“‘Slumped’ even sounds uncomfortable, doesn’t it?” Pigeon Stapleton asked rhetorically. Stapleton’s company, Catatonic Controls of Slunt Falls, recently released its innovative Model 1055 steering wheel for drivers who, for whatever reason, wind up face-down on the steering wheel. “We like to say our steering wheel is slumpable,” Stapleton laughed, exposing a gleaming silver front tooth.
“Statistics show that 99-percent of slumpers go face-down on that part of the steering wheel,” Stapleton explained.

says Catatonic Controls president Pigeon Stapleton.
“Some of our customers are those who have too much to drink and don’t want to drive, so they wind up slumped over the steering wheel in a parking lot,” she said. The Model 1055 is more comfortable so they can get a better night’s rest. The rest of the slumpers are usually…um…dead.”
