Durst: The Information Superhighway

Beavis and Butthead on Demand. Entire Shopping Channels devoted exclusively to festively decorated portable floss containers. The 24 hour Gum Network. Excuse me while I hitch&hike my way off the exit ramp. And if Congress really plans on regulating this autobahn, kindly do me a favor. Make sure they keep a lane open for us mopeds. I got this bad feeling that the vending machines at the rest stops are destined to be controlled by the same four phone companies. I'm such a techno geek, I get confused by toaster manuals. I still think a floppy disk is that Beatles album I left under the back window of my car one summer. So maybe some speed bumps are in order. Or how 'bout this: an Information Superhighway frontage road. You guys go on ahead. Keep the traffic flowing. I'll set up this lemonade stand at some deserted intersection in the shade.
