Woman causes car accident by shaving nether regions on the highway
Notably, her ex-husband was the passenger and he tried to hold the wheel while she sped down the highway. He must also have been distracted because he somehow lost his grip and a collision ensued.
This is the stuff comedy dreams are made of.
Columnist Celia Riverbank at the Star News Online has a hilarious take on the incident. Read her account here.

Local reporter says he spent time with the governator, his wife, mistress and the kids. Cozy night?
Oh no, he didn't.
The Insider never casts aspersions at fellow ink-stained wretches, but let's just say LeDuff has never met a story he thinks couldn't be improved by making himself a character in it. And that character is endlessly fascinating. To him. But if you wade through the desperate attempts at self aggrandizing, part of a fascinating story unfolds.
LeDuff says he was covering Schwarzenegger for the LA Times when he and his wife were invited to watch the Golden Globes with the famous family.
Long story short: Maria was in sweat pants, the menu was "warmed over taquitos, nachos and hot dogs," LeDuff says, and the "well endowed" reported mistress Mildred Baena sat in on the festivities from a stool perched behind the couch.
The governor, whose kingdom incidentally included San Francisco and Hollywood, allegedly mocked a starlet during the broadcast by saying of her dress, "Look at her! Some queer told her she looks good in that but her t--s look like s--t!”
There are no details of the day beyond that (read LeDuff's report here) but the Insider can't stop dreaming up captions for the imaginary Christmas card picture snapped that day.

Hackel tries to avoid Insider; Effort proves to be futile
Here's a case in point: When a Macomb Daily staffer sat down the other day for an interview with County Executive Mark Hackel, Deputy County Executive Mark Deldin and county Board of Commissioners Chair Kathy Vosburg, the location of choice was Vosburg's office in downtown Mount Clemens.
Vosburg has decorated her glass-top conference table with a number of drawings in crayon and pencil by her pre-school-age grandchildren. The drawings, tucked under the glass, were quite apparent as the interview was about to begin.
Vosburg started to explain that her young grandchildren were the artists responsible for the pictures when the reporter chimed in: "I thought you were going to say that the commissioners drew them."
Hackel couldn't suppress a chuckle and said: "I'm glad you said that, not me. If I had said that I, for sure, would have ended up in The Insider."
Mr. Executive, sometimes it's not what you say, it's what you don't say.
