This one comes to you courtesy of the folks at Gizmodo and yes your eyes aren’t deceiving you — that’s Animal from Jim Henson’s The Muppets behind the wheel of a car.
Apparently this is a REAL photo from a European traffic camera. The driver, a prankster that has been plaguing German Police for several months, has found a loophole in the traffic camera’s programming.
According to German authorities, the prankster is able to get away with breaking traffic laws because in order for a ticket to be issued they need a clear picture of the driver, and for some odd reason the cameras are programmed to take a picture of the passenger side and not the driver side. Which means that every time the German police are about to write up a ticket, they’d have to issue it to Animal from the Muppets. You’ve gotta love the absurdity of that sentence.
The most important question, besides why in the holy hell the cameras are programmed to take a picture of the passenger seat and not the driver, is whether or not Animal actually has a driver’s license. These are the thoughts that kept me out of the good schools…
