To which I shouted back, "Oh, yeah, bitch? Let's see you try that s--t behind the wheel of a Kia!" OK, I can't back that up.

I fully recognize that my upbringing was too solidly middle-middle class to engage in any really heavy-duty class warfare, and besides, anyone who would make a high-speed left-hander through an intersection, come within a couple feet of running over a pedestrian legally crossing the street, and then honk at said pedestrian despite the fact that said pedestrian has the right-of-way is already an asshat without bringing any other considerations into it. And yet, when said asshat motorist is driving a Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG (MSRP: $81,520), it's really hard not to interpret that honk as, "Excuse me, peasant, but can't you see what I'm driving here? Get out of my way and be glad I was nice enough not to avail myself of my right to punish your lese majeste with a vehicular homicide!"

Anyway, yeah, I flipped the mofo off. Which I'm not the least bit proud of. But at least I'll have something to confess at my church's Lenten penance service next week, and hey, what's better than a meaningful confession? Yeah, I know!

Ok, I have to congratulate you on the best blog name I've ever heard. It's right up my fantasy sports teamname alley - take an exceedingly random film quote that few people will recognize despite everybody having seen the movie. Of course, I would be disappointed if you ever mentioned the film's title, the speaker, or the scene.

That said, my long-in-the-works blog is about to make its debut. I would give you a link, but now I have to come up with a better name, dammit.

hey Josh, don't you think we know how to Google? Finds all that info on the movie title, speaker, etc. on the first screen! Thus we can get down to more serious stuff with Doug, like the GOP/homo rant, or the SSA and tort reform stuff others want to address!

Ugh, Anonymous - if that is your real name - let's please keep the political taunts (from both sides of the aisle) to a minimum. Plus, yeah, I'd never heard of Google. Thanks for the tip.

duh -I forgot- Doug is forgoing the political, and sticking to fluff. Sorry to have disturbed you, Josh
