In Menahga, Minnesota, a man has been arrested for doing 178 miles per hour in his Corvette according to the Duluth News Tribune.
No surprise. The driver was apparently drunk.
Otherwise, he might’ve come up with a snappier answer to the obvious question.
When he approached the vehicle, Manderschied asked Johnson what the “big hurry” was, according to court documents, and Johnson replied that he was just having fun. Asked how fast he thought he was going, Johnson told Manderschied he “can’t even imagine.”
Obviously, there’s a News Cut challenge here. Come up with a more funny answer to the question.
