Survival of the Fittest

What is the most ridiculous and unreasonable reason to be pulled over? Driving too slow? Going 5 mph over? How about your music being too loud? It happened to me. Today.
When I was at Georgia Southern there was a rumor that there was a noise enforcement law. At the time, myself and every one of my friends had magnificent woofers in our vehicles. This law was hilarious. It was NEVER enforced. I knew some people who knew some people who were pulled over for listening to their music too loud, but I also heard that Mikey from the Life commercials died when his stomach exploded from eating Pop Rocks and chugging Coca Cola. Anyone know what Nashville is known as???



So I pull out of the parking lot, take a left, and another immediate left onto Broadway

I pull behind a cop and wait for the "left turn" arrow to go left again. I was playing some Mobb Deep
You get a prize if you guess what song.
The cop takes the left and pulls into a parking spot. I move by him, the lights come on, and he jumps behind me. Fuck.
I had had 2 beers and one cocktail. For all I know that was over the limit...but this was Tennessee after all. I give him my i.d. and insurance and this redneck tells me that he couldn't hear his radio because my music was too loud. I have some nice subs, but I turned them way down behind the good ol' boys. My fear wanes and he simply comes back and gives me a noise violation. $68. I wonder if he'll write a ticket for the Kenny Chestnutz concert. Fucking rookie pussy fart. Like you don't blast LeAnn Rhymes in your F-150.

I did see some bad ass kids jamming on a ukalaylie, banjo, and fiddle (top of post). Closed my eyes and thought that kid was Doc Watson. Downtown Nashville is actually pretty exciting. Don't mind the rootersPosted by Hello

Ali actually got a ticket for listening to his music too loud when we were in high school. We were laughing at the cop when we pulled us over.
