Hold on to your hats everyone, this madman is speeding down the road. Is he driving a Ferrari 599 GTO ? A Porsche Panamera ? Maybe a Lamborghini LP570-4 Superleggera ? No, folks, we are sorry to say that this drunken fellow was hightailing it down his street in Essex in a pink Barbie toy car. Paul Hutton, a former RAF aeronautical engineer, was helping his son with a project for his car mechanics course when he decided that he simply had to take the car out for a spin. Maxing out at 4mph, the Barbie car is suitable for children between the ages of 3-5. Of course, when you’ve been drinking, your mental capacity can sometimes lead you to act like you’re between the ages of 3-5, so Hutton went for a ride. We can’t figure out what was more embarrassing: driving around in a pink Barbie car or receiving a DUI while driving around in a pink Barbie car. It’s simply a no win situation.
Hutton’s thoughts on the situation?
"You have to be a contortionist to get in, and then you can’t get out. I was very surprised to get done for drunk-driving but I was a twit to say the least.”
Yes, sir, to say the least. Hutton received a three year ban from driving only because this was his second DUI in ten years. We assume the last time he received the DUI he was riding a Hello Kitty model.
The judge’s comments?
"The vehicle is not even capable of doing the speed of a mobility scooter and could be outrun by a pedestrian."
After a few good, long laughs we figured this was the epitome of drunken hilarity.
