Taxi Honk Calculator 3

A recent statistically inaccurate and socially irrelevant Urban Country study has found that clothing affects the number of honks received by a taxi driver on a typical 20-minute walk to work by a typical male urban professional.

Among other important findings, the Urban Country study concluded the following:

  • While wearing jeans, the urban professional will receive an average of 1 honk from taxi drivers on his 20-minute walk to work.
  • While sporting dress pants and “business casual” attire, the urban professional will receive an average of 3 honks on his commute.
  • While styling in a business suit, the urban professional will receive an average of 6 honks as well as he occasional “flash” from a passing car.
  • While wearing no pants, the urban professional will receive 2 date propositions, 1 lululemon gift certificate, and 3 indecent exposure fines.

    The subject is a male and it could be George 😉 The honk is not a “gawk” honk, but more of a “I’m looking for a fare, do you need a ride?” honk.
