WALK SCANNER

Everyone by now has seen the story about the new Pentagon system to identify people by their walk. Laurence Simon asks the musical question

“Me, I’m just a lawnmower. You can tell me by the way I walk.”
– Genesis, “I Know What I Like”

“Well you can tell by the way I use my walk. I’m a woman’s man: No time to talk.”
– Bee Gees, “Stayin’ Alive”

So, the system will be able to tell the difference between lawnmowers and women’s men. Anyone else?

Feel free to add your own.

(Two Bee Gees references in less than a week is certainly an OTB record.)
