Douchemobile



Spotted on the streets of our fair metropolitan area last night was a late-model Mercedes with vanity plates sporting an oh-so-clever variation of the word "capitalist." And I ask you, in an area that is alternately one of the richest and poorest in the country, is it really necessary to tell someone that your car is better than theirs?

You may expect a real post from me later in the week. I look forward to working with all of you folks in what is a very challenging and dynamic blogging environment. Seasons greetings.

  3. Anonymous2--I must confess to a predilection for German cars (and I'll get a better one when I can afford one) but... how fucking obnoxious is THAT dude? He's one McCain sticker away from being vandalized.

  4. SOME OF THE OLDER EUROPEAN MADE CARS ARE OK I GUESS.

    BY OLDER I MEAN 30+ YEARS OLD AND NOT ANYTHING MADE RECENTLY.

  8. The joke on the capitalist, probably a newbie government contractor, low on class and taste and information: Mercedes is now what Cadillac used to be--the badge of aspirational members of ghetto communities. The Atlantic did a nice story on this "Inconspicuous Conumption" in their Jul/Aug issue.

  9. Anon--I saw that article in The Atlantic. It was very insightful. It's not like that's a $70,000 car. It was very aspirational and gawdy. Disgusting.
