I never know what to tell the officer when I’m pulled over for speeding (“Sorry, sorry, so very sorry” is usually the best I can do). Justin Vonkummer, however, takes the prize for creative excuses. When stopped for speeding through a small Connecticut town, he blamed his driving on an Oreo cookie that had gone astray.

According to an AP article: “Vonkummer told the trooper that an Oreo had just slipped from his fingers as he dunked it in a cup of milk, and that he was trying to fish it out when he lost control of his car.”

This being America, he should probably turn around and sue Nabisco, maker of the cookie, for being so brainwashed by its commercials that he couldn’t enjoy his Oreo without milk, thus endangering his life and the lives of others. Perfect.
