Driving While Holding an iPhone-Shaped Cookie to Your Ear

(Randy Liedtke)

Randy Liedtke, the guy behind the Pace Picante hoax, has gone viral again. This time, it's because he's baked a bunch of cookies that look like iPhones so that he can get wrongly pulled over for driving while talking.

Here's Liedtke: "Baked some iPhone cookies to trick cops into pulling me over, then I just take a bite and ask if cookies are against the law." This is probably not something you ought to try at home.

Pointless. What a jerk. I hope he gets arrested for wasting the police force's time. Better yet, hope he crashes into telephone pole and smashes his thick skull open.

Kudos to Randy for showing just how stupid it is to have nanny-state laws like making it illegal to use a cellphone in a car. I'd rather be a little less "safe' and "protected", than have all kinds of laws dictating personal behaviour.

To me the guy is a jerky jack*ss. Belittling a safety law, sorry, is not just infantile. Its dangerous.

There was another story about the guy who ripped off his driver's bikini top, causing her to crash, killing him.

Its the same : don't mess with driving safety.

Don't try it in Albuquerque: the cops here will shoot you, and claim that you were brandishing a gun-shaped cookie.

Let him know that in Jersey they're already trying to ban eating while driving and we don't need any of his help convincing them it's a great idea, thankyouverymuch.

I don't think that writing about a story is the same as actually endorsing a story.

What a phenomenally d*ckish thing to do. The Pace stuff was borderline droll (though I imagine less so for the Pace social-media guys caught in Liedtke's passive-agressive "humor); but this one is just dangerous to his fellow citizens and a waste of the time of guys who risk their very lives for d*cks like Liedtke every single day. This guy must be a laff-riot with his hijinks on oncology wards. I'm sure the Gawker empire and TLDR will be right there to kiss his genius arse. Everyone is ten years-old now.

I'll take a SWAG and say police are busy enough dealing with serious issues without dealing with goofy pranks. What's next, this guy walking into a bank and carrying a cookie resembling a gun?

Wow, when you did the Pace Picante segment on him, he seemed like a sympathetic guy. Now he seems like a real asshole.

Does he (and do you) realize that people can actually cause accidents while talking on phones while driving? And does he (and do you) realize that cops who pull people over who are doing this aren't part of a prank -- they are trying to make the roads safe and doing their jobs?
