A shave and a haircut does not a new man make…

A recent traffic stop prompted an unusual tactic by the vehicles owner:

Police said a Somerset County man fled a traffic stop, went home, shaved his mustache and changed his clothes, and reported the truck he was driving as stolen. – [Yahoo/AP]

Huh. So this dude flees a traffic stop for a simple faulty equipment violation, and tries to pull a Dana Carvey “Master of Disguise!” routine on the authorities. I’m sorry dude. Don’t quit your day job. Honestly, you ought to have a plastic surgeon on retainer for that kind of thing. Really.

Actually a better way to deal with situations like these is to lead police on a high speed chase that ends with you driving off a pier into some frigid water. That way nobody gets to see your face, and you could swim away from your sinking vehicle, take off your clothes, climb up on the beach and act like your sunbathing. Nobody would notice. Seriously.

Worst case scenario, you get trapped in your car and drown. But that way your are guaranteed not to get a ticket…

Hmmmm. Something’s different about you – [Yahoo/AP]
