Things I Just Don't Get #2

A follow-up to the original post.

1. Why Ham radio operators get special license plates.
2. Why morning TV traffic people have silly names, but no one else does.
3. Bumper stickers with sweet little cartoon characters urinating on things.
4. Civil War reenactment.
5. Why civilians drive cars that look like police cars (even down to the spotlight).
6. Why people think Vince Vaughn is cute.
7. Tractor pulls.
8. Intelligent design.
9. Spam. Not the meat, the e-mail.
10. David Hasselhoff.

My brother used to dabble in police auction buying and selling.

There is a perception (accurate or false -- who knows?) that used police cars are better maintained on average. And, since they are sold at auction, there is the potential to get good cars at bargain-basement prices. There may also be a "Buy American" element.

The spotlight is just a freebie.

Name the movie: "It's got a cop motor, a 440 cubic inch plant, it's got cop tires, cop suspensions, cop shocks. It's a model made before catalytic converters so it'll run good on regular gas."

My two cents:

Vince Vaughn is not attractive at all. He has these weird dark circles under his eyes. I think his chain smoking has ruined his looks.

The type of spam that I find the most irritating is the penis enlargement. There are only two things that can be done to the penis to make it larger and neither is effective. Fat injections turn lumpy (and nothing can be done to increase the size of the head), and cutting the suspensory ligament to release more of the penis from inside the body only results in about an extra inch (and only after post-surgical therapy). Why can't the spammers who claim that stuff be sued by the FDA for fraud?

KipE: Blues Brothers!! And you need to fix the cigarette lighter. ;)

And Jake, it's good to see you've been looking into penis enlargement so thoroughly. Me, I've had to do all of MY research on penis reduction. OK, fine. That's a lie.

5. I'm sure you haven't seen any former police cruisers in Fairway, Mission Hills and Leawood. People that buy those cars don't have late model European SUV in a garage and Blackberry in their pocket. You know, those cars can be handy when you need to ...

... use the spotlight to check the quality of the crack that you are buying in some dark alley.

... scare the crap out of your future ex in-laws when you pull on their driveway.

... become a cab driver for a day or two in order to pay $150 cable bill/child support to Tanisha, Shaquila and DeDe by the end of the week. Just spray paint the car yellow and make sure it smells like ass inside.

Calvin, of Calvin and Hobbes fame, was not a "sweet little cartoon character" by any stretch of the immagination.

That's why we loved him.

And, I don't get Spam:The Meat, either.

Nah, I'm happy with what I have. Poor Ken Ryker can't keep his hard to save his life! He's still pretty hot though...

Anyway, the only reason I know that is because I read about it in some article and my mind never seems to let go of information. You should see me play Jeopardy. :-)

Incidentally, they can't reduce a penis either. But those guys are instructed to email me.
