Trippy Transportation

My friend Jim got me thinking about transportation;
the wondrously weird ways we've gotten 'round in this nation.
I discovered this top ten list that will likely astound you.
In fact, there are a few that might actually dumbfound you.
I applaud them all for their bold expression of creativity
and boldly driving their crazy crafts where all the world can see.

I'm sharing this rhyme in Holes in My Soles's Magnificent Monday
and also with the group that enjoys You Tube Tuesday fun day.

Josh from "Its Tiger Time" invented You Tube Tuesday so we could each share one video a week which we found to be fun, inspiring or otherwise noteworthy.  If you choose to participate, don't forget to leave your links in my comments section (so I can come visit you) and on Josh's page (so you can be part of the contest).
