The Unicorn Was Driving

I don't know what to say here.

DUI suspect alleges unicorn caused crash
BILLINGS, Mont. (UPI) -- A Montana man suspected of causing a car crash while driving drunk allegedly told police that a unicorn was driving his car at the time of the crash. Deputy County Attorney Ingrid Rosenquist said at Phillip Carston Holliday Jr.'s arraignment in Yellowstone County that the 42-year-old claimed the mythical creature was at the wheel of his truck at the time of the March 7 accident, the Billings (Mont.) Gazette reported. Holliday allegedly was driving under the influence in Billings when his truck went through a red light, struck another vehicle and then made a U-turn before hitting a utility pole. Two police officers were on hand at the time to witness the crash. Holliday has five prior DUI convictions and has amassed 53 traffic violations, the newspaper said. He has been convicted 28 times for driving with a suspended driver's license.

I have to take the drivers word on this one. First the driver states that a unicorn was driving his "car" and later states the unicorn was driving his "truck". This would lead me to believe that something quite magical occured during this ride.

Is this guy going for a Guiness Book of World Records?
28 suspended drivers license violations? Holy Cow!

Just the fact that a unicorn was there makes it magical. And where did the unicorn go? No one asked this!

As far as records go, I guess it's all in your perspective. You say 28 suspended drivers license violations like it's a lot. And I'm thinking, "only 28?"

My first car was a 500 horsepower Z28. You haven't seen my driving record!

And I still have the Z28!

28 of anything is a lot. (So is 53)

If I said I have 28 children, you would think that's a lot
of kids, wouldn't you??? Then you would think, Oh shit, it breeds.............

I'm betting the unicorn jumped out of the car/truck
right after the crash and hitched a ride with a pink
elephant...possibly. Maybe Copperfield had a hand in this. He has to try these tricks out some where before
he tries them in front of a live audience.

If you think 28 of anything is a lot, take your family to a nice place for dinner and tell the restaurant that you have 28 dollars!

I'm betting they don't say, "That's a lot!".

Copperfield? We'll have to look into that! I'm going to catch that cheater one of these days!

If one considers McDonalds, Wendy's or Burger King
nice places, it could be done.
I consider them a place to drop a turd in your stomach
until more suitable consumables can be attained at a later point in time.
I know Patty can whip up a much better meal
than I can usually get elsewhere. It's nice to give her a break and go out to eat from time to time. (not fast food) As my wife herself will point out, we could have saved a small chunk of change and enjoyed a better meal at home. Home is my favorite restaurant. It's always open, the food is good and I know the chef personally.

What you mentioned earlier is true.
It is in how things are perceived.

Perception is such a significant and powerful tool which can change peoples lives.

Good perception can help a person immensely, while bad perception can harm a person or otherwise set that person’s position in life back quite an amount.

For instance, three different individuals see a structure.

The first person might say, “What an astonishing example of architecture this structure is. Additionally, the fact that it is sitting alone out here in the country significantly adds to it’s magnificence! I simply must take a picture of it.”

Then the second person, upon seeing the same structure might say, “That’s the bank where I keep my money. I think I‘ll stop and get some.”

And the third one might see it in this way, “Whoa, here’s a bank out in the middle of nowhere. I think I'll rob it!”

There are three different perceptions, three different responses and three different results from seeing the same item.
