The man kept this up for some time, tuning in to every kind of music imaginable just by asking for it. In fact, he was so enthralled that he wasn't really paying attention to the road. Suddenly, another driver cut him off.
Without thinking, the man yelled, "Big, Fat Idiot!" and the next thing he knew, he was listening to Rush Limbaugh.
"I think my generation has one more chance to make a difference."
