There are so many reasons not to own a car:
- Maintenance costs
- Parking tickets
- Back pain from hydraulic lifts
- The irresistible but dangerous urge to sleep beneath the hood on the warm engine
- You have to leave the car in order to ride a pony
While riding a pony solves some of these problems, there’s still a lot you can’t do with it:
- Carry more than one bag of groceries
- Pick up the water bed you got on Craiglist
- Run errands in no-pony-zones
