Matt is proud to announce the birth of 1999 Chevrolet Prizm. Prizm has his father’s headlights and power locks, his father’s automatic transmission, parking brake, glove compartment, and rear-window defroster, and also his father’s air conditioning and AM/FM stereo. A mutant gene resulted in power windows and a CD player. The mother declined to identify herself or her contributions, but may have had something to do with Prizm’s 62,000-mile odometer reading.
After a month’s hard labor on Matt’s part, the birth attendants decided to extract Prizm surgically through the checking account. Fortunately, there were no complications, except for a continued checking-account discharge . . .
