The Detroit Free Press reports: Ford Mustang to be 1st to use soy foam in seats.
Earlier in the year:
Bill Ford (former CEO of Ford Motor Company) runs into board room: I’ve got an idea! I’ve got an idea!
Alan Mulally (current CEO of Ford Motor Company): (sighs) What is it, Bill?
Ford: Adam, I’ve got this killer idea.
Mulally: It’s Alan, Bill.
Ford: No, that’s not my idea, Abercrombie. Please don’t interrupt.
Mulally: What’s the idea?
Ford: Aw, now I forgot it. Let me start over.
Ford (leaves room, running) (footsteps get more distant) (several minutes go by) (Mulally resumes meeting)
Mulally: So you can see how the Prius is selling more units than the Mustang, so we need to…
(footsteps can be heard, getting lounder)
(there is a crash in the hallway, with screaming and plates crashing to ground)
Shouts of “Aye! Carumba!” can be heard
Ford: Oh, great, now I have to start over. Again.
(fading footsteps can be heard)
5 min go by
Mulally calls Ford on phone: You coming back, Bill?
Ford (on speaker): Now I have to start over!
15 min goes by
Ford (bursting through door): I’ve got an idea!
Mulally: What is all over your shirt?
Ford: I crashed into the caterer earlier. Then I ran outside and crashed into the lunch truck. You know he sells sandwiches? I had a tuna sandwich. And really thin cut potatoes. They came in a bag. Then, when you called, I bumped into a waiter. That’s (sniff arm) soy milk on my sweater.
Mulally: What’s your idea, Bill?
Mulally: Let’s go with soy seats in the ‘stang.
