Spit Or Swallow?

OK, you get your "Friday WTF?" story early (mostly because I'm going to be unconnected to the 'net tomorrow).

Here's a doozy. A guy in Poland gets pulled over for DUI, reeking of vodka. What is his defense?

A Polish former MP has escaped a drink driving ban after telling cops he had only been using vodka as mouth wash.

Grzegorz Gruszka was arrested after being pulled over by police in a routine check and failing a breath test.

He was acquitted after he told prosecutors he had not actually swallowed any alcohol, and had only rinsed his mouth with "jogobelka" - a popular local mixture of vodka and mustard.

Call me cynical but I think the fact that he was an ex-member of Parliament might have had a little something to do with this. But still, is this a Polish politician's version of "I didn't inhale"?

1 I didn't know the Kennedy family had a branch in Poland. Learn something every day.

2 A mixture of vodka and mustard?! If a fun time with that doesn't have you kneeling before the porcelain throne, nothing will.
