Tricycle City: Vehicles: Bart's Skateboard, Jasper

Bart's Skateboard, Jasper, is one of the only things cooler than Bart.  Well, he's cooler than regular Bart, but
he's NOT COOLER than bootleg t-shirt Bart - especially the bootleg t-shirt Barts where Bart is Black
and either a Jamaican Rasta or a Michael Jordan Bart.  But Jasper definitely IS COOLER than regular
Bart and WAY COOLER than any of those Tech Decks or any other miniature skateboard.
If you don't understand why Jasper's the coolest, well then you just don't get it and you shouldn't
try to get it.  All I'm saying is you don't see Jasper playing himself out after 78 seasons and still
pretending to be a 9-year-old badass.  Jasper knows he's getting old, he needs to wear glasses to read
now and he enjoys a good cup of tea.  Sometimes he even rides around in a wheelchair.  He likes to
reminisce about the old days, when Bart wasn't quite drawn right yet, and when "Cowabunga"
really meant what it's supposed to mean.
