Jim & Jenny Order Up Smashed Scooter Surprise
Jim Carrey told Access Hollywood this week that he and Jenny McCarthy aren’t headed down the aisle anytime soon. Or ever, really, saying: “No, we’re never getting married, but we’re never getting divorced, which is fantastic.” But that doesn’t stop them from making out in public. Actually, it probably encourages it.
The couple was seen hanging out here in Miami at Prime 112 this weekend, apparently very googly-eyed. When they left the restaurant they found that their scooter had been damaged…and no one left a note.
Incidentally, scooters are the preferred mode of transportation on Miami Beach, with rental places on each block. They don’t run cheap: $20/hour, $80/day…but they are much cooler looking and easier to park.
Scooters are super fuel-efficient, but unfortunately they are not necessarily good for the environment. It really defies logic, but many scooters have much higher emissions than SUVs. The two-stroke engines are worse than the four-stroke, but really the ideal solution is to use one of the new biodiesel, solar, or electric scooters that are becoming available.
How did this happen? The EPA has emissions standards that get significantly less strict for vehicles under 50cc – aka mopeds. Scooters are basically outside the law, and therefore the manufacturers really just don’t care.
So, just a word to the wise for Jim, Jenny and the rest of us: don’t assume smaller means greener!
