** "[[BigOMG ZOMG]] a Dodge Ram, 1998 vintage, barreling directly toward me at a velocity of 98 miles per hour! I remember from the movie ''Film/{{Twister}}'' that these trucks are practically indestructible. Boy, ''Series/KnightRider'' was a silly show, wasn't it? With its TalkingApplianceSidekick car and all. I think I may have left my iron on. Or maybe the oven. I hope Bob did the dishes, that ketchup will be hard to wash out. That truck is going to turn '''me''' into ketchup! O sweet Tropernia! If only there were some way I could save myself! This is the end! ...Where was I again?"
