"Uh, yeah, so I was explaining to my daughter the Rules of the Road. I spotted and so I pointed out to her an older woman on a moped, ah, a Vespa -- the bike's a Vespa not the lady. I told my daughter, “Be careful: moped riders have been known to track down and pulverize or even kill anyone that dings or dents their bikes. So, if you have a fender bender with a Vespa driver -- whether you want to or not -- you have to do all you can do to finish the moped driver off or they’ll get you. I keep a jar of leeches, a monkey wrench from Macedonia, and a speech on liberty, freedom, and human rights by ISIS on the end of a javelin in case I need it.”
