Round little bugga



This image was over on Break.com. Thought it was pretty interesting. Pretty sure a round orb is not the best eco-shape. But different and worth sharing none the less.

Excuse me? No part of my anatomy is green :-)

I should perhaps explain that my dog is extremely particular: she'll only chase green tennis balls. Try a different color, or a smooth plastic ball (let alone a stick), and she just gives you the "I have no idea what you're going on about" look.

Cool -

Looks like body parts from a classic VW Microbus. The smaller track on the rear wheels makes me think it's a BMW Isetta underneath:



It must be custom, otherwise I would expect to have seen it here :
