Once I settled on the Toyota recall as my event d jour, I toyed with the idea of a car driving off a cliff and their cell phone playing a message from the Toyota My Car Won't Stop helpline, but that became a joke about the hell of phone menus.
Then I tried Thelma and Louise driving off the cliff, but everybody remembers they were in a Mustang so that was out.
Then I thought about the talking cars in the Disney movie and what they might say. Did I get a chuckle? I hope so.
