    A few weeks ago, we posted on comedian Mark Malkoff and his attempt to give out free cab rides to New Yorkers. Malkoff ended up driving around in that cab for 14 hours, and he filmed the entire day. "You can imagine how long of a shower I needed," he said. In addition to regular old cab rides (one ...
