Freckly faced Audi come in with pigtails, sees BMW, and sticks out her tongue.

BMW, with her beret and larger build, throws her lollipop onto the ground and flicks Audi.

A fight ensues.

Both juvees pull each others’ hair.

Playing in a nearby sandbox is our Asian weird-girl with a huge ass, thick glasses and braces (a good heart nonetheless) who sees this and tries to stop the fight.

They wouldn’t let go of each other so our asian weirdo pulls both their ears.


As Godzilla give a lecture, a shadow creeps up from behind and towers above all three.

They all look up.

Eclipsed by the scorching sun, they see a grinning British bulldog, doll’s head in one hand and body in the other.

Audi, BMW and Subaru split in 3 different directions at 120mph.

British fatty wins the day.


In Europe and Asia, Audi and BMW have never been openly seen to go head to head this conspicuously.

But in America, they do things somewhat differently.

Jason of 37Signals asked “What would you do if you were Audi?

Truth be told, I’d be tempted to put up a new billboard with the same car but with the price actually advertised. Typically Audi has better value for money, spec-wise.

So, the billboard could say:

“o-60 in $43,000”

(the M3 costs almost 50% more at $67k+)

Well, asking the same question, what should Audi do?

One day, when I’m wealthy enough, I would have a fairly large house in an ultra-large piece of land. It’s going to have a glass tower on a cliff, overlooking the city, a river flowing around and through the main building, a cinema, you know what I mean, all the boys toys that money can buy. And when I do, I’m not going to drive around in my Ferraris or Bugattis, I’m going to use a Peel P50 and Trident. Why? Because I can!

Actually I think it’s to solve my egoistical tendencies that I want to feel like a giant and everyone has to bow to me. Oh, while I’m at it, I might also build a mini-world, you know, like Legoland? And I would crush it. I’ve already done it once before. Look:

  1. Honda Civic GX
  2. Toyota Prius
  3. Honda Civic Hybrid
  4. Smart ForTwo
  5. Toyota Yaris
  6. Nissan Altima Hybrid
  7. Toyota Corolla
  8. Mini Cooper / Clubman
  9. Ford Focus
  10. Toyota Camry Hybrid
  11. Honda Civic
  12. Honda Fit

And the Mini got lost, the Smart was tucked in someone’s pocket and was left at JFK, and the Ford is just a damn copycat, showing up and doing what everyone else does (yep, it ain’t getting off the hook so easily)

You will without a doubt have noticed that the top green car is not a Prius (which is the only green car I can think of). Actually I really can’t call them cars. First of all, if it can’t go above 60mph (100kph) it’s not a car. And I’ve got proof, look at the picture of the Civic GX2 below; THAT is not a car. It’s something from outer space.


Which is what all “green” cars look like. Why can’t they make it prettier? Lexus did a damn fine job.
