Buy a Car, Get a Gun

A truly American concept, Max Motors in Butler, MO, is offering new car buyers their choice between a $250 gas card and... a handgun. No, really.

And most buyers have chosen the handgun. In fact, the owner said every buyer "except one guy from Canada and one old guy" chose the gun.

Owners say sales have quadrupled since issuing the offer and they have sold more than 30 cars in three days. Their logo is a cowboy holding a gun (shock and awe!).

"We did it because of Barack Obama. He said all those people in the Midwest, you've got to have compassion for them because they're clinging to their guns and their Bibles. I found that quite offensive. We all go to church on Sunday and we all carry guns." [italics are mine]

Um. ? Yes, that was... that was his point, as well, you dumb, shitheeled hayseed.

But I disagree with Obama, as well: I have no compassion for armed ignoramuses.

  2. It's kinda shocking, isn't it?

    I remember one campaign where they had a "porn for guns" rally, but I honestly don't recall if it was a satirical piece someone made up or if it was real. Basically, they would give you a handgun if you brought in your porn.

    'Cuz, you know, that's a good idea.

    Glad you enjoyed and thanks for stopping by!

  3. I'm sure this isn't the first or last time Americans will hand out free guns when purchasing another product.

    In Canada we can't have a gin and if we do it has to be registered and locked up!
