Man convicted in orange rabbit pedicab hit-and-runFriday, October 30, 2009

So there you have it - "Sorry, Mate, I Didn’t See You (SMIDSY), although you were dressed as a giant orange rabbit and riding a large, brightly lit pedicab. I was doing something more important than paying attention to the road - looking for my cellphone. Because, like, it was a really important call I was in the middle of".
Y’know, when I put it like that, it all makes a weird sort of sense.
