Truck Traffic

I was just listening to Kurt Anderson interview Lucy Liu on his podcast “Studio 360” and heard him say “trucking in stereotypes.” I’m pretty sure he meant to say “trafficking in stereotypes.”

That made me think of the phrase R. Crumb's Mr. Natural made famous: “Keep on trucking.” I thought, “that's got to lead to ‘keep on trekking’.”

And indeed, a ton of people are using this pun, but it’s not as funny as Anderson’s slip of the tongue.
