A Zebra and Parrot Walk Into A Bar

Jerald Reiter was drunk Sunday night, got into his truck after leaving a bar and was arrested for OWI.  His blood alcohol level was .14, oh yes, and he had a zebra and parrot in the front of the truck with him

Yes, Reiter and his girlfriend own both as pets and like to take them out in public for others to see and pet.  Sunday night Reiter decided to take the pair to the bar where he claims they have been allowed in before.  On this night he was told that food was being served and had to leave them in the truck.  In the parking lot others saw the animals and gathered to take pictures and gawk at the odd site.  It seems that someone from that group called police.  It was about the time they arrived that Reiter was driving off, and was arrested.

The bar told police and local media that they have never allowed the animals into the establishment.  Oh, the bar’s name?  “The Doghouse Lounge”.

I. Must. Have. Now.

An awesome listener once purchased as a gift for me a small RC helicopter, the “Blade MCX“, that I flew around my house and still to this day get hours of enjoyment from.

But after seeing this video, I think this is something I can’t hope for the generosity of another.

Ever dream of spy missions on your neighbors, a bird’s eye view of the hot co-ed’s next door in the swimming pool (no?) well check out the new A.RDrone 2.0 from Parrot.  This is the sequel to the A.RDrone, but this one features a HD video camera (running at 720p resolution) and you can record your flight videos and share them.  And yes, you control the darned thing with your smartphone (iOS and Android).

Watch the demo video.  Of course the idea of these things flying around in mass raises a lot of terrible scenarios and I am pretty sure that if I flew mine up to a little kid or pretty girl, I’d make a mistake and maul their face off with one or all four of the rotor blades…
