Greased Lightnin': way cool tips

Greased Lightnin': way cool tips

Why is this chapter named “Way Cool Tips”? It's because “Boring Regular Tips” was already taken (psych!). Actually, it's because this is where a lot of the really cool tips wound up that didn't fit into any of the other categories. I don't really have anything else to say about this chapter, so instead, let's fill this space by singing a verse of “Greased Lightnin'” from the motion picture Grease. “We'll get some overhead lifters, and four-barrel quads, oh yeah (keep talkin', whoa, keep talkin'). Fuel-injection cutoff and chrome-plated rods, oh yeah (I'll get the money, I'll see you get the money), with the four-speed on the floor, they'll be waitin' at the door, you know that ain't no….” Hey, wait a minute—that next word is a cuss word. Okay, no problem, we'll skip over that word and continue, “…we'll be getting lots of….” Gees, another nasty word. I've been singing that song for years and never really noticed how nasty it was. Just to be safe, let's just jump to the end of the chorus, “…you know that I ain't braggin', she's a real….” Oh, that's just wrong! I'm stopping right here.
