Oh Lord, won’t you buy me a ganley Mercedes Benz ?
dyer drives Porsches, and we’re not even friends.
My golf cart got backed-up in O-DOT traffic on Rt 8 again,
So Lord, won’t you buy me a ganley Mercedes Benz ?

Oh Lord, won’t you keep me off color TV ?
I drove thru speeding cameras and flipped off Mayor DP.
They took me to the Falls Muni Court, where I paid $ 303,
So oh Lord, won’t you keep me off color TV ?

Oh Lord, won’t you buy me a night on the town ?
I’m counting on you, dyer, those DUI checkpoints are bringing me down.
Why doesn’t dyer want parochial schools to get to the playoff round,
Oh Lord, won’t you buy me a night on the town ?

Everybody!
Oh Lord, won’t you buy me a ganley Mercedes Benz ?
My kids all have SS numbers on their titles, so I must make amends,
Got no love from Google in my lifetime, and don’t have any friends,
So oh Lord, won’t you buy me a ganley Mercedes Benz ?

(Award winning, isn’t it?)

Great article, you just put Ganley out there on front street, being someone from Brecksville I can tell you that this article will for sure get someone in that neighborhood calling the mayor and complaining that Ken has a golf cart and drives it in the street and then Ken will have to stop and then it will go on the ballot and then get voted down, great, why don't you go find someone who speeds or doesn't separate the recyclables and put them out there too.

what a waste of ink, paper and what ever energy it took to write this story--if anything, the picture showing the family riding in an open cart should tell you that you didn't think this out--what happens if the cart was to tip over and and his children were in the cart(pupose of buying this was to pick-them up from around the neighborhood 'cause you didn't want to walk seems to me that they are a bit young to be going from house to house to play by themself's)

Nothing quite says 'nerd' like a middle-aged yuppie riding around the neighborhood in his customized golf cart now, does it?

Yeah! A meteor could fall out of the sky and make a big hole and the cart could fall in and the children would all be killed! Get them out of that cart at once! Good god, man. The thing goes 25 mph at the most. Let's outlaw bikes and swimming pools and playground equipment, too. Bad things could happen.

This is just my opinion, but I think that what Mike K was writing about is a safety factor about young children ride in a cart with no seat belts, plus aren't these buildt for no more than 2 people?

There was not much waste of ink or paper because most people, like you, read it on-line. It was not a waste of energy because it was Dyer's energy and he got paid to write it. And since you and so many others (with or without lives)read it, that means the publisher will continue to want to pay him.
