    Police baffled at speed-driving Muppet



    There’s driving like an animal, and there’s driving like an Animal. And police in Bayreuth, Bavaria are scratching their heads over someone doing the latter.

    Animal from The Muppet Show has repeatedly been spotted speeding in an Audi with British licence plates, reports Ninemsn.com.au. Well, kind of.

    Since Bavarian speed cameras are trained to zoom in on left-hand drive cars, and the British vehicle is a right-hand drive one, pictures show what appears to be the grinning plush toy of the frenetic drummer careening down city streets.

    Upon examining the photos, a British newspaper suspects the smirking stuffed toy could also be Grover or Ernie from Sesame Street.

    “Because this is a British vehicle, we can never get a decent picture," an officer told The Daily Star.

    "The driver has obviously worked this out because he has placed a large puppet in the passenger seat. This may be an example of the famous British sense of humour, but it is still dangerous driving.”

    Police have released the picture in efforts to locate the still-unidentified driver. The car was captured doing 155 km/h in a maximum 120 km/h zone.

    Under German law, licence plates don’t carry enough information to prosecute the driver.

    Cause the steering wheel is on the wrong side. Japanese people do it too.

    i think the wheel position is determined by left- or right-hand traffic, not vice versa.

    That's a fairly stupid idea. Stop being stupid.
