||You're going to need a bigger bus!
||Didn't "The Flintstones" do this, but without the pedals?
||I can just imagine the obese parents of these kids,
bleating to an opportunistic TV news reporter how
their precious little porker was left sitting on a
stationary bus overnight, because all of the kids were
too lazy to pedal home.

||I know. I blame the parents. They're the ones who
drive their kids to MacDonald's.
