Someone able to buy an Audi was calling himself a refugee?
I should make friends with more refugees.

And I think Hummers are stupid and ugly. There. Hah.

But that's because Hummers ARE stupid and ugly.

Also, they would smash my preferred car like a little tin can, and probably decapitate me at the same time, were we ever to collide.

Well actually...

Since our esteemed governor was single-handedly responsible for them selling Hummers to the general population (for which I think he's gotten NO credit (or money) from GM), I wouldn't say Hummers are stupid. Of course they're ugly, they're a military vehicle. Of course that's the real Hummer, the H1. The H2 is just a very overpriced Suburban (same chasis). But the H1 works just fine, especially when's it's armored. An essential option for driving in California. (The .50 cal machine gun is also a nice option, makes people give you the right-of-way).

Regarding Hummers

The military Hummer HMMWV is very functional and is one of the better decisions the military has made in recent years regarding transportation (reference the FMTV -- Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles).

However, riding in the front passenger seat, as I was often required to as the senior officer in the vehicle, will make you hate this vehicle.
#1. That seat is directly over the 24v battery box. That means you get no springs, just a 1" cushion on a steel plate. Add this to the first dirt trail on your left and you suddenly hate this vehicle.
#2 WHAT!? The noise level inside the cab of the HMMWV is approximately equal to a front row seat at a Metallica concert being held on a runway at LaGuardia.

A civilian version is well, stupid.
Is there room in a Audi

for a fish tank?

Man now I just keep thinking about I'm gonna get you sucka when the pimp has the dead gold fish in his shoes.

Dead gold fish? Wow. That's almost as offensive as this.

Work safe.

That was a good movie! Besides, the fish was alive until the shoe broke. I'm not sure how, since the guy had just gotten out of prison after a looong sentence.

Shoes and refugees? Let's not forget Imelda Marcos. The second guy is right: real refugees hide out in style.

...Or are hopeless poseur bastards. Hey, maybe both!

Ahh, but she left those shoes

Ahh, but she left those shoes behind.

OTOH, we have the same shoe size, ever since I spent a few years on my feet. I WANT IMELDA'S SHOES.

Well, except they seem to be mainly f* me heels. Ouch. Suitable for bedroom wear only.

Wyclef is on one of the South Park soundtracks, I believe for "Chef Aid". For that, he gets a little credit from me.

Good point, Jon. He did the song "Bubble Goose," during which Cartman kept insisting the singer was Mac 10.
