Zooming. Crossing the line.
“Faster. The gator’s gaining.”
Alternative: “Make waves or else. The Threat Advisory Scale for Easter chicks and ducklings has been seasonally elevated.”
Fluff is in high demand these days.
Talk about quackers. This could mean a boat load of trouble: Dodge punches the start with their new 840 horsepower muscle car.
The Dodge Demon is “the first production car able to accelerate so hard it can lift its front wheels off the pavement” – for a distance of about 3 feet…video/read more here)
All I can see is high school boys anxious to see who can keep the wheels up the longest. Competition will be fierce and loud. Viral videos.
We’re probably lucky there’s only going to be a limited number of the cars made and dealers are already marking up the purchase prices…which means the “theft by request” incidents will probably rise along with those wheels.
One place where any of those stolen car probably won’t be going is Sweden.
One veteran journalist has proposed banning cars there to keep the public safe from terrorists.
Not sure if that particular reason will mean a car-free Stockholm, but coupled last month’s concerns about carbon emissions and the gender equality issue (What?), you just never know how things will role.
This Easter holiday, many are avoiding ruffled feathers caused by flying and traveling by car instead.
Nothing like a family road trip for making those “We’ll never let you forget this” memories.
Got some warm memories of travel food? Mom always packed apple slices and carrot sticks. Warm ones. No cooler up front.
Lunch predictably was warm, canned tuna sandwiches on white bread served at a roadside park.
But we had a red checkered plastic table cloth – which flapped like crazy. “You can eat with one hand. Hold that corner down.” We shall not discuss the rough concrete benches with unidentified sticky stains.
I can still feel the grit pelted from passing cars.
Road trips now today offer much more options: chain restaurants one after another.
Crossing the Colorado state line couldn’t come quickly enough: Colorado had Carl Jr’s.
The new advertising campaign featuring the return of the “founder” may be brilliant. A rugged Carl Hardee Sr strides into corporate to reclaim his office and to kick out his son while workers carry off the super model pictures. Followed by vintage memories of the company’s earlier years.
We’ll see if it keeps people traveling along with them and makes their female customers happy.
Meanwhile whatever your choice of dining or travel, may you have a good Friday and a hoppy Easter.
