We bad, son. Bad like the dropsy.
But now Segway has caught up to us. The new models are designed for the golf course (the Segway GT) and for off-roading (that would be the Segway XT). And the Saint Louis Science Center (5050 Oakland Avenue; 314-289-4400 or www.slsc.org) unveils these new editions at noon today during the free Lunch & Learn: The New Segway Models program. Ms. Day, your thoughts on the new Segway XT, vis-à-vis Zombie Road?
Ms. Day: Since it's hard to type while in a GMC Jimmy (whoo-hoo!), all Ms. Day can say is that if she gets her hands on one of these fancy new Segways, she'll be doing more than taking a visit to the smooth-sailin', pretty-grassed golf course, yessirree. She'll definitely want to see how that bad boy handles, and how it can take....
Uh-oh, it seems we've lost the connection with Day; hope the other "Hill" didn't live up to its name those damned zombies seem to be everywhere these days!
Anywho, we want new off-roadin' Segways. With their fat, knobby tires and their ability to scoot twelve and a half miles per hour, the XTs are exactly what N&D Global Industries needs to keep the "global" in our name. Maybe when Village Voice Media buys us matching XTs, we'll become X-N&DGI. Need we point out that the "X" is for "X-treme," bee-yotch?
