These days, 80% of my conversations are with either confused customer service agents or my eight-year old, and generally, the eight-year old has a higher quality discourse. We were talking tonight about her latest fascination, the 80’s adventure cartoon “Jem,” and how she has a cool pink roadster with her name on it, which stemmed into a discussion of cool superhero’s cars. The Quinjet, the Fantasticar, even the much-maligned Supermobile all had one thing in common: They looked AWESOME, even if they made no sense.
The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) is this: What’s the coolest pop-culture mode of transport? KITT? The Batmobile? Inspector Gadget’s helicopter hat?
