I’m amused by the prospect of self-driving cars pootling around our cities blissfully unaware they have pedestrians stuck all over the hood.

Can you imagine hitting a deer or other animals on the road and have them get stuck to the front of your car?

I find something very nice and surreal about the use of the word “scenery” in that context.

I’m imagining a character in a loud suit flying slowly into some over-saturated cardboard cut-out shrubs.

I just filed my patent for a giant wiper that will dislodge the pedestrian and then rinse any unfortunate excretions from the hood of the car.

Or looking out a window of your house and seeing an alley cat stuck there.

Or the football that belongs (or used to belong) to the kid next door.
