Driver With Gun: Feast on This Grey Poupon!

Greypoupon This may be our favorite story of the year so far. On June 18, somewhere in Utah, one motorist (and apparent fan of classic TV ads) got another to roll down his window, then asked him, “Excuse me, sir, do you have any Grey Poupon?” According to local press reports, “after hearing the request for Dijon mustard, the 22-year-old driver pulled a black handgun from his glove compartment, cocked the weapon and pointed it at the three people in the other car. ‘Here’s your Grey Poupon, roll your [expletive] windows up,’ he responded.” The first driver, who admittedly was asking for it, did as he was told, but also got the license plate of the other guy, who was charged this week with aggravated assault, a third-degree felony. Seems that old tagline hasn’t aged well after all.
