Oh, Brother

Truly, Your Honour, I Wasn't Driving

Swiss officials say they are powerless to act against identical twins who have run up hundreds of parking tickets in Winterthur and blamed each other for the offences. They share the car and every time they refuse to pay the ticket by telling courts that the other sibling was driving.

Funny .. have you ever read Alexander McCall Smith's books about the lady detective in Africa? They've been made into a series on HBO and one of the crimes she solved involved identical twin dentists .. dont ask it was too silly but charming nonetheless ... Oh what has this to do with your post? Twins. Prank playing/law breaking twins.

That is wild! Guess they could charge both! Thanks for visiting my Blog!

That would be a no-brainier here. In America, whoever owned the car would be made to pay the tickets.

Looks like they are pulling the old "switcheroo." Very funny...

I never wanted a twin until just now.

What a good idea. Must tell my husband who is a twin!

Yikes! My identical twin sons will be legal to drive in 3 years! Hope they don't pull stuf like that. lol!

On a different note: It sure is odd to leave a comment on a post dated for a day that hasn't yet arrived where I live.
In the US it's still April 20. :)

Wonderful shot, David. I guess that's like the "Where are my glasses?" question when you find you're wearing them though you wre looking for them. Some things are just reflexive!
