Something you don't see every day...

On the way home from a work trip in Philadelphia, we saw a car pulled over on the Belt parkway. The large sized sedan, with a "Rent-A-Car" sign on it. Not as big as a Lincoln Town Car or anything. (This is important.) Why was it pulled over? Because it had a sofa sticking out of its trunk. Boing! They had maybe the first section's-worth in the trunk, and the rest of it was sticking out of the trunk at about a 45 degree angle. No flag on the back, nothing securing it around the end. There were bungee cords or something pulling the trunk door down, but nothing keeping the sofa from falling out backwards. Brilliant. It costs $20 to rent a small U-Haul truck that would have accommodated that sofa easily, but some moron rented a car? Probably twice the price (or more)? Not counting the cost of the ticket. Need to keep a camera in the glove box. It was hysterical.
