In a yellow wood

So I was driving to work this morning when I merged onto the freeway behind this logo:

Because you know what Alzheimer's patients are really good at?

Things they know by heart.

(Yes, I know long term memory is relatively well preserved in Alzheimer's patients. And yes, I did just make a joke about Alzheimer's disease. I am all class.)

I don't get the title "yellow wood" otherwise good joke even with it's inherent flaws

It's from a Robert Frost poem (The Road Not Taken):

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

It's not really related except that the "life is a journey" thing reminded me of the poem and I never pass up an opportunity to get my Frost on.
