AGW Today: Join In The Newest Craze-Smart Car Dunking

Alright, not everyone buys a smart car because they are one of the .5% of AGW believers who are actually walking the talk, rather than just yammering on about concensus and awareness. They might make sense for someone who pretty much just lives and drives with a confined city, someplace like New York City or London. But, I just can’t see paying $15,000 to $20,000 for a micro-mobile death trap, when I could get a scooter, moped, or motorcyle for less then $5K. Couldn’t even fit a surfboard in a smart car.

Anyhow, apparently, smart cars are giving some folks in Amsterdam some excercise and fun

SMART car owners have been left Smarting over a new craze — for chucking their motors into canals.

Dutch pranksters in Amsterdam have dumped dozens of the tiny two-seater cars into the city’s waterways.

And now police fear the bizarre trend will spread to the UK and the rest of Europe.

Eco-friendly Smart cars are small enough to be picked up by just a few people and dumped into the Dutch capital’s canals, reports De Telegraaf newspaper.

The police are telling people not to talk about it, lest it become an even bigger craze. So, please, don’t do it! Snort.

    OMG, I haven’t laughed so hard all week!

    Vandalism is funny ? Are these more right wingers who do not believe that the climate is changing ?

  3. Trish says:

    My goodness John, do you have any sense of humor? Did you never pull a prank as a kid? (perhaps that’s what’s missing, you never had a chance to frolic)
    As long as no one was hurt, I can laugh at this and let the Dutch police handle the vandals and their sentence.
    For now, I just think that the little ugly barely a car got what it deserves; a dunking! If the story had had human tragedy in it, I would not have gotten such a kick out of it.
    Sorry to offend your tender sensibilities!

  4. It shouldn’t be funny, but, sorry, John, it is. I bet you were laughing when Bush fell off his bike, when a jihadi tried to kill Cheney, and when GOP tires were slashed on election day 2004, eh?

    We used too pull 2 great pranks on mischief night in NJ, something they do not have down here. First, we would take TP, roll it up to look like rope, and tie it up across the road between street lights. Since there were tons of old growth trees in my hometown, it went light, really dark, light, really dark “OMG what the hell is that!!!!”

    The other was to put shaving cream, or dog poo (if the person was a jerk) under the handle of cars. Back then, remember, door handles tended to lift up, so, there was a great spot under them people would stick their fingers in.

    OOOOOOhhhhh, those were great! I can’t wait for next mischief night!!!!!!!
    We had a neighbor when I was growing up in Paoli PA, who handed out rolls of tp to us kids! Good clean fun she said!
