KRS-ONE had an homage to this in the cover for the classic By All Means Necessary album.

It seems to be unavailable but I remember a pretty funny Daily Show segment with Jerry Van Dyke talking about his new ice cream shop. Mo Rocca, however, kept asking dim witted questions about My Mother The Car, like, “So were you keeping your mother’s corpse in the car?”

My late father lived much of his later life with severe hip problems and pain (a rare blood disease destroyed them and required him to get a double replacement in his early 40s) so I can empathize here.
