This Is a Survey

How long have you had your present car? Is it domestic or imported? Please elaborate.

  1. Hi all,
    Response to survey:

    1) 3 years
    2) Imported

    3) Elaboration:

    It is a Flying Wombat with a Mozambique purple metalic paint finish.
    It is powered by a hybrid engine, fueled by a puree of silk worm vomit and wasp drippings!

  2. David, so you have a "hybrid"?

    Mine's 5 years old, imported, and will last forever, at least, as long as I will...

  3. 1....2years USA
    2 27yearsa import

    One is a silver fox and the other is a black demon...

  4. 7 yrs old, imported, value car, good warranty and trouble free so far.
    I run them 'til they die, really die!

  5. I had 1998 Toyota Camry, only 74,000 miles in excellent condition, but had chance to buy a 2005 Camry, only 24,000 miles, from owner I knew who had taken very good care of it. So I bought the 2005 and sold the 1998 privately. Am very happy with the new car. I had a chance to buy a brand new hybrid fueled by bat droppings and fleas' eyebrows, ala Mr. Israel, but it seemed a little pricey to me.

  6. Hi Lanny,

    I looked at the same vehicle, and upon research, I found that while Bat guano was readily available, the flea's eyebrows were impossible to obtain!

  7. I think it is the old “Shall we use the corn to feed the hogs or to produce ethanol?” supply-and-demand issue. Fleas’ eyebrows on toast (it is made into a kind of pate) is a delicacy in some Asian and Middle-Eastern countries, where the harvesting of fleas is big business. I wasn't aware of it, but apparently in the present economy there must be little left over for the production of fuel for hybrid cars. But look for this to change with the vicissitudes of the world market.

    How about this, folks? Have I done almost as well as the maestro himself in this little exchange?

    Now what was the original topic?

  8. Hi All,

    It is clear, that there is a fundamental lack of understanding of the Flea's Eyebrow issue.

    There is only one genus of flea that is useful for hybrid catalytic fuel!

    When the Gobloots disease came across the border on the hind legs of the Boo shoo bird, there was a unique type of flea on that particular bird. As you are aware, the gobloots attack the human zorch, and the effects can be devastating.

    The Boo shoo birds were exterminated in the 1940s, but not before the fleas in question had migrated to another unique host, namely, the Lycopodium plant, which is to be found only in the Great dismal swamp.

    It is through the harvesting of this particular Lycopodium plant, harvested in the dark of the moon, that we derive the flea's eybrows that we require for fuel purposes!

    I sincerely hope that this clarifies the issues involved.
