LAD Drives Drinkers Around Steam Fair On Motor Powered Pub Bench
Yes, you heard.
Have a look at it in action. Pretty impressive stuff, right?
He and his mates are regulars at the Great Dorset Steam Fair, which is something of a haven for those who create wacky things such as this.
Having brought a completely stationary pub bench last year, Clayton decided to ramp things up a notch by combining it with a ride-on lawnmower and attaching some snazzy cider-themed registration plates.
Well, this is the West Country, after all.
Speaking to LADbible, Clayton said: "We always go to Dorset Steam Fair, my old man's got a steam engine and there's always weird and wonderful things driving around there.
"People modify mobility scooters, lawnmowers, anything that moves.
"This year we thought we needed something that moves, so I bought a ride-on lawnmower, took the bench, and converted it and that's what we've got.
"No real reason, it's just I'm a mechanic and an engineer, and I've seen a few of them."

Well, someone needed to do it.
He continued: "What made me do it was that I saw two people who got caught and lost their driving licence driving one of them along the road in America.
"That was based on a go-kart so it was quite low down and less usable than what I'd want."
I know what you're thinking - how fast can it go?
Well, not actually that quick. Still a damn sight quicker than most other pub furniture you'll have seen.
Clayton added: "It's a bit faster than walking speed. It is literally a ride-on lawnmower, so probably about 10 miles per hour at the most.
"It's just a bit of a laugh, really."
It turns out that everyone else feels the same way. It went down a storm at the Steam Fair, and even had security guards gathering around to take photographs with it.
So, what next for the petrol-powered pub bench?
"Well, I'll probably hang onto it and use it a bit more, it's just you've got to find the right places to use it because it's not allowed on the road," Clayton explains.
"It's just big events like that one that will accept it."
If more events had motor-powered drinking spots, the world would be a better place...
