Wretched Excess

Almost as bad as Ho-tel cutting a record was the new soft drink promotion being run locally. It’s something in a green label that looks like the water it essentially is, but the vehicle the “demonstrators” were using is beyond obscene. Go and view this abomination.

A semi tractor with a pick-up bed on the back. Why would anyone buy such a thing, other than to crush Hummers?

Hmmm…do they throw in a set of those rubberized *dingle-balls* to hang off the back bumper? (Just to complete the Picture of those Troglodytes who would own these things and want to be on of those “…drivers who want to make a statement, this is how to broadcast it. Size, power and flash…”)

As an additional absurdity, a trailer hitch is an extra cost option.

…well, if you slapped a 1000-gal. water tank and pump on this baby, it would make a fine wildland firefighting rig, but I do have trouble seeing me cruising the mall parking lot or dropping the kids off at school in this thing…

…but it sure would pull my camp trailer nicely…

Sure, Jack, there are a lot of things that it could be used for that would make sense, but an 8-foot pick-up box isn’t one of them. They had to use the main aisle, because the thing was too big for any of the other roadways.

It’s the new thing in travel trailers, yes? A driver’s seat and a little place to go to sleep? Looks like the Boomer Retirement Home.

The old VW Vanagon is a better choice, as long as you remember the fire extinguisher for the engine compartment.

So how many gallons to the mile does it get?

Correction: It can run on biodiesel. Oooooo
So how many gallons of biodiesel to the mile does it get?

It gets 8-10 miles per gallons without a load, like Jay Leno drives it.
