A woman in Hohhot, the capital of north China’s Inner Mongolia region, crashed her car while giving her dog a driving lesson, the official Xinhua News Agency reported Monday.
No injuries were reported although the vehicles involved were slightly damaged, Xinhua said.
The woman, identified only by her surname, Li, said her dog “was fond of crouching on the steering wheel and often watched her drive.”
“She thought she would let the dog ‘have a try’ while she operated the accelerator and brake,” the report said. “They did not make it far before crashing into an oncoming car.”
I guess Western women don’t have a complete monopoly on stupidity and irresponsibility after all.

Naw, Chinese women can be really out there sometimes. The philosophy is dead in the country, long live capitalism and its moronic after-effects.

C’mon guys, if a man had done this we would call it a crazy jackass stunt. We always complain that women are so boring and have no sense of humor, well this one does: she let’s her dog drive!

As if women are the only people who do dumb things.
LAKSEVAG, Norway, Aug. 8 (UPI) — A Norwegian man had his license revoked after police finally stopped his swerving car and learned he was having sex while driving.
Police in Laksevag, near Bergen, received a call early Monday about a suspicious vehicle swerving and driving at irregular speeds, Aftenposten reported.
The driver ignored flashing lights and sirens as police pursued him through town and officers observed “a fair amount of activity in the car,” Police Lt. Tore Salvesen told the Bergens Tidende newspaper.
When the vehicle finally pulled over, officers said both front seats were laid flat and the driver admitted he and his female companion were “unable to contain their lust.”
Apart from the instant license suspension, the driver will face several other charges, the report said.

Mouse is obviously a feminist. I don’t think Duncan ever said that men never do anything stupid. This is the double standard many men are sick of. We’re tired of being portrayed as jackasses on every piece of media. Just because one guy thinks with his penis head doesn’t mean the rest think with the one screwed in their necks. If that headline was made in the West, it would be lucky to get past local news.

Notice that Mouse’s example involves both a man and a woman. Yet only the man is assumed to have responsibility for what happened.
I once had a girlfriend who loved sex and driving her home one night she insisted on giving me a BJ whilst driving because she liked being a bit wild and wanton. Had I have got stopped by the cops I would have been the one found guilty.
Better try next time Moose, SORRY Mouse.
