Only from Queens

Stop me if you've heard this one. According to the NY Daily News, a retired New York couple took a 2,500 mile cab ride from their home in Queens, NY, across the country, to Sedona, Arizona.

Why? Well, not only do they both not know how to drive, it seems they were concerned that their two cats ("Cleo" and "Pretty Face," if you must know) wouldn't survive the trip in the cargo hold of an airplane. So they hailed a taxi, hopped in the back, and away they went. Total cost...a cool $3,000 (plus cat food).

Ironically, it turns out that Pretty Face does in fact have a valid driver's license, but due to a number of outstanding parking tickets, was unable to rent a vehicle.
