“Erik and I just got back from taking Jason to the airport for his trip to Panama — actually we’re still in the car, we’re not back yet — and we were just thinking, since LAX is so congested and so annoying to drive through, that maybe car horns should be equipped with different… types of… sounds, depending on what message you want to give. For example, you could have one that said, [friendly] ‘Hey, I’m here!’ for when you wanted to pick people up and just let them know by pressing this outside their house. Or there should be another one for when someone cuts you off in traffic, that — that says, uh, [loudly and fervently] ‘BLEAGHHHHH!” And then there should be another one for ‘when you’re trying to warn someone that, you know, they should watch out, that says, [shouting] ‘Hey! Watch out!’
So… those are [unintelligible], and we think that they should start putting these in cars soon.

Any other ideas?
