We can’t resist offering up this joke: A Corvette walks into a bar and says, “Gimme a quart of oil and 10 gallons of premium!”
OK. We know it wasn’t the funniest joke in the world – we’re dying up here, folks – but we’re sure the owner of the High Waters Sports Bar and Grill in Surf City, North Carolina wasn’t in a laughing mood, either, after a black C6 coupe ran into the side of his business late Sunday.
Surf City Police Chief Ron Shanahan delivered the punch line to the joke, reporting that a 54-year-old man, Timothy Almond of Gastonia, was charged with driving while intoxicated and reckless driving.
Almond was transported to New Hanover Regional Medical Center, where there was no word on how seriously he was injured.
The crash, which occurred around 11:40 p.m. Sunday, caused an estimated $40,000 worth of damage to the bar, located on North New River Drive.
Nevertheless, it’s still open for business – though they’d obviously prefer that their customers walk through the front door and not make their own drive-thru!
