Better to blow a gasket than to blow a seal, which is something whoever found me by searching for - white guys and black guys with ice cube trays - is likely to do.

Kip Addotta's "Wet Dream" comes immediately to mind:

I was driving in downtown Atlantis
My Barracuda was in the shop
So I was in a rented Stingray
And it was overheating

So I pulled into a Shell station
They said I'd blown a seal
I said, "Fix the damn thing
And leave my private life out of it
Okay pal?"
