Whatta buncha candy***es!

I know many have trouble differentiating between fiction and reality, but come on!

I remember back in the day, when Ford began importing their big European performance car, the XR4Ti. I got hold of a promo tape... and darn near fell asleep watching it.

Here's this car where they brag about the Euro suspension, power, prowess, etc., etc., plodding around neighborhood streets at 5 mph. Whoa- color me impressed!

I wrote back to them and ripped 'em a new one. I swear these marketing guys are dumber than stumps.
