhals in the canal. So sorry.'

I mean this man is my probability factor 100 king.

It's like chaos theory for the common man.

An absence of plankton in the drive made swimming to work impossible, boss.

Btw, I see that since I am indoors birds are present overhead outdoors.

Djelloul: The Mafia has been portrayed in many ways in books and movies, and I
don't have a quarrel with these portrayals, because the Mafia is a work of many facets. Clearly, however, newspapers need to try harder to take advantage of new technologies to tell their stories in ways that attract and involve readers, young or old. Today, Most of newspapers are offering their online editions. The process of printing conditions requires alteration of flow from a fan or pump. Once the symphony begins, Paul loses himself in the sound as he had in the stuff exhibited in the picture gallery.
