Funny looking car

Last Wednesday I posted in the humor section, a video of a funny looking Japanese car. After that, the following rather silly email exchange took place:

"I'm just waiting for the day teenagers try to see how many of them they can fit in that car as they drive it around!"

Let's see -- given body size and flexibility -- I'd guess about 17.

Lol! Does it count if there's one or two on each of the wheels?

Methinks that any on the wheels wouldn't be there long if the car were moving. On the other hand, maybe they would simply become elongated, as in cartoons.

Okay, that's funny! Is that how my older son ended up being 6'9"?

Please note: I'm off until the Monday post, but that's one you don't want to miss. It will be both beautiful and unusual. I have all the parts; just needs assembly.

More fun:
Murder At WalMarts

Tired of constantly being broke & stuck in an unhappy marriage, a young husband decided to solve both problems by taking out a large insurance policy on his wife with himself as the beneficiary, and then arranging to have her killed.

A 'friend of a friend' put him in touch with a nefarious dark-side underworld figure who went by the name of 'Artie.' Artie then explained to the husband that his going price for snuffing out a spouse was $5,000.

The husband said he was willing to pay that amount, but that he wouldn't have any cash on hand until he could collect his wife's insurance money.

Artie insisted on being paid at least something up front, so the man opened his wallet, displaying the single dollar bill that rested inside. Artie sighed, rolled his eyes, and reluctantly agreed to accept the dollar as down payment for the dirty deed.

A few days later, Artie followed the man's wife to the local Super Wal-Mart store. There, he surprised her in the produce department & proceeded to strangle her with his gloved hands and as the poor unsuspecting woman drew her last breath & slumped to the floor........

The manager of the produce department stumbled unexpectedly onto the murder scene. Unwilling to leave any living witnesses behind, ol' Artie had no choice but to strangle the produce manager as well.

However, unknown to Artie, the entire proceedings were captured by the hidden security cameras & observed by the store's security guard, who immediately called the police. Artie was caught and arrested before he could even leave the store..

Under intense questioning at the police station, Artie revealed the whole sordid plan, including his unusual financial arrangements with the hapless husband who was also quickly arrested. 

The next day in the newspaper, the headline declared ...


See you on Monday!


  1. Okay, that one rated an aaagh. Shoulda seen that one coming!

  2. That's a nifty car for below average height, slim people. Even 17 of them. My family ain't tall but can't see any of them comfortable in there! Max 3 before they start shoving.
