Live the Dream

I laughed while driving to the airport in Salt Lake City last week as I sat behind a taxi at a red light. The bumper sticker on the car read:

"Cabbies Wanted - Live the Dream"

Huh? What dream would that be? If being a cabbie is the American Dream, we've sort of defined it downward, don't you think? Of course, for a person from the third world growing up in abject poverty, being a cabbie in the US probably is a dream. Sort of depends on your perspective, I guess.
