“I was on the Hollywood Freeway durin rush hour -- what a nightmare. There was a flashin electronic road sign -- y’know for traffic control -- that read BACK UP. I drove in reverse for ten minutes. Then, uh, another flashing sign told me to GO FORWARD. I did this for five minutes. Then I was ordered to back up again. Go forward again. Back up. Twenty-four hours later I was a half mile behind where it was I first got on the freeway. I wasn’t gettin anywhere, so I said to myself: how bout Syria it’s nice there this time of year? And, the rest is history.”
