Reason No. 17 why you need a riding mower

Because you never know when you'll need to make a beer run with a buddy.

According to authorities in Maine, a 51-year-old man from Vassalboro, apparently in need of libation, took off with a neighbor on a beer run. On his lawn mower.

The man, who had recently had his driver's license revoked, was spotted driving erratically by several eagle-eyed passers by and the authorities were duly notified.

The cops eventually caught up with the lawn mower riding duo at a local liquor store, where the neighbor was emerging with two cases of beer. (No word on which brand.) The driver of the mower was charged with "operating under the influence."

No word as to how the two got home or what happened to the two cases of beer.
