Pretty Fly for a White Guy

I was on my commute this morning when a very large Bronco type vehicle was trying to fit it’s hood into my tail pipe at 84mph.  While I understand we are all in a rush to get to our exciting desk/cashier/forest ranger/barista jobs I believe that riding someone’s ass in traffic at a high rate of speed, especially when there is no where for me to go, is a dick move.

But, I am a lady, so I chose not to slam on my breaks or flip him off.  Because well, who knows who is packing now a days.  I just took my foot off the gas.  He got the hint and backed off.  Sweet, I am again the master of the road.  I took one last look back and saw this on the front of his bumper.

Clever...

Clever…

I have never understood this.  I get it is some sort of optical illusion, but um, so what?  And why “FLY?”  Is this back from the 70’s when that was some sort of compliment?

All it makes me think of is “Pretty Fly for a White Guy” by Offspring.  Which in its time was a pretty decent tune.  Don’t judge me, I graduated in 1995 and we had some seriously interesting music around that time.

That is a post for another day.

I have also ran across this in my neighborhood.

whoa-lash

 

What the fuck is this.  Now, on this car it is kind of cute.  The vehicle it is on in my neighborhood is one of those European boxy car/bus/ things.  I can’t explain it right now, but open your mind and imagine for a moment those lashes on this vehicle

 

Sessssyyyyyy......

 

 

Which you know what, to each their own.  If you want reindeer antlers on the roof of your car, or eye lashes, or live deer stuck to your grill, or even FLY, whatever the hell that means go for it.

This is America!  Let your tacky flag fly.

But none of this.  Ever.  Please.  I beg of you.

smh

 

For those of you who don’t know.  These are Truck Nuts.  I am not sure if this fad made it out of the South, but feel free to paruse on the picture link below.

Tacky ass shit.

PS.  It was totes a white guy driving the Fly Bronco.  But I am pretty sure that was just a coincidence.  Maybe.
