11. That reminds me of a problem they had in Ireland
A scofflaw named "Prawo Jazdy" racked up over 50 different driving infractions during the past few years, each time giving a different address to evade police. Thanks to Google, Ireland's police have finally wised up.

Ireland's most dastardly of drivers is a man known only as "Prawo Jazdy." Mr. Jazdy's wanted for countless driving infractions across the Irish countryside. You'd think someone would be able to catch him, right? Wrong. Each time Mr. Prawo Jazdy was pulled over he not only gave police a different address, he gave them a different alias.

Eventually a call was put out to find and arrest the country's most reckless driver using each and every one of his supposed 50 aliases. A wise office worker for one of the Irish police precincts noticed something a little unusual about his name and did a quick little Google search to confirm her suspicions and low and behold, she was right.

You see, Prawo Jazdy was not the man-in-question's name. In fact, it wasn't the name of a man at all. Instead their the words emblazoned atop the scofflaws' ID. Yup, it was Polish for "Driver's License." All along, Irish police who thought this reckless driver was constantly outwitting them with a new alias, were really the ones out-witting themselves.
