When Good Men Go Dumb

My Australian friend, Barb, sends me funny things all the time.  This one is a classic: 

Whenever I’m beating myself up for something stupid, clumsy or ridiculous I’ve done, Ioverload.jpg think about this picture.  The man who owns the car and the people who loaded it, and then I realize I’m quite nearly a genius because souls like this are walking the earth.  Can you see the exhaust?  This car is running.  The driver was found by police BEHIND the car trying to cut the twine.  In addition to the plywood, there are 10, 80 pound bags of concrete in the back seat.  Police estimated the load weight at 3,000 pounds.  Both tires blew out and the rear shocks were driven through the floor boards.

    I did hat to my volkswagon bug one time, but it survived and I made it home with my 60 50 pund bags of topsoil.

    I tied a six foot square fence panel to my car roof once. Very exciting drive home!

    I’m not saying a word.
    I’ve been known to drive home with a couch on the roof of my little car.
    Hey … if I see something I want, damn right it’s coming home with me somehow. LMAO …

    You people are all goofy! Are the Kat’s of the world the only people left with friends who have trucks?

    Hammer – Ah, those good old VWs could handle some weight.
    Jon – I’m surprised you didn’t take flight!
    Jan – Lucky a couch doesn’t weigh 3,000 pounds or your picture would be up here!
    Katherine – Wasn’t that just the silliest thing?

    It looks like something I would try. I once drove home with a large television tied on the roof ( ninety miles)

    At this rate, it would have been cheaper to rent a U-Haul. I would love to know what they were building. If their building skills are that of their hauling skills, they were definitely in trouble!!!

    I once hauled all the materials for a 50′ redwood fence in the back of a Toyota Tercel.

    So what’s this about me holding grudges? You mean because I hated Eragon? I can hardly hold you responsible for that. Wait, you’re not the one who greenlit the book, are you? Because then I may have to hunt you down.

    I don’t know why the guy thought he could haul so much on that little car but it was truly idiotic to get behind that car loaded down like that. He’s lucky he’s alive.

    I’m beginning to understand why there are so many freeway traffic deaths associated with things like running into a sofa.

    I once loaded something to the top of my car and tied the doors shut so I had to crawl through the open windows to get in — but the load wasn’t too heavy, so I’m just a bit more intelligent then this dude.

The free-lance writer is the person who is paid per piece or per word or perhaps. (Robert Benchley)

Welcome to My Neighborhood!

Shortly after I learned to use a spoon, I learned to use a pencil. Crippled by shyness as a child, I found that the things I couldn't say out loud, I could say with a pen, and then a typewriter. The shyness was overcome with education and age...but the need to write has never left me.
