Meanwhile, in Tennessee

From a facebook friend, apparently someone named Possum tools about town on a John Deere mower. I think my favorite part is the handicap sticker. Or the awesome parking job:

    Probably a drunk who had his license revoked and is under the mistaken impression that the mower, being unlicensed, doesn’t require him to have a driver’s license to operate.

    He’s only partially correct: he can operate it on private property legally, but when he puts it on the pavement to use for transport, it’s classed as a motor vehicle.

    If the Sheriff has space for him in the calaboose, he’ll wind up there eventually.

    I think the license plate is a George Jones shout-out. He was notorious for driving his lawn mower to the bar when he couldn’t drive due to a DUI. (Vince Gill mentions it in his song “One More Last Chance.”) And his nickname is The Possum.

    Unless, of course, it’s George Jones himself.

    Definitely a George Jones homage.

    Thats Pretty funny.I watched a guy in my neighborhood get pulled over driving down the street on his lawn tractor with a fresh 12 pack in tow.

    I should have stuck around maybe it would have been as entertaining as those Steve Vids.

    Just, you know, for what it’s worth (“Rache” is German for “revenge”…), “possum” is Latin for “I am able,” or, Englishly, “Yes I can.”

    Stop giggling in the back there. Latinists are not unheard of in Tennessee. Drunk Latinist on a JD? Got one right here. Monzadeesledoe.

    I might be willing to wager a week’s earnings that the operator of the aforementioned John Deere mower is still a far more intelligent, reasonable, rational human being than that ass-raping sack of filth that is called, “Mayor Bloomberg.”

    But then, that’s just my opinion…..
