I am sure it is all very horrific for the people involved, but I couldn’t help but to laugh at the following news article:
[...] Reportedly, the driver of a charter bus carrying a high school girls’ softball team decided to casually follow the soothing turn-by-turn directions that were being emitted from the nearby GPS unit rather than actually noticing the enormous clearance sign on the overpass ahead. As you can likely guess, the 11-foot, 8-inch-high vehicle plowed right into the 9-foot bridge — which was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982 — though somehow everyone on board escaped without any major injuries. Oddly enough, the driver apparently isn’t alone in chipping away at the landmark, as a local even mentioned that “large trucks hit the bridge every two weeks or so,” but couldn’t resist noting that “this [instance was] by far the worst.”
Yah, I’m sure it happened many times before all over the world, bla bla bla. Some people I know use GPS a lot, but somehow I just can’t get the hang of it. Which doesn’t really matter to me, because as horrible as they are, KL/PJ signboards still work… even though they take you round and round and round, but hey, you get there eventually, no?
The thing that tickled my funny bone was the accompanying photo:
The expressions and poses of the two policemen are just classic. So whoever can come up with the best quips… well I have nothing to offer you. I could pimp your blog if you want though.
