"BEAT DRUMS! DRIVE FAST! WOMAN!"

There has been a serial speeder racing along the streets of the Bavarian city of Bayreuth. An Audi TT treating the roads like a personal Autobahn.

Speed cameras have caught an image of the driver but this has done little or nothing to slow him down. Why?

Because the driver is Animal.

That's right, the frenetic drummer from the Muppet Show.

But Animal isn't alone.  Grover and Bert’s rubber-ducky-loving sidekick Ernie are also along for the joy ride.

A German police source said: “The number plate is not enough. We need clear evidence of who is driving the vehicle too. But because this is a British vehicle we can never get a decent picture. 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.

“The driver has been caught on camera on several occasions and the puppet is on the passenger seat every time. We suspect he positions the toy deliberately before accelerating past the camera.*”




*Ya think?

I suspect Dr. Bunsen Honeydew is working with the Mythbusters to test the speed cameras of another country...
