my experience is that if one is ever presented with the opportunity for a ride in a jeepney it is something best done while very, very, drunk.

the jeepney became the standard for popular transportation after ww2. mainly in the philipines. they would take abandoned jeeps, and turn them into busses. they became known for their wild decorations and for the third world iron balls of their drivers. they have also caught on in thailand since our air force presence there during viet nam gave them a wealth of raw material.

Sounds like more of an adventure than a trip on a Greyhound with no working toilet.

Either you're on the bus, or you're off the bus.

Actually, I think Dennis Kucinich is campaigning in one of those, converted to bio-diesel, of course.

Why, that's exactly what the driver said before I boarded the darn thing!

But not so drunk that you think you might toss your cookies.

there's a well tested jeepney cookie tossing technique that has been passed down through the generations of south pacific sailors. it involves being on the inboard side of the vehicle while in a sharp turn (and they tend to make no other kind of turn) then nearing the apex of the turn, toss. your lean may be assisted by one or two of your drunken friends which may or may not help and might just end up dumping you into the shit canals that line many of the roads.
