Drat that stupid horse! (or) Alcohol seldom makes you smarter


A Polish farmer is facing jail for being drunk in charge of both a horse and a lorry at the same time.

Leszek Stepien, 62, of Skwierzyna, used his farm horse to tow his broken down truck to the garage but had drunk so much he couldn’t steer straight. The impromptu carriage ground to a halt when the farmer managed to steer straight into the path of an oncoming car, sending the truck tumbling onto its side.

Stepien wasn’t about to take the blame for the collision, however. Uninjured, he sprang from the cab and proceeded to berate the poor beast, yelling: “This is all your fault.”

Tank driving tip: Don’t fall asleep

Red faced army officials have apologised after a tank left a trail of destruction when its driver nodded off at the controls.

The South Korean military vehicle was returning from an all night training exercise near the North Korean border when it suddenly accelerated and veered off the road.

The massive tank crushed two cars before ploughing into four trucks as terrified drivers and pedestrians ran for cover.
