The Bus

You can hop on, but you can't hop off

Ok this is totally unethical (but isn't all reality TV?) A seemingly regular bus instead of taking it's usual route suddenly locks all doors and begins to drive out into nowhere, kidnapping all the tired and frustrated people who were only trying to get home after a long day at their meaningless jobs. All the people on the bus must stay on there until they are voted off or achieve freedom through some type of competition. There is no prize for being on the longest; you just want to get off and get home. (Idea strongly based on London Transport)

       Except in your idea, the bus actually moves ?

       That uses an *A demolished - I mean - diminished 5th/added 9th*, doesn't it?

       Like Kramer’s Reality Tour, it could take you to all the local landfills. (Hey, you had your chance to get off…)

       I braced myself, and, holding tightly to the rail above my head, moved to the front of the speeding bus. "You’re not a real bus driver, are you?” I said.   

       He grinned. “Just hold tight and enjoy the ride.”   

       The bus accelerated. “Do tour buses always get a police escort?” asked an elderly American lady.   

       “I suppose they have to drive so fast because there’s so much to take in,” said another.

       "Do not attempt to grow a brain!" God that was a bad movie. {Agree to disagree, eg.}

       That was an EXCELLENT movie. It had excitement, cliche, tension and hilariously bad one liners in just the right mix. And Dennis Hopper. (Yeah, I'm not trying to start an argument).
