Yesterday on the way home from work, NPR's newscaster Jack Speer suddenly, out of the blue, without warning, started talking about the new Chevy Corvette Stingray, mentioning its 460-hp engine, 0-60 time of under 4 seconds, and ability to shut down half its cylinders.

This doesn't sound that unusual, except that of course, it IS. NPR rarely reports on the unveiling of new cars, though I guess the Corvette is an important American icon, and thus got the air time. Got a kick out of it nonetheless.
