Parking lot Shakespeare

car parked on snowbankBob posted this comment Friday afternoon after the pic of the car parked against a parking lot snow pile.

It's great, comment of the month (and we're only halfway through):

To park, or not to park: that is the question:
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take the auto against a sea of troubles,
And by parking end them? To be towed: to drive
No more; and by a tow truck to say we end
The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
That the auto is heir to, 'tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish'd. To be towed, to park;
To park: perchance to shop: ay, there's the rub;
For in that tow truck what dreams may come
When we have shuffled off this mortal magneto coil,
Must give us pause: there's the respect
That makes calamity of so long life...in a shopping mall.

Thanks, Bob!

By the way: here's the original from Hamlet.

Alas poor Buick, I knew him well.

Amazing.
