WHY SOUTH FLORIDA IS NOT LIKE WHERE YOU LIVE

A whole new concept in mass transit.

Do they take Metrocards?

What did they expect? It's a Peterbilt.

Bunny Ranch, Cadillac Ranch - not too much of a stretch. The upside is I'd finally be able to ride in the HOV lane.

Simul with MKJ. And not on the geezer bus. Away with ye, ya knicker-raffler.

Martini - better than the HIV lane.

*Quietly pulls MartiniShark aside to explain about additional upsides*

The loooove bus...soon will be making another run...

When's the police auction there? I may need to make a purchase.
And buy a steam-cleaner while I'm at it.

Cops have charged Morteh with [...] operating a business without license.

To be fair, if she had applied, would they have given her one?

With the price of gas, they probably had a hard time making ends meet.

Not gonna say anything about the organized religions running transportation companies. Not gonna say anything about tithing and the obvious "G"-string noted in the report. Those parishioners were only praying, officer. Not gonna go there. Nope, not me.

Where can I get me one of those?

KOW - They might have granted a license. You might be amazed at what is illegal in under one law, yet not mentioned in another. We once had a claim for Social Security retirement from a madam. She had paid her taxes on the profits, and was entitled to it.

There is probably a conversation at more than one truck manufacturer on where the tractor came from and how more can be sold for the same purpose.

"..and offered oral *** for just $100, according to the report and a detective's testimony in court."

"just $100"? Wow! How much is the market rate?

I think they were just doing their civic duty by encouraging carpools.

Braniff, I figure my ex got about $50K a pop.

Snork @Annie

What's that meainie? . . . uh-huh . . . I see . . .OHHHH! Now I get it. But wait, wouldn't that be a moving violation?

``It was on their G-strings. In 19 years, I've never seen this.''

get out much?

If you're doing it right, yes.

"In 19 years, I've never seen this.''

"Now 20 years ago, this stuff was all over the place!"

I'm just wondering what song this Good Humor wagon would be playing as it comes (har) down the street?

not sure, fivver, but the creamsicles are really expensive.

fivver, how about "I'm in the Nude for Love"?

Or, "The Girls on the Bus Go Up and Down"

Yes, South Florida is definitely not like where I live.

So did the bus work on a first served, first come basis?

Love Bus & Rolling Prostitution WBAGBF fun!

also AGNF

wasnt that an episode of csi???

HAR!

Y'all are in FINE form today!

now ... dang, I hate to mention this, and it's NOT a criticism per se, Annie ... but that vehicle in the photo is not a "Pete" ... tho your line wuz a VERY funny one ...

It's what's known in the trade by the nickname of 'Binder ... which doesn't offer much in the way of opportunity for one-liners ...

Or does it?

At any rate, the 'Binder is more ... um ... "stream"lined than a Pete is ...

whutever ...

(I'm still giggling @ some of these lines ... )

JayP, it sounded like a pay as you go and the crabs are free deal.

See, now I have the "Get on the Bus" song from the Doodlebops in my head, and I really don't want to think of DeeDee like that.

"Love Bus & Rolling Prostitution" - sounds more like a concert tour, with Rolling Prostitution opening for Love Bus. (sic)

OtU - I thought I'd be the only one here who knew the term "Binder". I have operated some of their off-road hardware.

Love Bus yeah yeah

ridin' on the love getaway
Ridin' on the love getaway, (love getaway)
I got me a bus, it's loaded with tail
and we're gettin' on down
In the Love Bus
I got me a Greyhound, it seats about 20
So hurry up and bring your lap dance money

Well the Love Bus is a mobile place
where we can get together
Love Bus baby, Love Bus bay-bee.
Love Bus, baby Love Bus!
Love Bus, baby Love Bus!
Love Bus, baby Love Bus!
Love baby, that's where it's at,
Love Bus, baby Love Bus!
Ooo love baby, that's where it's at

Sign says..(Woo...) stay away fools,
'cause sex rules on the Lo-o-ove Bus!
Well it's travelin' down Collin's Avenue,
Just a funky old bus and I gotta get some

Glitter on the bench seats
Glitter on the highway
Glitter on the dashboard
Glitter on the hookers

The Love Bus is a mobile place
where we can get together
Love Bus bay-bee! Love Bus baby!
Love Bus, that's where it's at!
Love Bus, that's where it's at!

Huggin' and a kissin', dancin' and a lovin',
wearin' next to nothing
Cause it's hot as an oven
The whole bus shimmies!
Yeah, The whole bus shimmies!
The whole bus shimmies when everybody's
Movin' around and around and around and around!
Everybody's movin', everybody's groovin' baby!
Folks linin' up outside just to get down
Everybody's movin', everybody's groovin' baby!
Funky little bus! Funk-y little bus!

Hop in my Greyhound, it's as big as a whale
and it's about to set sail!
I got me a bus, it seats about twenty
So c'mon and bring your lap dance money.

The Love Shack is a little old place
where we can get together
Love Shack baby! Love Shack bay-bee!
Love Shack, baby Love Shack!
Love Shack, baby Love Shack!
Love Shack, baby Love Shack!
Love Shack, baby Love Shack!

Bang bang bang on the whore baby
Scream a little louder sugar.
Bang bang bang on the whore baby!
I can't hear you
Bang bang bang on the whore baby!
Bang bang
On the whore, on the whore baby.
You're what?... Tin badge, busted!

YAY Hammie! (waved already and my hands are tired from clapping!)

*jumps starts the Geezer Love Bus*

*turn signal set to continuous LEFT*

*loads up on Viagra*

ALL ABOARD!!!

*tooling* through South Beach

*snork*

along a regular transit root?

*SNORK* @ cg!!!! another great earwig!

When I think that my grandmother lived on Collins Avenue, I'm so proud I'm kvelling.

I thought you'd be verklempting, Jeff.

Two snaps up for

Glitter on the bench seats
Glitter on the highway
Glitter on the dashboard
Glitter on the hookers

Wow. That's it for me. Just Wow...

I'm wondering what's so illegal about having loads of cash around.

*goes to clean up his room*

*SNORKs* and standing O's for the HamJays and the CG-52s!!

Standing O for cg's earwig!

Um, not to be indelicate (who, me?) but MtB and Cheryl's last comments beg the question:

Were there any standing O's perpetrated on the "Love Bus" (NTTAWWT, of course)?

Did they play the little "Ice Cream Man" song as they "tooled" through the neighborhoods ?

*Waves @ Siouxie!!!*

*Waves @ Annie!!!*

*Waves @ Diva!!!*

*Holds up lighter for CG!!!*

klez, there could also have been laying down O's or...on the lap O's or sitting down O's.

Btw, they just showed this on Fox News. Good to know the Blog is ahead of major news media.

With all the song lyrics sparking my imagination:

(Please note: No lyric changes needed!)

Get your motor runnin'
Head out on the highway
Lookin' for adventure
And whatever comes our way
Yeah Darlin' go make it happen
Take the world in a love embrace
Fire all of your guns at once
And explode into space

Borrrrnnnnnn to be wi-iild!

I know a fat girl,
she wears an orange skirt
You give her twenty dollars
and you can do work...

LL Cool J Circa 1987

Clearly inflation has had an impact in Miami

Gives a whole new meaning to "The wheels on the bus go round and round."

$40 bucks to get on, but $100 to get off? That ain't right!

*Laughing myself silly at all these comments*

crossgirl, that was priceless!

Yeah, pogo ... I'm old ... still drivin' one of the 'Binders, too ... when I still werk, that is ...

Oddly enuf, a significant portion (like, much more than half? I dunno) of all School Bus vehicles in the USofA are assembled on a 'Binder chassis ... merely sayin' ...

When I was young I always wanted something hot with four on the floor and a fully blown mill. Didn't know that it was always just waiting in Miami.

Davec... I prefer injection to blown, but that's me... Hopefully, the bloglits will think "NTTAWWT"...

NTTAWWT

Thanks to OtheU!!!!

This is the first time I have read Dave Barry's blog and I have to commend the songwriters on here. Very clever, esp. the b-52's remake. LOLOL..shoot, I think the po-po's are such such party poopers....

Liz

Hey kiddies! when someone in Naples (tourist) ask how to get to the beach, I point east and send them to you! You can have 'em!
