Stolen from the Yahoo news "Oddly enough" ===================================== Blow Drying Excuse Fails to Save Speeding Driver Wed Jun 16, 7:18 AM ET Add Oddly Enough - Reuters to My Yahoo! WELLINGTON (Reuters) - A New Zealand man caught driving at more than twice the legal speed limit claimed he needed to step on the gas in order to blow dry his car. Roger Daniel, 37, made the novel excuse after he was nabbed traveling at more than 75 mph in a 30 mph zone in the northern town of Whangarei, the Dominion Post newspaper reported on Wednesday. "I have a bad back and just thought I would do that to dry the car instead of having to chamois it dry," he told police. The explanation failed to impress and Daniel was fined $191 and had his license suspended for six months.
