Now Ah've Hooditawl!

Hey, coming to you LIVE, from Starbucks!
Well, now I have surely "heard it all" as they say!
Apparently several GPS companies have approached.... no, I can't even say it just yet.
Let me put this blog in neutral for a bit.
OK, the way I understand it, those GPS systems that speak to you in your car, navigating you to your destination -- isn't the whole idea supposed to be clarity?
A LESSENING of the confusion as you drive, so you do not have to consult a map or really even think all that hard about where you are going?
Exactly.
The whole premise behind these wonderful gadgets is to HELP YOU GET SOMEWHERE WHEN YOU DON'T QUITE KNOW THE DIRECTION.
Well, apparently several GPS companies have approached BOB DYLAN to be the new voice-over for their systems.
BOB DYLAN!
Yes.
To me.... isn't this sort of the equivalent of posting signs like the above all over our streets and roads?
Can you even imagine?
You're driving along and then -- "Ohhh... tunnleff'a the.... or mebberight, no. Leffa the...'sa one-way DAMN, no, leff, naw right a'theness' cone-uhh!

Click on the sign!
