A new candidate has emerged for China’s most foolish man. That seems to be the verdict of the Shandong Business Daily, which reports on the case of a citizen of Dezhou who has been trying the patience of traffic police. The unnamed man was out drinking with his buddies when he spotted the cops administering drink-driving tests earlier this month. He walked over to the local constabulary, stating: “I am drunk. Let me blow the tester!” The traffic police asked him if he was driving a car, since it was only then that they could test him. The citizen said no, but said he was curious to know exactly how drunk he was. So the idiot then retrieved his car and drove back to the spot where the checks were being made. “Now can I blow the tester?” he asked. He was duly declared to be driving under the influence, fined Rmb2,000 and lost his licence.
