Drunk driving nun
What is it about nuns committing crimes of concupisence that gives us such a naughty thrill? The seriousness of drunk driving notwithstanding, and assuming no one got hurt, I find this story quite gratifying. Maybe it's got something to do with the archetypal image of the mischievous but righteous nuns in The Sound of Music, or maybe something to do with the ancient idea of eutrapelia.
