Convertibles are for wimps.

Motorised picnic tables fail to impress Western Australian police

Quote:
Parking spots and picnic tables are both at a premium at Australian public beaches in summer. A group of people in Perth, Western Australia, have come up with an innovative solution to both problems: motorised picnic tables.

In images captured on CCTV and released by WA police, a group of nine young men can be seen casually sitting at two picnic tables benches attached while the tables trundle down the main thoroughfare.
I so want one!

Some idiots thought the picnic bench was better off in the river. Since it was already there, we decided to utilize it.
