Maddie's First Lesson in Ethics

While driving around doing errands with Mom and Maddie yesterday, a real asshole cut us off, coming within inches of the car. I instantly cussed out the bastard and gave him the finger. My mom, however, reminded me that I should get in the habit of not swearing so much, especially as Maddie gets older. She turned to Maddie and explained the following taxonomy of bad drivers.

Mom: Now Maddie, we call those drivers who are just clueless and don't know better, TURKEYS.

Maddie: Puzzled look. Burp.

Mom: But, we call drivers that know better but still persist in dangerous driving, JERKS because they are EVIL.
