My daughter Sarah was heading back to work after having her car serviced when she came across this hot little Scion in use as a taxicab.

This is a testimony to the roominess of the Scion, although if anyone is heading to the airport with a couple of big suitcases, there might be a problem, because the trunk is about the size of a foot locker.

I wonder if you can buy the light for the roof at the Scion dealer. If so, I might just go into business!

Now this next part is just gratuitous. We have all seen plenty of whoopie pies on this blog, but we have never seen one being eaten. Well, here's a guy named Ian "The Invader" Hickman, who is famous for eating all sorts of foods in great quantities. You can see what he has eaten here.

In 2006, he ate 36 mini whoopie pies in three minutes at Strasburg, Lancaster County. In 2008, he ate 45 of the average-size ones in the same contest.  And check out this 225-pound whoopie pie, the world's largest they say, exhibited at the food festival.

If you simply must read more about the whoopie pie eating contest, look here. Anyone interested in attending this foodfest in 2011 should let me know as soon as possible so I can save you a seat in the Box. It seems to be in the second half of October each year.

Gosh, I hope it's not while I am sailing up the Rhone River with Holiday Tour and Travel on the River Royale riverboat.
