This Stuff Gives Me Gas…

Well, I don’t know about you, but I’m sick of paying over $3 a gallon for gas. Yet, captive audience that we are, there is little we can do but complain about it. Or start driving mopeds, or those butt-ugly hybrid cars. Puleeze, I’d rather duct tape castors on the bottom of a piece of wood and roll down the hill than that awful fate.

So, since we can’t beat em, let’s join em. Funnies for you:

HT to Gerry for the funnies. Have a good weekend folks.

  1. i loved the first one.
    i’d like to see something with leeches.
    Oh, how our corporations know how to sodomize a consumer.

    It always seems like it’s something. Although, being a lover of conspiracy theories I’ve also read that what’s driving the price of oil are day traders/futures traders – that they are creating the scare to drive the price up. It kind of makes sense to me – look what the real estate industry has done to the cost of houses – it’s ridiculous. Anyway, it’s fun to make fun of the oil companies now and then.


  2. Forgive me WC for I have sinned I broke driving commandment #1 five times since my last confession πŸ˜‰

    Okay Ger, say three hail mary’s and help a little old lady across the street and you are forgiven. πŸ˜‰


  3. I have 2 two word phrases that rotate in my head regarding this subject: “public transportation” and “hello, Vespa”.

    Hey MS,
    you must live in a place where they have decent public transportation. I don’t. I live in the land of earthquakes and the geniuses out here thought a subway would be a great idea. 500 sinkholes later, it’s not looking too good for that idea. Even an El would have been a better idea. Believe me, if it’s stupid and unfeasible, our state government is all for it. πŸ˜†



  4. Come to think of it, I have seen a lot more grown adults riding mopeds lately and duh! I just didn’t make the connection. How sad for them, they probably have their SUV’s parked in the garage for now because they cannot afford to fuel them up and are forced to drive around on mopeds 😦 Oh so sad. Every time I pick up an extra shift at work, sadly I am thinking “Oh, that’ll fill up the car this week” – But you’re right, all we can do is complain, or actually get off our arses and walk somewhere? Hmmm, I’d much rather complain!

    LOL Bella,
    I’ve seen a lot more grown adults on skateboards lately (I live in the land of fruits and nuts – aka California) and I didn’t make the connection either. I am now enlightened. Yah, I’d rather complain too. πŸ˜‰


  5. since I couldn’t find the comment box for ‘Really Stupid Shit’ and I clicked on this after reading that, which made made me laugh, so thank you for that. *le bows* you should make a series out of that. Like when its completely inevitable not to look down at the alien specimen before flushing away. Its unavoidable that your eyes will focus down when you reach to flush. πŸ˜›

    as for gas prices, I concur good sir. I concur.

    Sorry about that Famtz – I had to turn off the comments on that post cuz it was a real spam magnet.

    I am afraid I don’t understand what *le bows* means. And what should I make a series out of, the ‘really stupid shit’ posts? I’ve considered it. There may be a part three in the future.

    As to the gas prices, I’m glad you concur, but I am not a sir, I am a goyle. πŸ˜‰


  6. Hi WC,

    Ha! We here near Memphis are only forking over $2.70 a gallon. The fact that this makes me happy makes me sad.

    Oh, kindly don’t mention your love of conspiracy theories. You are too much fun already, without dangling that bait before me.

    the Grit

    Hi Grit,
    I understand the happy/unhappy thing. Hey, accept your good fortune – I’d love it if I was paying 35 cents less a gallon.

    Oh once we hit the real campaigners for 08 I’ll be flinging around some conspiracy theories for sure. Might as well have some fun with it, right? πŸ˜†
