Life Imitates Family Circus

| No Comments

The Family Circus comic strip occasionally featured the universal fall guy "Not Me!", whom the kids (especially Billy) blamed from everything from a broken lamp to mud tracked into the house.

Well, it looks like he's at it again:

The mystery deepened Monday in the case of the puzzling crash last week of a $1-million Ferrari Enzo on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu.

. . .

Detectives have been trying for nearly a week to sort out what exactly happened last Tuesday morning when [Swedish game machine entrepreneur Stefan] Eriksson's Enzo — one of only 400 ever made — smashed into a telephone pole, totaling the car. Eriksson told deputies that he was the passenger and that a man he knew only as "Dietrich" was behind the wheel. But detectives have been openly skeptical of the story, noting that Eriksson had a bloody lip and that the only blood they found in the car was on the driver's-side air bag. [emphasis added]

So now it can be told - Not Me's real name is Dietrich!
