…The Muppets are terrible drivers?

Muppet Speed Camera

In Germany, speed cameras are set up to capture both the license plate of the car in question as well as the drivers face, while blurring the identity of the passengers for privacy purposes, because “The number plate is not enough. We need clear evidence of who is driving the vehicle too.”

Apparently one British driver (whose driver’s seat is conveniently on the opposite side of his German counterparts) has discovered this system, and is taking full advantage of it by placing a stuffed Muppet in the driver’s/passenger’s seat as he flies by the cameras.

So far he’s got the authorities fooled, but as soon as they can figure out which Muppet is going along for the ride, they intend to fully interrogate him until he reveals the identity of the clever co-driver.

…Grand Theft Auto is special?

Grand Theft Auto

Usually around the third or fourth iteration of a popular game, the designers decide that there are enough fans to warrant a special collector’s edition.

Though collector’s editions usually filled with a bunch of stuff that no one needs, they’re gobbled up by hard-core fans that want to raise their 1337 level by a few points at the next gaming get-together.

Apparently Grand Theft Auto has reached that point, because with the release of GTAIV coming up, they’ve announced a pre-orderable special edition that comes with a metal safety deposit box, special packaging, an art book with never-before-seen production artwork, a soundtrack CD filled with exclusive material, a Rockstar keychain, and a duffel bag to hold it all. Plus, order through Amazon, and you’ll even get a Liberty City license plate to round out the collection!
