back to article Florida woman prangs car while shaving her privates

A Florida Highway Patrol officer has admitted his incredulity at a woman who pranged her car while shaving her privates. Megan Mariah Barnes, 37, was driving her Thunderbird in Key West last week when she piled into the back of a Chevrolet pickup carrying four people.

      Playmobil FTW!

      This should rival the Swedish Dykes Rompy Pompy!

    So, her ex-hubby was helping her drive to a date with her boyfriend whilst she shaved her muff to be ready for, well, something?

    Jeesh! Talk about an open relationship.

    Paris, 'cos she knows about muff driving.

      How could the cop be sure which end she was shaving?

        I asked myself the same thing

        PLEASE tell me she was horribly mutilated in that crash and she didn't look like that normally....

      facial beauty was not a big priority here...

    Let me get this straight ...

    ... this woman was trimming her pubes on her way to a date with her boyfriend whilst in a car *next to her ex-husband* ... If this is true, I salute the open-mindedness of both gentlemen in question!!!

    Well, thunderbirds are GO, (s)natch.

    At least she was in the front of a Thunderbird, not in the back of a Trans-Am*

    Seems she had a brush with the law.

    Hair today, gone tomorrow.

    Presumably when she gets to court she'll get a hefty fine.

    She will most likley need time to pay and supporters will organise a hedge fund.

    Let's just hope...

    ...she had designed a nice exclamation mark style for her accident.

    Remember - Think once, think twice, think "no pubic topiary maintenance when driving".

    Would that make her...

    No doubt

    ...she'll now sue the razor manufacturer for not including a warning about pube-clearing while driving.

    And she'll probably win.

    "Swapping places with Judy didn't fool cops, though, because the airbag in the driver’s seat had not deployed and he had "burns from the passenger side airbag that proved he had not been in the driver’s seat"."

    Not to mention the pile of pubes on the drivers seat?

    I find it a bit strange tho, how on earth do the police *know* this? She drove on after the accident, swapped seats with husband and then were caught by police. I'm assuming she wasn't trimming throughout, so I can only conclude she fessed up!

    Stop the presses. they've inadvertently printed a photo of her under carriage.

    I can now understand why the yanks think they can rule the world. They obviously have at least two very, very brave (or visually impaired) blokes.

    Perhaps she should have started with her top lip.

    Drink icon, because I need one after seeing that mug shot and involuntarily visualizing the scene in that car....

    Oh dear

    I'm brain damaged now. The text next to the mugshot came across as "1 felony c*nt(s)" and "1 misdemeanor c*nt(s)" - nothing for it but a thorough rinse with alcohol and hope for the best.

    I've been to Florida. I'm not surprised by the woman.

    I'm just shocked a Florida policeman was measuring distance in kilometres.

    Fortunate air bag failure.

    If the drivers side airbag had deployed there would have been a follow on story from a Florida hospital emergency room.

    Doctor: do you hear something buzzing ... and why is this unconscious woman smiling?

    But joking aside it's all fun and games till the person in the other car ends up in a wheel chair as a result of her little mishap.

    Having seen the photos a little tidy up in the nether regions looks the least of her concerns.

    Mind you definite potential for "10 years younger."
