In what is a very slow news day we have this gem of a story: The Memphis Police Department pulled over a Ford pickup truck with the words “Meth Lab” written on the rear window for driving with antique license plates. I do not think Walter White would approve.
Fun fact of the day: There is such a thing as antique license plates! But really, unbeknownst to me, these license plates do exist and allow you to drive on weekends and special occasions (no word on what constitutes a special occasion, but it turns out making meth is not one).
I digress. Upon making the stop the officer discovered that the 43-year-old driver had his license suspended and was on probation for manufacturing meth. If you are on probation for manufacturing meth, it is probably not a very good idea to write “Meth Lab” on the back of your old pickup truck. After further investigation, the police found two “Shake N Bake” bottles which are commonly used in mobile meth labs.
If you are not hip to the meth trade, the “Shake N Bake” method of cooking meth is an extremely cheap and dangerous way to make the drug that has been picking up steam in poor areas throughout the United States. So there you have it America—keep the bumper stickers to promoting causes that no one gives a shit about.
