If you're going to put something in your car's passenger seat so you can illegally drive in the carpool lane, it might as well be something interesting.

A Washington state trooper pulled over a guy in the carpool lane earlier this week for using a cardboard cutout to make it look like he was riding with a passenger. The cutout was of "The Most Interesting Man in the World" -- you know, the guy from those Dos Equis commercials.

And while the trooper gave him props for being creative, and they both had a good laugh over it, he still gave the guy a traffic ticket. Because people don't always use the carpool lane, but when they do, the law prefers 'dos' passengers.
