A New York cabbie thinks he is having a bad day when he picks up a strangely dressed man who wants to go to the “other side of town”. A special remote control takes them through the “Finkon Tunnel” instead of the Lincoln Tunnel which is just the beginning of the bizarre journey to a part of New York where what looks familiar is actually quite different. Word play abounds throughout the story and the cabbie is really glad his fare left the remote control behind in the cab. A surprise awaits him when he gets home just in time for dinner.
