Shawnee Mission

"Shawnee Mission KIA, just a short drive. Shawnee Mission Parkway and I-35."

I know that for all of you who don't actually live in KC and listen to the radio here, that you don't understand this. But every time I hear "Shawnee Mission" this commercial jingle pops into my head.

Last night I drove through Shawnee Mission on I-35 and was disappointed to find that you can't actually see the KIA dealer from the highway. You can, however, see a myriad of other dealerships. Like Jaguars and BMWs. Things you wouldn't associate with KIA's at all. So, I suppose this is why they need an annoying jingle that you'll remember.

But man... I'd really like to be able to hear the name of that town without singing that.

End Blog.
