A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words

Take this picture, for instance:

Ha Ha!

I can think of a great many words that this picture is worth. Such as, “Ha ha”; “You dumbass”; “Your plastic-carbuncle-encrusted Hummer H3 is neither an unopposable force of nature nor an indestructible triumph of military technology”; and of course, “Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha”.

Amazingly, the driver of the H3 was not killed in the crash. Kind of a pity, in a way; given that this is a rear-ending on what appears to be completely bare-and-dry blacktop, (s)he is almost certainly at fault. I’m not sure I want this person using the insurance money to buy another self-esteem-mobile and take to the roads again, using that same brain, only more concussed.

On the bright side, look at how little damage that bus suffered in what must have been a spectacular crash. Other than the seats probably needing a serious steam-cleaning, it looks just about ready to go back on the road. Nice to see American motor vehicle companies are still building some things right.

    Was the bus not yellow enough? Was it too small? I understand, you’re late to pick up the kids and get them to soccer, you’re on the phone, you’ve got a burrito in your other hand, your doing 80 mph in a school zone, and some idiot parks a school bus in front of the school. It happens right?

    But wait, let’s talk bias in the media for just a sec. This is how the reporter saw this:

    No children were on the Indianapolis Public Schools bus when it collided with the SUV….

    Which vehicle did the colliding?

    Dang, Dude, that’s a good catch. Just how does the back of a bus “collide” with the front of a car behind it? And at what must have been a not-inconsiderable speed, flimsiness and overall crappiness of H3s aside? What, was the bus driver careening along the street backwards at 40 miles per? Wish my car could travel that fast in reverse. It’s like punching someone in the snoot and then calling the police because your victim hit you in the fist with his face. 😛

    you’re on the phone, you’ve got a burrito in your other hand….

    I was betting on doing the eye makeup while talking on the phone, but the burrito works equally well.

    And the local city council’s planning department wondered why we neighbors blew a gasket when the woman who owns the (vastly oversized for her and her daughter) house next door wanted to put in a daycare center. I can’t imagine the chaos that would have caused with the traffic on our already busy and poorly regulated street. Mom’s late to work, Dad’s got an important meeting, and the 20mph residential street speed limit becomes even more of a “polite suggestion” than it already is. Yeesh.
