  1. This was an “average” post. “Median” on the scale of what’s usually posted. I wouldn’t compare it to others I have read. hee hee hee

  2. “Why do I have to move with a crowd
    Of kids that hardly notice I’m around,
    I have to work myself to death just to fit in.”

    Add four rear-view mirrors and a zoot suit and Dana becomes angsty Jimmy, desperate to find acceptance but lacking the native “warm” (warm is the new “cool”) to obtain it. “Green” with envy. Identity buried deeply in a false paradigm. Cue-up the stages of grief.

  3. Dana has a racing gas cap and a high performance kick stand on that scoot! (Professionally installed down at the Jiffy Lube)

  4. Dana! On a PINK scooter!
    He’d be right at home in Brighton, where the Rockers lurk in wait!

  5. For some deep background, which I’m sure Josh is aware of, just google “Mods and Rockers Brighton”.

  6. I thought “Dana” was a girl’s name, having met a number of them to this point in life.
    I guess it still is …

  7. Get your motor running, head out on the highway. The engines on those things are extremely dirty. What in the hell does he think he’s doing, using an internal combustion engine for his selfish personal transportation needs.
    If he had spoked wheels, he could put playing cards in the spokes using clothes pins, and then it would sound really bad-ass.
    Maybe he could loan his scooter to “Super” Scott Mandia. Imagine that image and despair. Oh, if he did loan it to Super Scott, Super Scott would need to add a basket on the front for carrying the hockey stick.
    Who knows that Dana didn’t buy that thing because he saw this scene at the Vespa dealer:

  8. Well done, Josh. I like your having Dipatelli (that’s what came to mind when I momentarily forgot his name!) his mouth hanging open, like he’s having to make his own “RRRRRrrrrrrrRRRRRRRRRRRRRRrrrrrrrrrrrrRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!” because his little engine is so pitifully weak (appropriately, just like his rhetoric and his scholarship).

    That’s just not fair to pick on a guy named “Dana”.
    Aha! The ad nom argument!

  10. 1. Mods wore suits, parkas and no crash helmet.
    2. Cruising for a bruising came from Grease by the late great Jeff Conaway.

  11. Dana sure labours on in his conclusion, took three paragraphs to say “ignore Nic’s study because his estimate is low”.

  12. “For those who don’t know the song pun in the title, read about it here”
    At one time I had started a parody using this song. I lost my notes though. (My wife has this nasty habit of cleaning up around the computer.8-)
    All I remember was that it was going to be, “Bound to be wrong”.
