"if this bus totally crushes that taxi in front of us, we all win trips to Hawaii"

--the CTA bus driver on the #146 during the after work rush on Michigan Ave yesterday

That guy's sense of humor during the evening rush hour slog north on Mich Ave was a shot of goodwill to the lot of us jammed in that accordion monster. Speaking of accordion buses, see Stranger Than Fiction. There's a scene in that movie that captures the essence of what it feels like to ride an accordion bus. You'll know it when you see it.
