  2. I saw an old episode of Cops or some show. They were chasing a guy in his pickup, driving erratically. They chased him for 30 minutes. Then they laid down spike strips and blew all his tires. He kept driving until the tires disintegrated off the rims. Then he drove on the rims. When those overheated, he slid off the road and into a ditch. When they peeled him out of his truck, he declared through inebriated sobs, "I need a beer!"

  4. All she wanted was a Pepsi. Just one Pepsi.
