Xai: I bet the husband was all 'wow honey, just imagine if you had been stood right infront of it when it had gone off' ... 'like you were supposed to'



Two men were discussing their married lives when one mentioned that he was a 3-time widower:

"Oh, I'm so sorry, what happened?"

"Well, my first wife died when her car exploded."

"That's terrible, what about your second wife?"

"She died when her car exploded as well".

"Jeez, that's awful luck. What about your 3rd wife?"

"She died from a caved-in head".

"What, How?"

"She wouldn't open the trunk of her car".

I am struggling to come up with something involving propane and propane accessories, but I don't care enough.

I am happy to put the idea out there though.

I want to see this on Mythbusters. Not because I don't believe it happened, but just because I like when they blow stuff up.

I gotta say, of all the ways your car can suddenly and irreversibly become destroyed, accidental detonation sounds like the coolest.

When the film premiered in New York, audiences applauded the scene. There was such a rash of car thefts in NYC that they wanted to know how to get such a security system...

It's better than pressing the "Launch" button when you wanted the "Lunch" button.

Came for woman driver jokes. Leaving meh-ified. So I'll drop a Mitch:

I once drove for 15 miles with my emergency brake on. Now, I know that doesn't say much for me.
But it also doesn't say much for my EMERGENCY BRAKE.

FatherChaos: The bomb squad determined the cause of the blast was an accidental vapor explosion.

[images.sodahead.com image 300x230]


More like:

The bomb squad determined the cause of the blast was an accidental vapor explosion. Investigators said the use of the car's remote unlocking device ignited vapors from plumber's equipment inside the vehicle.

The boyfriend of the car owner, who works for an HVAC company, had welding equipment inside the car. Investigators believe vapors ignited from acetylene tanks in the truck. It is believed there may have been a leak from that tank.
