No, in this case it is a clown car.

Didn't the Romanian empire collapse like 100 thousand years ago or something after they killed Jesus?

Jeez...a giant vagina that smells like a fart. Get me a trunksnorkel, mom- Hanz just queefed.

This just further supports the fact that we need a Romania tag like I suggested before.

They are the Florida of Europe.

"Police forbade the family from continuing their journey, due to the fact that the Opel Vectra did not have 14 seatbelts"

That article is full of win

I like the fact that the male up in front did not have to be uncomfortable in the roomiest seat in the whole car.

I guess his argument would be that, in the case of a collision, he did not want them to be injured by the air bag.


thats effin great too.. a bunch of kids in a trunk, next to the exhaust.. on a cross continent trip. I wonder how long till they start puking?

you expect better from gypsies?

Sigh ... How little research can you do? Driving 25mph, *on* a highway, *in* Germany, *next* to loads of BMW's doing .. 100mph .. easily? Darwin is looking at you, and your stupid is strong.

That must have smelled great!

or greatly smelled?

Well atleast they were given ample water supply.
 
2008-03-07 12:20:16 PM  
I like how they sent them back to France (where they were driveng from). It's like Monopoly, do not pass go, do not reach Romania, do not collect 200 bucks. You know they now have to do it all over again, would of been better if they just took them to Romania.

"On Friday, relatives from France picked them up -- in multiple vehicles -- and brought them back to their starting point"

love the emphasis on "Multiple vehicles" ;p

It's sad that they were taken back to their starting point :(
 
2008-03-07 12:45:01 PM  
I am convinced that nothing can scare a Romanian driver. Carpathian mountains + 2-lane road + speeding truck + blind curve + horse cart = win

Then you can take them all out of the trunk and give the kids a good car wash.

First dryers. . .now the trunks of cars.

What new place will we discover tomorrow for our young ones to play?

what's scary about this. . . going from france to romania is a long LONG drive. those kids would've been in there for 2 days probably. i've driven across europe multiple times and man oh man what jerkweed would do this to his kids?

cyber_slacker: Didn't the Romanian empire collapse like 100 thousand years ago or something after they killed Jesus?

are you asking if it collapsed 100 thopusand years ago, or 100 thousand years after they killed jesus?

"The women and children were travelling [damn British] with two men, who sat in comfort in the front seats."

I guess we know who wears the pants in that family.

Not trunk. Hatchback. Big difference.

Still stupid.

I'm pretty sure that in all of H2G2 only two people mutter the word "Belgium" and Zaphod Beeblebrox is not one of them...

Its not just gypsies. We get a lot of dumbassery here in the States. I live near a busy intersection and have been the first responder to several accidents - and I'm not a paramedic. I'll be just sitting there in front of the TV, hear the screech and crunch and run outside with towels, ice and my cell phone. You would not believe the NASTY facial injuries I've seen with some of them. You get the single women or couples who look mildly inconvenienced after an airbag is deployed and then you get the severe and permanent facial injuries in the cars where there are more than 5 people, including lots of kids in laps. One girl's upper and lower front teeth were stove in so badly, she'd turned grey and did not even feel the pain. When the EMTs and firemen got there, they strapped her in first and sent her off. For the rest of the time they were there, they were walking up to each other, looking at each other, tapping their mouths (indicating the extent of her injuries) and shaking their heads.
