The Cars from Hell go Ting-a-ling-aling
Anyway that brings me onto electric cars, not the exiting Scalextric kind but the ridiculous, inefficient toys which the green meanies think we should all drive in future. I saw this on the Sun website. Nevertheless I will choose to believe that it is true for now. Interesting that they refer to these as ring tones. Very appropriate as the battery life of these kiddycars is about the same as that of a mobile phone.
That said, if and when the sad day comes and I am forced, at gun point, to trade in my excellent diesel powered ride for one of these ridiculous mobile batteries I will insist on having separate "ring tones" for town and country driving. When driving in the countryside I would want it to make a noise like a wounded sheep, so that the sound matches the performance. I should be fine providing I stay clear of Wales. When driving in town I want my "ring tone" to be the beep beep beep noise made by pelican crossings to tell blind folk that it is safe to cross the road.
