See, now this I don't get

I saw this on Deadspin and wondered what's the point in making a motorized cooler if you can't drive it when you're drunk?
A Whitehall man learned that on Memorial Day, when he was charged with driving while intoxicated after police pulled him over for swerving and driving on the sidewalk on a four-wheeled, motorized cooler known as a "Cruzin Cooler."

Leslie J. "Bomber" Marr, 57, could face felony DWI and aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle charges because of prior arrests and convictions in drinking-and-driving cases, said Whitehall Police Chief Richard LaChapelle.

The electricity-powered Cruzin Cooler that Marr was riding contained 14 beers, the chief said.

Hmm, multiple DWIs? I have a guess about how he earned the nickname "Bomber." I, for one, applaud the man's ingenuity in making sure he didn't get behind the wheel of a car again. So, his cooler was weaving a little bit in the sidewalk, big deal! Besides, he still had 14 beers left!

Here is the official site where you can buy your own Cruzin Cooler and even a cooler wagon to pull behind because everyone knows 24 beers on ice won't be enough. I can't even imagine how popular you would be if you bought a few extra beers and drove around a tailgate handing them out to people.

Hey, as Director of National Accounts for Cruzin Cooler, LLC the first question I'm usually asked at trade shows and other events is "can I get a DUI on it?" I always answer "yes", but after talking with police officers all over the country, I generally also add that most cops would prefer you drunk on the sidewalk on a cooler to drunk on the road in a 4000 lb. car.

"Bomber" seems to have a rep with the local consables, and has probably been warned to stay off the roads when drunk, period. It's one of the duties of a police officer to protect the public, even from themselves.

The big "however" is that our product is fun, well made, and the greatest thing to hit tailgating since the tailgate.

Awesome, Cruzin Cooler is commenting on my blog. I love your product, now what's Tipsy McStagger like in person?

But, yeah, obviously driving around drunk on these things is probably a bad idea so don't go getting crazy, you kids.
