Why dont you turn your buggy into a big vagina and then people have to "pass through it" to get in/out. I mean whats a bigger rite of passage than birth? :P
Why do people with closed minds always have open mouths?

Dropping the Flag of Wonderment.

Okay, "Wonderment" sucks. But a flag drop would be a nice play on the functions of an actual taxi.

Death.




Kinda hard to simulate on an art car, though.

In NYC, we have a Bill of Passenger Rights posted in the cab. Would be funny to mock something up off of that.

Passager Rites or Right of Passenger as AntiM suggested.

Trying to think... Taxi... Get in, tell the hack driver where you're going, they drop the flag, take you there, collect the cash and you go.

Don't tip? Expect abuse.

- - - - - -

OK THere you go. BRC Taxi.

Hack driver. Passenger gets in, tell you where they want to go, you take them somewhere else. Give them abuse the entire ride. Fuck, have a curry-scented incense going under their asses, if you can somehow seal them up with it, heat going full balst during the day (only in the back half). End of the ride, YOU give THEM schwag , kick them out still screaming abuse.

Eh? Would that work? Fuck that sounds fun - I wanna do that. Maybe you sould do a fleet out there... Damn, that would work. License lights on top with things like "4Q2" and "69-4-2" and other off the wall crap.

Yeah, I can see it. Yell-ow Cab - We yell, you say Ow. call Garfield 1000, we'll tell YOU where to go.

Yeah, this could be a cool schtick if done well. And riding in a NYC cab is DEFINITELY a rite of passage for anyone not from NYC. Eh? Eh??

We had a taxi in '04. More like a bus, really... an oval-shaped bus with shade panels. Had water jugs circling it, with a misting system on board. Held maybe 10-12 people at a time.
Worst part of it was keeping people from camping on it. Hated to be dicks about it, but blitzed-out ravers with no destination and riding for a half-hour didn't really add to our experience.

Wait for it.....

Goddammit... I hate it when I see a screen name that makes me hang my head in shame that I didn't think of it first.

Damn you clerkkent...damn you.

This is something I've wanted to do but due to the lack of a cab it hasn't ever happened: A playa cash cab. You can start with the easy stuff from the survival guide, move onto more advanced playa terminology, then continue into the depths of playa lore.

Give the riders a few life lines:

Bend Over: A wild card, one can receive a spanking instead of answering the question.
Make me laugh: Another wild card, better be funny or your getting kicked to the curb.
Ask a burner: exactly what it sounds like. Pick unwisely.

You must earn your rite of passage!!!!!!!
