You think that’s bad…
A few weeks ago some engineering school pranksters hung the shell of a Volkswagen beetle off the Golden Gate bridge. When I say “shell” I mean it was the outer body alone, no wheels, seats, engine or undercarriage. Some officer interviewed on a local station said quite earnestly:
“Well, at this point we suspect it was delivered to the bridge by another vehicle --possibly a flatbed truck, rather than under it’s own power. But we’re not ruling anything out yet.”
In his defense I suppose he might have envisioned the empty shell full of folks in roller-skates like something from the Bay to Breakers race.
