This week has had not one, but TWO different tow trucks for my elderly, ailing minivan, and as such I’m a little bit peevish on the subject of vehicles.  Still, I haven’t lost my sense of humor, and at least I know how much worse it would be to end up stranded near Trevor Phillips house in Sandy Shores.  (I’m not saying he eats people, but I’m pretty sure he knows people who do.)  Also, it’d suck to be out where Wile E. Coyote hangs out, though I’m not 100% certain it’s not the same desert.  Either way, the worst place to break down, fictional edition, is what brings us to today’s fully-insured query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) would also hate it if I got stuck in a Scooby-Doo episode, because Old Man Higgins who owns the amusement park would kidnap me as part of his scheme, asking: What fictional location would be the absolute worst place to break down?


About Author

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


  1. Anywhere in the Mad Max universe.
    (My teen son agreed and told me I was awesome for coming up with this, so there ya go!)

  2. The Wastelands from Kings Dark Tower Series. Especially if you get stuck with Blain the Train who’s Insane.
