Comedian bakes iPhone cookies to fool cops, but you probably shouldn't
Chatting on your iPhone while behind the wheel can get you into some serious trouble (not to mention an accident, so DON'T DO IT), but comedian Randy Liedtke thinks he's found a way to have some fun with the laws against such practices. Posting on his Tumblr account, Liedtke shows off a batch of new "iPhone cookies" he prepared for the express purpose of fooling cops into thinking he's talking on his smartphone while driving.
"Baked some iPhone cookies to trick cops into pulling me over," he writes, adding "then I just take a bite and ask if cookies are against the law."
We'll chalk this one up to a comedian doing what he does best, which is making people laugh, but actually trying such a trick could still land you in hot water. There may be no laws against eating cookies, but eating while driving (which can be considered "distracted driving," depending on your state and the mood of the cop that pulls you over) could still land you with a ticket. Unless you share the cookies with the officer... I mean, who doesn't love cookies?
Update: Well... it worked. Sort of.
