Was That Really Necessary?


Today I saw a Smart car being towed down the street.

Could they not have just picked it up and put it on a key ring? Or popped it in a mailbox?

Haaahahhahaaaaa!
Very funny Dale, very funny!

I want one of those but I don't know if my cleavage would fit and I'd hate to leave it at home.....

New lunchbox?

HA! If that car was so smart, it would be towing the truck.

In Soviet Russia ...

haha! That's so funny! I love those little smart cars. If I ever own a car, that's what I will get! If I can't get a parking spot, I can just pop it in my backpack ;O) Wonder if they make them in purkle....

I can't figure out why the things get such comparatively lousy mileage. I guess it's the tiny wheels, but shouldn't they be getting like 70 miles to a gallon (um er 17 to a liter or whateber it would be)?

BeckEye said...

I'd be willing to bet that the car is at least smarter than its owner.

For some reason the pic and the post made me think of a child's little red wagon...they just coulda pulled it home.

Slaygirl said...

Also...it is so smooshed in everywhere how would you ever be able to tell if you got into an accident?

Andi said...

Wind it up! Wind it up!

I saw an old Ford Festiva on the road in Chicago. They had made a big windup key and mounted on the back. It was pretty funny.

I used to have a smart car, but then I sneezed and it was never seen again.

Allison said...

I think Andi is right, it does look like a wind-up toy. I don't know if I would feel comfortable driving in that on the highway, but would love it for city driving.

Grant Miller said...

Put it in his pocket for later or something.

Will you be doing a post on Pavarotti, Dale?

After hearing the news this morning, you were the first thing that popped into my mind

Dale said...

Don't leave home without them Jin!

It couldn't hold half of what I eat in a day Jake's Mom.

Car not so smart Barbara.

Does anything come in purkle Mellowlee? I think it's a special order.

The gas all goes to through an esteem converter or something Chancelucky to offset the pointing and snickering here in the land of the way big car.

My money's on you Beckeye. How does it feel?

Hey, I had a little red wagon Slaygirl. I wasn't so smart though, I sold it for far less than it was worth. I was only about 7 at the time though. Is the non accident awareness part of its charm I wonder?

I kept the post as short as I could Andi, har har.

Photos next time Deadspot!

I thought I felt something hit the back of my head Pistols.

So no winding roads then Allison? I'm with you, city good, country and or winter, bad.

Or in your lab coat Grant.

I just did Gifted Typist. And although I make fun, I'm no happier to see him gone.

No, if one were to do that, they would have to beware of attracting over amourous chihuahuas.

I've never felt so slighted,--except for that time when I was eighteen at my neighbors pool party and my trunks slid off after my "show-off" dive into the deep end.

Giggle, giggle, chuckle, chuckle.

A Ghost's Story said...

you know, those lil' cars wanna feel like REAL cars. it's in their union contract, or something.

X. Dell said...

As you said, the car was a smart one. Why tax your own engines if someone's willing to give you a tow?

I hear that lots of things in Canada are large, but you guys must have some serious mailboxes up there if you think you could put a whole car, no matter how small, into one. How much mail do you get, anyway?

Dale said...

All manner of small animals might be attracted to the cutie car WP.

That sounds like good blog material for expansion T. if you haven't already. Sorry for your loss.

:-) Old lady!

They've totally got the complex A Ghost's Story.

I just have my mail delivered to a large storage locker X. Dell, there's already too much crap around the house.

wonderturtle said...

Heh.

Zed said...

Look how cute that car is! I want one, and I don't even care if it's dumb. Gimme, gimme!

Please send me one in red and one in purple. Thank you, Dale.

Dale said...

Well put Wonderturtle. Although I'd rather read that word than hear it.

You're so greedy Zed. When I finish cutting out the paper snowflakes to fill them with, I'll put them in your stocking and head for the post office.
