Truth In Advertising


I see this cute little truck around town from time to time. This is the first time I've seen the sign on the tailgate. 

It's an Austin truck from around 1949. I don't think there is a Bushwack Motors. But if there were at least you'd know where you stood.

Maybe Bushwack is out there somewhere in "the mighty forests of British Columbia" that Michael Palin sang about in the Lumberjack Song. We had a similar situation here once. A local doctor used to park his huge, shiny pick-up at the hospital with the legend "Mike Murphy - Neurosurgery and Light Hauling" painted on the side. I think the hospital objected.

My word verification -- I kid you now -- is SAMME. This is shaping up to be a freaky Friday.

BC -- "Neurosurgery and Light Hauling" -- that is crazy!

Laurie -- ha! the verification word I just got? -- testy!

Wayne, love the tailgate sign. Nice truck too.

Brilliant! Reminds of a truck I use to see parked in the garage of the building where I worked. It had "Bushwhacked" on the back window and was plastered in bumper stickers touting things like support for Bush-Cheney, pro-life, pro-war in Iraq, pro-defense spending, gun ownership, and the like. Needless to say, it was very clear which side of the political spectrum that truck owner was standing. All that said, I think I like your truck a lot better!
