       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.
