I was wondering when somebody would get around to parodying this. The beer companies did well with it but only teetotallers hate their product, and teetotallers are boring.

If you're gonna troll, at least try to be creative or less conspicuous. I give you two thumbs down asshole.

Assuming for a second that you were serious - you give us green-libbys a bad name.

Stop talking with your eyes closed. That's what smug people do.

Is the need for more fuel efficient vehicles and alternative fuels real?

Yes.

Is it true that 30-45 year old white, middle-class soccer moms are GOING TO TOTALLY DESTROY PLANET EARTH?

Nope.

Can you name the truck with four wheel drive,
smells like a steak and seats thirty-five..

Canyonero! Canyonero!

Well, it goes real slow with the hammer down,
It's the country-fried truck endorsed by a clown!

[Krusty:] Hey Hey!

The Federal Highway comission has ruled the
Canyonero unsafe for highway or city driving.

Canyonero!

12 yards long, 2 lanes wide,
65 tons of American Pride!

Canyonero! Canyonero!

Top of the line in utility sports,
Unexplained fires are a matter for the courts!

Canyonero! Canyonero! (Yah!)

She blinds everybody with her super high beams,
She's a squirrel-crushing, deer-smacking, driving machine!

Canyonero!-oh woah, Canyonero! (Yah!)

Drive Canyonero!

Yes.


And very real. I can buy a hybrid today, as I did in 2003, and ethanol blended fuel has been in use in the midwestern US for about 30 years.

Last year, how many Americans killed fellow Americans by hitting them with their cars? Oh nevermind..you can't blame Bush for that. How silly of me to divert your focus onto anything you can actually prevent..

Way to go tamarah, you've just made an ass out of yourself.(golf clap)

When did I blame Bush for anything? Oh nevermind.....I DIDN'T.

BTW- Bush is not to be blamed for our energy crisis, only the failure SINCE HE TOOK OFFICE to do anything to make us less dependent on fossil fuels (foreign-owned ones specificly). Anything that took place before came took office (I mean came into power) is not his doing. Failure to act on this issue while in office most certainly is.

At first I read the headline "Chewy hosts..."

www.geocities.com
 
2006-03-31 02:45:55 PM
Blaming SUV's for the situation we're in is a little shortsighted. It's really an "entitlement" and lifestyle problem. Everyone thinks they are entitled to live 40 miles out of town (so they don't have to deal with "undesirables") yet have every luxury afforded those closer to the infrastructure.

Of course you need to travel back and forth to the infrastructure in complete isolation so you "need" a SUV. Just in case you need to cross a moat or something.

Funny how the children of this lifestyle are becoming the new undesirables...

the biggest redneck here: BTW- Bush is not to be blamed for our energy crisis, only the failure SINCE HE TOOK OFFICE to do anything to make us less dependent on fossil fuels (foreign-owned ones specificly).

Biofuels have become a household word under Dubya, and yesterday brought the first time the HUGE suvs have been brought under CAFE standards.

2006-03-31 02:48:57 PM
Make one, then choose send to a friend, they send the link in an email

"Dead hookers" seems to be the prevailing theme here.
 
2006-03-31 02:53:15 PM
Am I the only one who thought the headline was talking about Chevy Chase?
 
2006-03-31 02:54:21 PM

Those who made their own, how did you get a unique url for it to post here?
 
2006-03-31 02:56:01 PM
this is not bush's fault. This country runs on marketing. Companies hire a advertisers to tell us what we want. The American mentality is to have stuff thats better than their neighbors' Car companies make lots of money off SUVs. Americans have more money on average because they can refinance their houses and take cash out (thanks to the real estate bubble) and are thus able to afford these items. It all makes sense really
