Let's Get Real

     Hey you!  Yeah you.  I just saw you go by my apartment in your Volvo with rap music blaring.  Yeah, don't think I didn't.  And don't try to weasel out of it either.  Because I heard the lame rap music coming down the street and I looked outside expecting to find what you always find when you hear that in rural northern Wisconsin..a shitty 1989 Ford Probe.  But that's not what I saw.  I saw you almost brand new, shiny, beige Volvo.  And I know that that is where the rap music was coming from because that was the only car on the street at the time.  Well, I hate to break it to you and your Swedish engineering, but nobody in the hood drives a Volvo.  That's just a fact of life.  I know, Volvos are nice cars.  Luxurious.  Safe.  Expensive.  But people in the hood get much better cars, usually Cadillacs or Lincolns or maybe a Benz.  But not a Volvo.  Even once they have kids they don't get a Volvo.  So, blaring rap music from the factory speakers of a Volvo doesn't scream "HOOD!"  It screams "I'm from suburban Chicago and my parents have money."  Sorry to rain on your parade.
