With the holiday and party season approaching, take this bit of news as a cautionary tale, and a good reason NOT to motorize your furniture — this week a Minnesota man pleaded guilty to driving his motorized La-Z-Boy chair while drunk.

The chair was motorized with a converted lawnmower and also sported a stereo. The man drove the chair into a parked car but was not seriously injured. Our view of the La-Z-Boys will never be the same.

Read more about drunk La-Z-boy driving in this NPR story "Man pleads guilty to DWI in motorized La-Z-Boy."
