You've heard of bumper cars, bumper shoots _ but bumper tables? That's what owners of an Ocean City, Maryland restaurant are calling the inflatable inner tubes being used to help diners practice social distancing. Customers at Fish Tales say the devices were created to let people keep a medically safe distance while eating outdoors.

The owner of Fish Tales says he has already begun using them _ and plans to get another 40 _ so customers can dine while keeping their distance from others.
