A Break From Gory Stories For the Non-Medical People


This model of car (truck? van? el camino hybrid?) is a big hit here in Ireland. At first I thought they were ridiculous, now I think I kinda want one for next year.

Tobie says they are a sign of a person who has truly given up.

I am unconvinced. All I know is I want to drive something hilarious, and I think this fits the bill for both comedy and practicality. Ok maybe not practicality.

Can you get them with windows in the back? If so - go for it. But maybe in either bright yellow or orange if possible.

And thanks for the non-disgusting post. Though luckily I knew to skip the 'nail' section of the last one as soon as I saw the word nail. Yech, I don't even like thinking about the possibilities.

NN--My pleasure. :)

I have yet to see one with windows in the back...but I will now make it my quest to photograph the most obnoxious versions I can find.

That is possibly the weirdest looking vehicle I have ever seen. (Except maybe for the Oscar Mayer WeinerMobile. Maybe.)

It could be fun to speculate as to exactly what people are hauling around in that spacious-looking back end (clowns?, livestock?, a SWAT team? - the possibilities are endless!!:)

It is bizarre to not have windows. It reminds me of the Subaru Brat with a cargo cover. I remember as a kid being fascinated by the name.

GEN--Thanks for the dual language comment!

I did take Spanish in uni, but after 6 years of French immersion and 3 years of German, my 'Spanish' ended up being: a mix of Spanish and French words with German sentence structure. It wasn't pretty.

Ninja--Hahah, yes...now my quest will not only be to photograph them but to speculate on fantastical contents as well.

SF--Subaru Brat??? No *that* is a vehicle whose name I love!

GENOVEZ said...

yes, spanish is itself kinda hard to understand, German?:S French?:S...wow! I want to be just like you when I grow up...hahaha ;)...saludos mi querida ABB... sigue asi.. y adelante con todos tus proyectos!!

It's Ireland! It makes the perfect hearse/ambulance for leprechauns!

Albinoblackbear said...

Gracias Genovez--careful or I'll start throwing Inuktitut words at you! hahahah

Really, I need to stress again that Spanish was definitely *not* my forté! (Though I do love the language and hope someday I'll actually get a chance to learn it).

Grump--Hahah--it is rather hearse like. Reminds me of Harold and Maude...
