Does it come with 8-track?

If I may steal a famous line, no time for blogging today, my sometimes-better-half and I are currently hitching rides with axe-wielding cannibals from lot to lot trying to purchase a brand new used junker. I'm hoping the various saleshumans look like this,


















but I'll probably get this over and over and over:















Which of course is a non-issue since I'm out and about with my lovely sometimes-better-half concerned about fuel efficiency, not ogling, silly me.

I hope you don't wind up chopped into pieces and buried next to a sausage factory.

You missed the 'Cash For Clunkers" program. There's not a clunker left in the country.

I don't know what's worse, axe weilding drivers or starving used car salespersons. The best cars I've had were formerly owned by nurses. Always have to be there on time you know.

Good luck, Randal. When buying a car, remember this. The German word for Vaseline is vienerschleider. :-(

Don't buy the Torino just because it has the 'Starsky and Hutch' paintjob.

;>)

Good luck!
I hope that you and your lovely wife find the perfect car. :)

I'm thinking a Mazda.... :P

Graves, you swine!

I did not know that the Mayor of Cleveland was a used car dealer.

Hope you get a good vehicle. Be nice to the other half..she can make your life miserable dude. ;)

Be careful they don't stand too close when you check out the trunk. Used organs have value too you know.

"The German word for Vaseline is vienerschleider." That word sounds awfully similar to vienerschnitzel. What does this say about Germans?

Even more alarming, what does it say about me, the fact that those 2 words crossed my mind?

Good luck with the car search.

There is always time for ogling.

I might have returned to life, but not if you get chopped up and fed to cannibals.

Randal Graves said...

übermilf, I hope I could almost believe you.

holte, sure there is. They meet every weekday on Capitol Hill.

demeur, I wish I knew some sexy nurses.

tomcat, those Germans have a word for everything!

darkblack, c'mon, who cares if it runs as long as it looks cool!

sunshine, don't think a stretch limo complete with chauffeur is more my style?

tengrain, oh sure, when he's not making sausage at Ray's. We multitask here in the midwest, slacker.

dusty, whaddya mean 'can?' ;-)

mrmacrum, believe me, I know. I'm not sure I really need two kidneys. What's the going rate on the Asian black market?

tom, it says that we've already called the authorities but don't worry, we told them not to tighten the straitjacket too much.

BB, spoken like a true married guy.

the real pretzeldent, holy hell, you are still lost in the Stevens Tubes!

If you are going to drink and drive, don't forget your car.
