Best. Excuse. Ever.

BBC NEWS | World | Americas | ‘Goat-free roads made me speed’

A Swiss man caught speeding on a Canadian highway has blamed his actions on the absence of goats on the roads.

Well, of course. As excuses go, that’s hard to beat. But the best bit of the story has to be the comment from a Canadian police spokesman

Nobody’s ever used the lack of goats here as an excuse for speeding

Really? Maybe more people should try it?
