Not a euphemism, like "blowing up the spot." I'm saying that taxis are exploding - like spontaneously combusting - in the snow-covered streets of New York City. So while we're all cursing the cold and wishing for some heat, maybe let's not wish quite so hard, since, that taxi blowing up in the video below? It's not the only cab that went up in flames yesterday. Amazingly, nobody has been injured yet, but suffice it to say this is a bigger problem than the occasional aromatic cabbie or that super-annoying "Taxi TV."
