Couch Potatoes Travel in Style
A fan of the Cleveland Browns American football team is in legal trouble, after he took his couch out for a spin.
Mike Meredith has a motorised sofa - the 'Go-Kouch' - that he usually rides around a municipal parking lot for tailgate parties before games.
But on Nov. 23, he decided to take the couch (which is actually a converted riding mower) the extra two blocks to the Browns' stadium for a game with Houston.
Meredith told The Plain Dealer newspaper that several police officers happily waved him through. However, one didn't see the funny side of it, and issued him a citation for driving an unregistered vehicle and having expired plates.
