Okay...

So give the hybrid the "bubbling" sound from "The Jetsons" cartoon.

That would be hilarious!!!

lol, no actually it was a rant about why do we always have to have a law about something. How about a balanced budget and no more new laws....Especially in light of our Governator wanting to look into whether any legislation can be enacted as a result of the bus accident tragedy. I thought...what a friggn grandstander, this is a tragedy, and an accident, no amount of laws can prevent all accidents. It just bugs me that every politician wants to get a law on the books to make a name for themselves and we have too many laws as it is....I wish we could get to the very basics and simplify....

Of course, that is unreasonable, so back to the Jetsons, that would be funny..

I have a Prius, maybe I should put playing cards against the rims? Like kids do. Or, I know, look out the windshield when I drive and watch out for people with white canes because they might not see or hear me.
Look out

How about a man carrying a flag running down the street in front of them warning everyone?
