. . . and the silly things that grown men sometimes do that probably shouldn't cause that lather:
The latest in ride-sharing, motorized picnic tables, unamusing to Australian cops

The Oz tradition of innovation is still alive and well at least in West Australia........
I was beginning to think we had lost our tradition of irreverence and innovation.

We have motorised garden sheds and sofas. They even have number plates and Mots.

If my memory is correct, the UK is also the home of lawn mower racing especially of the Atco reel mower type.

Nobody has mentioned the esky. Motorised esky riding has gained in popularity too.
A bit dopey that the cops carry on like these chaps were slaughtering virgins in public but that is very typical of the Aussie cop mentality and something I think does the police zero favours in the popularity stakes.
I don't have this problem in my town. If I want to ride a motorised esky around and around the streets here nobody would give a toss and the police would be very hard pushed to drive the 248 kilometre round trip, some of it over vicious dirt roads to get me and by the time they got here there would be no evidence anyway.
These chaps should have had a table cloth though and one of those jewish candle thingys lit would have been another fine touch.

The table cloth would have been a nice touch, but a menorah? Why on earth a menorah?
A regular candelabrum or several candlesticks would be tasteful, though.

No helmets? Wouldn't these be classed as open top cars since they have 4 wheels?

Lawn mowing racing and piglet racing are considered as a good day out in Dorset. Then off to the beer tent followed by ploughing competition. One meeting a women complained that racing pigs was disrespectful to the pigs. The pigs seem to like it.
We call reel mowers cylinder mowers. Our local bowling green has a very Acto ride on cylinder mower 3 ft blade with heavy roller towed behind, Briggs engine. Green and red of course.
Mower racing is a good way into motor sport. It don't get any cheaper. Think of it as tall go carts. There ate different classes. The grass cutting bits are removed for safety and its pure speed and handling that wins the race. IT's like other motor sports. During the week make improvements to the machine and try them racing at the weekend.
Is it hard to eat spaghetti and meat balls whilst going down the road on a motorised table.
Ed China is one of the chaps responsible for motorised stuff that isn't meant to be a vehicle.
