All together now:

"Three wheels on my wagon

An' I keep rollin' along

Them Cherokees

Are after me

They look sad

They look bad

But I'm singiiiiing a haaaappyyyyy song..........

Just goin

Hickety, hackety, hockety-hi

Them Cherokees never say die

Just a mile along the road

there's a hidden cave

an' we can watch those Cherokees

<short pause>

Go gallopin' by."

Officer: So what happened to the tire on that side?

Citizen: Well ummm, It just popped off and rolled down the road off into the bushes. we were gonna find it after we got separated.

Officer: And you have been drinking either i suppose......

Citizen: UHmmmmm......No?

The early stages of training to steer the rear section of a "tiller" fire truck are a little humiliating.

If Jeff Foxworthy saw this one, he would say: "If you drive around town with a cart as a spare tire, you might be a redneck!"

Jim Bob the shadetree inventor aways got upset when people mistakenly thought he substituted a cart for a spare tire, when in fact in his mind, he just developed the first motorized cart.

Remarkably...this use to be the ingenuity Americans had.

Find a way...make it happen...this is the kind of common sense that built a nation!
