Excuse me while Warren Zevon spins 10000RPM six feet under.
I saw a rugrat with a Chinese menu in his hand
Ridin' through the streets of Lapeer in the rain
He was lookin' for the place called Lee Ho Fooks
Gonna get a big dish of beef chow mein.
How-oooo- Rugrats of Lapeer.
This sounds too much like something out of a sitcom; maybe Stewie making a run for some Moo Shoo Pork.
By the time police arrived to pull over the six-year-old boy, two drivers of other vehicles had already boxed him into a turnaround, said Engster. One reached into the window and pulled the keys out of the ignition.
The boy had taken the keys off the counter at home and told the responding officer that he had never driven before and nobody had taught him how.
"He said he'd never even sat on his dad's lap to steer the car or anything," said Engster.
When police asked the boy why he took the car, he told them he was going to get Chinese food. He had hit a "no left turn" sign on Park and Pine streets near his home and, seeing the damage to the car, decided he needed to head to the dealer to get it repaired.
Smart kid. Not the wisest kid on the planet, but gutsy. Hat tip to Joe Carter for scooping me in my own back-yard.
