Holy Compact Car, Batman!



Apparently the Smart Fortwo has been around for a few years, but I'd never seen one myself until recently.

Seeing it reminded me of a scene from one of my favorite Simpsons episodes, "22 Short Films About Springfield".

You can watch it here — the scene I was reminded of starts at 18:41.

this is the second reference to that Simpsons episode that I have seen in the blogosphere in the past 24 hours

Awesome!

While those cars are so solid they don't really compress in an accident, there hasn't been a whole lot of talk about what happens to the occupants if/when a collision occurs. I also figure that, if they are hit, they will end up bouncing down the road like a ping-pong ball with a sunroof.
