  21. #16: The Shell Answer Man - enraged by the rumor about Kyoto Katie and Mr. Goodwrench that he had heard from his gay friend, Q Lube - crept up to the Cayenne and attempted to wipe the mist off the back windshield, only to find that the steam was coming from inside. He yanked open the door, and was shocked to find his rival giving Katie a deluxe tune-up.

    “Ok, Mister”, he said through clenched teeth. “You’ve thrown your last rod!”

  32. Look, I hate to pop everyone’s bubble, but it is vitally important that driving be regarded purely as a functional activity, a necessary evil, hopefully to be phased out altogether. Prius or no Prius, it is certainly NOT for having any “FUN”. I don’t know how many times we have to tell you that, and we WILL NOT tolerate you sullying our renewable energy sector with your protomorphic high-spirited capitalistic ways. Humpf.

  72. Semi-OT, I’ve been thinking that hybrid vehicles might have some possible military applications. The ability to move in total silence on battery power could come in handy. Others have also been thinking along these lines.

    The U.S. Army envisions that many of its future combat vehicles will feature a hybrid electric power system containing a diesel or turbine generator that will supply electric power to operate the vehicle subsystems, including electric drive and weapons systems. The hybrid electric power system will enhance the warfighting capability of Army vehicles in many ways, including improved acceleration, stealth capabilities for silent mobility/silent watch, energy weapons for increased lethality, and enhanced armor protection for increased survivability.

  110. “White Lightnin Road” maybe didn’t go over so well but “Thunder Road” did. 

    Robert Mitchum was the star and actually sang the title song, which made the charts here in the US.  I remember the song.  Mitchum was a great actor and conservative, but singer-not so much!

    No need to thank me now for that esoteric moment.

  111. #110 okay yojimbo, I won’t thank you! ;)

    Agree with you though about Robert Mitchum. One of the finest and coolest actors ever.

    Singer? Oh god, reminds me of Russell Crowe everytime. Stick to your day job boys.

    Did you hear Mitchum sing at the end of Young Billy Young? I wanted to rip my ears off. argh!

    Darn!  Missed it….:)  Agree on the day job aspect.  You have a great actor or actress that they push into singing for some unknown reason.  You find yourself sitting there going 2:58 until the end of the song, 2:57 until the end of the song.

  113. A Clockwork Prius

    Cheap knock-off Priuses from China are found to have wind-up mechanisms rather than hybrid drive. They flood the UK of the near future, causing social pathologies when youth loses faith in their social system.

    No Country For Old Cars

    Green government rounds up older cars for scrapping, on grounds of pollution potential, trading them to Russia for fake carbon credits.

    Silence of the Prius

    With motor off, the Prius becomes a serial killer, silently sneaking up on victims who don’t hear it coming.

    Prius Driver

    Borderline taxi driver commits murder after being forced to drive a tiny, tinny electric sardine can 14 hours a day.

    Toad Race 2020

    In the not too distant post-hydrocarbon future, solar-powered hotrods stage an illegal road-race from Darwin to Adelaide. Bonus points for every cane toad run over! But the cops, on their ten-speed bikes and Segways, are out to spoil the fun.

  131. Get your motor hummin,

    Lookin’ for recycled batteries,
    “cos solar works only by day….

    Somehow I don’t think a movie about a gang of filthy activists in cutoff hemp jackets whiring into town on Segways, buying up all the mineral water and incence in town then picketting the local police station about the war in Iraq before whirring out (provided there’s enough charge) to seek new nadirs in boring behaviour is going to be a big earner.
