The widow and son of Ken Kesey are reportedly seeking a movie deal. Their plan is to restore the Merry Prankster's bus, as made famous by Tom Wolfe's The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, and hit the road with a documentary crew in tow.

Maybe they can recruit Sacha Baron Cohen's assistance, dish out LSD-spiked orange juice and then see what embaressing, bigoted nonsense they can get an unwitting trio of frat boys to spew. Should be good for a laugh, eh? (For the record, I'm pro-Borat, those foolish kids got no more than they deserved)

Meanwhile, back in reality, Willie 'BioWillie' Nelson has apparently offered to install a biodiesel engine in the bus - not clear if he'd do it himself, but if so, I hope he waits until the movie deal is struck and the camera is switched on.
