Tony discovers flat running tires...

Looking out at the Beltway rushing by
Trying hard to use the OnStar to get your tire to survive
In 2015 Tone was 68 and he still can’t change a tire
I just hope Mario’s Liberty Station is up on the right

Runnin’ on
Flat running tires
Running on
Running on
Mr. Tony just ruined a 300 hundred dollar tire

Tony you really panicked
You know the way your pressure declined
I love that Jim Coleman left the spare out this time (No PSI)
Ya know there’s gotta be a Sunglass Hut nearby (No PSI)
You better call your son and say it’s raining outside

Thanks Jason! You never know what is gonna stick and I've gotten lucky lately. I guess you could say I'm going for Speed Shtick.

Very nice. I just caught up on the podcast to this tire story earlier today and it occurred to me this song would probably figure in at some point. Impressively fast.

Jerry, I agree that this has largely become a race to remind you what happened yesterday. And I am sure part of that race. It seems like this is what Mr. Tony and Nigel are into right now. For what it's worth I am mixing in an "ever green" show song about once a week along with the laundry songs that come for Tony's rants.

Great & Tony will surely enjoy this -- but the glide path to jingles about Tony's laundry appears to be unstoppable...
