BUG AUTOMOBILE GAME

THIS GAME IS PLAYED IN THE CAR ON THE EXPRESSWAY DURING A LONG TRIP
TO MAKE IT LESS BORING. WHEN YOU THINK YOU SEE A VOLKSWAGEN BUG YOU
YELL OUT BUG FOLLOWED BY ITS COLOR. THE FIRST PERSON TO FINISH
SAYING BUG GETS ONE POINT. VOLKSWAGEN RABBITS OR BUSES DO NOT
COUNT. IF YOU YELL OUT BUG AND THERE IS NONE YOU LOSE ONE POINT,
UNLESS YOU THOUGHT A RABBIT OR BUS WAS A BUG IN WHICH CASE YOUR SCOR
STAYS THE SAME. IF THE DRIVER IS SPEEDING HE MIGHT MAKE A STATE
HIGHWAY PATROL OR COP WORTH THREE POINTS AND A COUNTY MOUNTY WORTH
TWO POINTS. YOU DO NOT LOSE POINTS FOR MISTAKEN COPS. PARKED
VOLKSWAGENS OR DEAD BUGS ARE WORTH ONE HALF POINT BUT VOLKSWAGEN
DEALERSHIPS DO NOT COUNT. ONE STRATEGY WHEN YOU SEE A FIAT OR
CHEVETTE IN THE DISTANCE IS TO YELL OUT BUS OR BU HOPING THE OTHER
PERSON WILL YELL OUT BUG MISTAKENLY AND LOSE A POINT.
