Goodness gracious me, what is THAT?

Two days ago I went to a new outlet mall recently opened in the outskirts of Bucharest.
It's on the road leading to Pitesti, in case you want to go later.

I can't remember the name of the place, but it was cool. Most of the stores weren't opened yet and the food court also wasn't ready. But that's cool. Oh, and all the service people were surly and not in the least bit helpful. That wasn't cool.

I didn't know I was still capable of saying "cool" so many times in the space of 2.5 minutes. I'm well past my teenage years... This is strange...

Anyhoooo, on the way back home, we (Costel and I, Costel being my driver) spotted this specimen of engineering technology.
I have no idea what category it falls under - bicycle, moped, car
truck....
It looked like something the driver made in his shop at home.
There were welded edges and the paint looked like it was
applied with a brush. Still, it got the man to where he wanted to go (I assume).
So, who am I to laugh? (snigger)


Here he is, changing lanes - such workmanship, an engineering marvel to be sure.
The next time you are unhappy with the form of vehicular transport you may own,
think of this guy and be ashamed, cause he made this and you paid somebody for that piece of crap u have parked outside.

LOL.

With lots of love,
Froopert.

Hello,
I've been reading this blog for a while - I like it, it's very different...
Earl, are you available to make me a set of wooden teeth?
I see Ratnesh's mother needs it more than me. So maybe after you make her's?

Frooples and Froopert, keep up the good work!

I like it! I think it's cute! I saw a while ago someone brought some of these vehicles to TT to sell- They were some Chinese model... I never saw anyone driving one though. I think even if someone thought it was nice, they would still feel shame to buy and drive one.

I, on the other hand have no shame and also have no money.

Earl said...

Ratnesh Mudder, I'z kin make the teeth fur yous but Iz kin tell yurs gonna take sum time. Go to Uncle Joe's Laundry, Croc-cesories and gas stashun on Monday night and i'll com messhur yur mout.

Hi Kadhine ;-)

Frooples & Froopert said...

Ratnesh Mudder,

I noticed that you finally stopped SHOUTING at us in CAPITAL LETTERS.

Also, why don't you ask your son or go get it yourself! I don't know you! Do you think I have nothing better to do than to buy products to make you make product?!

Ratnesh, get a life. We don't need to tell your mother because she reads this blog and when she see's your comment... you're...gonna...get...it!

Earl, good to see you! I think you have a little crush on Kadhine, don't you? YOu do know she's married right? Inot trying to be rude, I am just concerned about your feelings and I don't want to see you get hurt.

Froopert

Earl said...

Boy, din I tell yous tuh stop talkin tuh these here nice girls?! Do yous wan me to com thur an disiplin yous! Boy, i'll put yous cross my nee an gi yous the spankin of ah lifetym!

Brian James said...

Yes Froopert that sample of a vehicle is not safe. What if said driver were to collide with another vehicle? Then what would be the situation?

At least my piece of crap outside will probably save my life in case of an accident! But then again, I'm not unhappy with my ride. I'm totally in love with my ride.

Kadhine said...

Hey Brian,
Do you have a photo of your ride?
What kind of car/etc is it?
I have a Subaru Forrester - I love her very much. Her name is Subaru-chan (I have no imagination).
