People who put a ton of stuffed animals and other crap in their car’s rear dash!

Published by at 3:00 am under Why?!?

I don’t really have much to say about this because it just bugs me but for no valid reason. I was trying to come up with some interesting angle or some funny analysis of these people but I simply am not that talented. It might also be that I just ate a shit load of Long John Silvers. WHY did I do that? I’m praying for death right now. I think I might be going blind.

    I think they’re ok for keeping kids preoccupied – but when grown men and women have them for their own amusement, I get worried. I mean, what are they trying to say by displaying them? Are they trying to look cute/non-threatening to prospective partners?

    Maybe there’s a secret stuffed animal brotherhood out there and I’m just not part of it.

    I’m with you here – the rear-deck menagerie is a road-going hazard for sure. Whenever I see one, I get distracted and pissed for no apparent reason, which is a danger. I do enjoy though seeing them all dry-rotted and faded from baking in the sun.

    What’s worse yet is shit dangling from the rearview mirror – this should be upheld by police officers, because in most states, I believe it would usually constitute “impeded operation” – think about it – you have a fucking CD, or prism, or an air freshener even, dangling there – its right in the line of site for say, a pedestrian or cyclist in a crosswalk at 45 degrees to your car. Then there are those big feather and fake gemstone “dream catchers” you see every now and again.

    fucking UGGH.

    It could also be related to the fact that the “adults” who put stuffed animals in their window are mentally-stunted in a pre-pubescent state. Seriously, folks, grow the fuck up. You want to hold on to the magic of youth a little longer, you don’t get there by clinging to childhood toys. Same rule for the people who collect dolls or Star Wars figures or Lego and keep them hermetically sealed. You are not “endearing”. You are creepy.

    I think maybe I mostly hate the clutter. I don’t like it when the interior of a car of filled with crap. I saw a car once that was filled to the middle of the windows with garbage except for a tiny space left for the driver. First of all, gross. Secondly, paper is heavy and I would not be surprised if all this garbage added an extra 1,000 lbs. Great for gas mileage!

    A buddy of mine had a Jeep CJ-5 or something years ago, and because it basically didn’t lock, or have a top for that matter, he affixed various bits of trash to a big piece of burlap, and would lay it over whatever he had in the back of the Jeep to dissuade would-be thieves..

    Good idea, if you ask me.
