Telephone records are subject to subpoena, if need be. Wonderful things, telephone records and subpoenies.

I was rearended yesterday by a Cell Phone Idiot who claimed “the sun got in his eyes” and he didn’t see the line of cars stopped for a left turn. I would swear that he was quickly erasing his “Recent Calls” list before the police showed up.

It’s supposed to be 88mph. Not 80, not 38.4. In the words of the immortal Biff; “Hellllo McFly!”

Why is there a swimming pool under the car?

Hmm… he must not like attending weddings.

No Lamar it’s 1.21 Jiggawatts, not 64 Kilowatts! And really, why would you want to time travel in a taxi anyway?

If someone steals it they can claim insurance, insisting that the car was in perfect working condition.

They can also put crash test dummies into slinky silver suits and drape them over the car, in place of using actual human beings.

Sneaky. Cheap, but sneaky.

In this tight economy, some banquet halls are closing. To fill the gap, funeral homes are now renting out space for weddings, proms and parties. I guess the death panel isn’t working up to snuff or the funeral homes wouldn’t have the free time. Anyhow, if the proms are going to be held at a funeral home, will the kids want to go in a hearse instead of a limo? Lamar could get a job as a driver if proms do take a turn for the hearse.
