Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The text is very witty, especially if you catch all the references and in-jokes. I particularly liked the claim that the picture on your drivers' license looks as bad as it does in order to help the police identify your body.

Con: There's no story here. The narrator describes driving through a town that doesn't exist and then not being believed by two of his friends who also don't exist. But, ultimately, nothing actually happened.
