Well, it's almost St Patrick's Day

1. "Well, your rear suspension is just about gone, and we'll have to replace the arms, the bushings, and on top of that your brake lines are... you didn't hear anything I said after 'rear suspension' did you?"

2. Andrew Sullivan was immensely disappointed to find out that 'Jiffy Lube' wasn't what he thought it was.

3. "Carbon monoxide asphyxiation... a HOT way to save the Earth!" The Voluntary Human Extinction Movement unveils its new ad campaign.

4. "O.K. Kids strapped in the back. Now, where's that damned lake?"

5. Nope, it ain't Cousin Daisy. Bo Duke just got back from Thailand.

6. The Highway to Hell has some awesome Service Plazas.

7. Almost, but still not quite as pretty as Kasey Kahne.

8. Eventually, Ford gave up on quality control and just hired hotter mechanics.

9. I think she's an Audi... Apparently Under Demonic Influence.

10. In honor of this pic, the world's only auto-mechanic/gynecologist joke:

After nearly forty years in practice as a gynecologist, Marty decided he had enough money to retire and take up his real love, auto mechanics. He left his practice, enrolled in auto mechanics school, and studied hard. The day of the final exam came. Most of the younger students finished the exam in under two hours. Marty took the entire four hours.

The next day, Marty was stunned to see a score of 150% on his exam.

Marty asked his instructor. "I never dreamed I could do this well. But, how did I get a score of 150%?"

The instructor replied, "I gave you 50% for perfectly disassembling the car engine. I gave you another 50% for perfectly reassembling the engine. And I gave you 50% Extra Credit for doing all of it through the muffler."

Johns Hopkins' multi-year project to produce a composite MRI snapshot of the adult human male brain has produced some remarkably unsurprising images.

If life is that highway, I think I might just ride it all night long.

This model's got rear-mounted fuel port, green tint high beams, 280 whorespower. It'll be a pleasure to lube your muffler bearings and polish your crankshaft.

Andrew Sullivan: Oooh, I want to drive it.
Model: It's a stick shift. You know how to handle a stick?
Sully: Sure. Just wet your lips, and blow.

Pardon me, miss - didn't your parents teach you it isn't polite to point?

Now, where is that "Steve O" I keep hearing so much about...

I don't really care if those aren't the right words - you sing it your way, I'll sing it mine.

I never really gave them much thought before, but I'm gonna look into the Green Party now.

Normally, the jack would be in the trunk; but this model can be used for "keep me awake" conversation on the long haul...

Wadaya catch in a green fishnet? A couple of blowfish (a breeding pair).

So this is where Leprechauns hide!
