“Celebrity DUI”

Celebrity DUI – Who gives a shit about Cake Boss?

Oooh. This “news” story is truly annoying. Mostly because it received “mass coverage.” Cake Boss Buddy Valastro got arrested for having a few drinks. Those evil soul-sucking dregs of society over at “TMZ” scooped what was equivalent to Kim Kardashian’s fat ass. None of which should concern anyone. Ever.

But everyone loves opining about “Celebrity DUI.” Why exactly?

Cake Boss Celebrity DUI who cares

More interesting than a Cake Boss DUI arrest

You see – this can be looked at from two (equally thought-provoking) angles.

  1. Sure, this “DUI” got mainstream coverage. But according to “official” statistics – it’s estimated that over 300,000 people “drive drunk” every single DAY in America. Only around 4,000 are arrested (1.2 million per year). So that means, on average – 6,000 people in every state break this so-called “law” daily. Those are the things that you should talk about at the water cooler – not WHO. You don’t even know Buddy. He’s not your brother, father or husband, so you should treat it like every other arrest: “Did it affect me? No? Cool, I don’t really care then.”
  2. Also worthy of discussion is the whole “DUI” law itself. As you can see from the stats above, a small percentage of drunk drivers are arrested and taken off the road for the night each day. The “law” is clearly not effective whatsoever at making the roads “safer.” They just get people criminal records and revenue for the states.

Another point is that these people are arrested, even though they had not caused any harm or injuries to anyone. Who decreed that .08 was the right level? I know some people that can perfectly juggle fire bombs at BAC of 0.15 and others who I would never get in the car with if their BAC was 0.0001. Each individual has their own level of competence and tolerance for alcohol. This “prevention” and awareness of driving under the influence ONLY ENRICHES THE STATES.

With the exception of completely blitzed drivers who black out, drunk drivers might even be a bit MORE careful driving than texting teenagers.

There’s my 2 cents. Thanks, Buddy. Now bake a cake that looks like a Breathalyzer.

There is an old saying that you simply cannot polish a turd. No matter how hard you try Joey, but I am sure someone will give you credit for trying at your wake.

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
