William The Coroner’s Forensic Files

Good Heavens

Filed under: Japery,Uncategorized — williamthecoroner @ 19:18

Chrissy is dead.  She got T-boned by a white minivan, and the passenger side doors no longer work.  As her frame is also probably bent; and as this is Ohio which salts the roads like popcorn, the costs of repairs are more than the cost of the car.  Pity.  I like not having a car payment.

My insurance will provide a rental until I get a new one.  This weekend, all the cars were out of the lot.  No rentals to be had…except for a 15 place Econoline van, or a Dodge 1500 Ram pickup with a crew cab.  I’m driving the pickup.  I have this sudden urge to get a baseball cap.  I have an even stronger urge to paint a home port on the tailgate.  I am going to eschew TruckNutz, however.  I feel manly enough without them.

  2. Buy a Ford. They seem to be doing quite well without gov’t “assistance.”

  3. I’m thinking that this post is the last time I’ll ever see the words “eschew” and “TruckNutz” together again.

  4. I was once offered the choice (during a similarly insurance-funded rental) between a minivan and a Coupe de Ville.

    I could barely fit the Caddy in our driveway but it was worth it.

  5. Although I haven’t seen them (the mental picture is quite enough) I understand that one can also purchase BikerBallz for one’s motorcycle, or 16″ monster trucknutz for goodness knows what.
