09/19/2005: Drivers wanted.
Steve at The Sneeze ("Half zine. Half blog. Half not good with fractions.") may be on his way to becoming a Volkswagen partisan. In particular, a fan of the Passat:
...I keep seeing a commerical for the new VW Passat. In it, two guys are playing football on the street and one of them goes long, dives to catch the ball and lands hard on the hood of a Passat. He then rolls off to the ground, unhurt.As a long time VW partisan, I heartily welcome another one to the fold.
The announcer goes on to talk about Passat's new "Front-End Pedestrian Saftey System" which apparently makes it safer if you hit somebody. This is the best news ever. It seems to me this is a license to mow people down at will.
The Passat people are geniuses.
The next time someone is taking too long to cross the street, I can playfully knock their asses across the road for them. Life just keeps getting better. First boobies, then Tivo, now this. Yay!
