New York City one-liners

Highway sign:	Welcome to New York City.  Now go home.

Button:		Don't tell me what kind of day to have!

Traffic rules:	The biggest fastest thing in the intersection
		has the right of way.

		Drivers have the right of way over pedestrians
		whom they do not visibly acknowledge having seen.

		You can get away with anything you do smoothly enough.

Lighthorn:	The smallest unit of time.  It's the time between
		when the traffic light in front of you turns green
		and when the cab driver behind you leans on the horn.

Riddle:		Q. What is a laid-back New Yorker?
		A. Someone who takes the local.

[This last one may need some explanation.  In many parts of New York,
 there are two subway lines running in parallel.  One, the `local,'
 makes every stop.  The other, the `express,' stops only at particular
 stations.  If you're in a hurry, and your destination is not an express
 station, you get on an express at the first opportunity, then switch
 back to the local for the last few stops to your destination.  This
 saves you time only if the express you're on overtakes the local
 ahead of the one you were previously on, but a lot of people
 do it anyway.]
