Police missing ``beer goggles''

BUFFALO GROVE, Ill. - Police in the Chicago suburb of Buffalo Grove are asking for the public's help in returning a $150 pair of special goggles that are used to simulate the effects of intoxication. Officers say the goggles disappeared this week from a table at a National Night Out event at a local park. Officer Hector De La Paz says police believe the goggles were taken by accident. Sometimes called "beer goggles," the special glasses are used by police to demonstrate to high school students and parents how alcohol impairs a driver's vision and judgment. They look like safety glasses.

Obviously, I don't make this stuff up. But someone very smart at one point decided it was a good idea to create beer goggles. I can probably be assured that the person who invented this was butt ugly.

And why are they letting high school kids wear the "beer goggles"? Teen pregnancy will probably sky rocket.
