route 66

Having spent quite a bit of time on the human version of this road, where you are required by law to sing the relevant section whenever you pass a road sign for an upcoming town on the route* (usually Kingman, for us), I can safely say we only ever sang one version.


Mr and Mrs Bugg are looking like road warriors indeed, in their black jackets and dark sunglasses, standing near their convertible buggmobile.

The text reads: “Junebugg 27, 1985 : BS Route 66 is closed. No further songs regarding this road are ever done.”


* We can’t be the only ones who break into a rousing “Kingman, Barstow, Saaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan Bernadino!” when passing those signs, right? Right?
