Amusing Local News

“A woman ate a “baba,” a typical Neapolitan sponge cake soaked in rum syrup, at a baptism party in Caserta. When the party was over, she rode a bicycle home. In a town where people often drive fast, city cops chose instead to stop the woman who was riding the bicycle.  She was tested for blood alcohol content and tested positive, resulting in a reading of .09 percent, a little bit higher than Italy’s maximum legal limit of .05 percent. In accordance with new rules of the road, her driving license was suspended.”

Taken from: “Bicyclist arrested for driving under the influence of ‘baba’.”  “Panorama” newspaper, 56th year, No. 38. Friday October 7, 2011.
