A MAN caught driving while using two mobile phones has told police it was ok because he had one finger on the wheel at all times.

What a hoon!

One-Fingered Hoon would be an excellent pirate name.

What they didn't mention was that his steering wheel is only 1" in diameter.

Are we sure that was his finger???

What's a hoon? And would a scofflaw scientist be a hoon boffin?

Hoon is a derogatory term used in Australia and New Zealand to refer to a younger person who engages in loutish, anti-social behaviour.

What an assbo!

Inquiring minds want to know: Which finger?

...Probably the same sort of finger he was getting from other motorists, now that I think about it. Never mind...

so, hoon is sorta like yob. but they all equal a$$hat. chapeaux de derriere.
one day when i was waitng for my bus to work, a hoon was stopped at the traffic light... on phone with one hand, and shaving with the other. i dont want to guess what he might have been steering with.

a-HOOOOOON! Werewolves of London . . .

One finger control is not as safe as knee steering.

Fool. Everybody knows you don't get cell signal in a tunnel.

If he used that one finger to flip somebody off then what was he going to steer with. Can men even steer a car with that? Just curious.

He must have those FBI phones that Mulder and Sculley used to have. You know, the ones that work in elevators deep inside federal buildings, in airplanes, deep in high mountains, etc.
Obviously, they worked in tunnels.
Mine frequently won't work in my den.
I want one of those good phones for Christmas.

When I lived in a city that had tunnels, the only time the carpool group would look up from their crackberries and converse is when they lost signal underground.

We called it the carpool tunnel syndrome.
