I saw something funny in my work's parking lot on my way to lunch earlier.  Someone had a sun shade on the windshield of their car. Normally something like this wouldn't be weird except for this car was a convertable with the top down.  Any point of having that sun shield on is negated.

THAT is hilarious.  Sounds like some of the "blond" jokes I've heard or read.Smiley - so funny.gif

Or of a particular eastern european nationality (like myself).

 

You know, like the one that locked his keys in the car, and they had to call the fire department to get his family out. I think that was a convertable too.

NO, say it isn't so??? Oh boy, I think I better dye my hair a different color 'cause that's 2 strikes against me being that I'm from that same eastern european nationality. :smileywink: IF I'm thinking correctly, that is. :smileyvery-happy: I would NEVER use a sunshade like that, however. :smileytongue:

OR there were the two "persons with hair of a particular color" arguing in the woods. The first one says "These are bear tracks." and the second one says "No, these are cougar tracks".

 

Spoiler
They were still arguing when the train ran them over.

Reminds me of when I used a windshield sunshade on the big Chevy conversation van I used to own. Once the sunshade was installed there were big red letters written on the inside which read, "WARNING - DO NOT DRIVE WITH IN PLACE"! :smileyvery-happy:

 

Not very good video quality but the below situation is really cute with a happy ending.

 

 

 

Brings back memories of work when I used to have to put 8' wide boards in our large dumpsters to let the raccoons climb out. There was one park worker who really disliked raccoons because of the mess they made in dragging all the trash out. So once he just shut the lids and let the Waste Management driver dump all the raccoons into the back of his truck. Next time the driver came in he was madder than heck and said he isn't dumping any more dumpsters with raccoons in them. He said he was driving down the freeway at 60mph, with the raccoons climbing out of the top of truck, hanging on his mirrors and trying to get in the open windows! :smileyvery-happy:

 

I'm sure I've told this story before.
