You otha brothas can't deny...


While driving down 35w the other day I was cut off by a SUV bearing the window sticker www.iwantbigrims.com (see above) That’s right…I want big rims .com. Which brought me to thinking, are rims important enough to want in a way you have to stick a sticker in the back of your car to advertise for? Seriously?
How about iwantamilliondollarsandaplaceonthebeach.com? Or, gimme5extravacationdaysandafreetriptofiji.com?
And what about those spinners? I tell you what; if I’m going to pay five thousand dollars for rims that spin when my car is standing still I want to be able to see those fuckers spin! What good are they when you can’t even see them? I’m not paying thousands of dollars so other people get the chance to see my sweet shiny rims spin. Screw that!
The best is when you see those people deck their 92 Saturn out in sweet after market stuff. It’s like putting a hundred-dollar saddle on a five-dollar horse, it just makes no sense. And those are the kind of people you see that owe tens of thousands of dollars in back child support, driving around in their 1994 Ford Escort with chrome rims and some lame ass spoiler glued to the back of their ghetto cruiser.
Am I missing something here?

How about when people with trucks or two seater sports cars put LCD tvs in to the backs of their headrests? Pretentious a-holes.

My personal pet peeve are people who have massive rust buckets and put a bunch of stereo equipment in it and all you hear is the car rattling and all you see is the rust falling from the underside. And yeah, why does a 92 Saturn need Platinum Spinning rims, a shopping cart like wing, fancy decals, and an exhaust I can crawl up into?

ooooooooh.... is somebody a little jealous of the rolling bling bling? Maybe if you ask real nice you could get one rim for each of the next four holidays! And Santa would probably put some of those neon flashing license plate lights in your stocking this year....

I so want a '71 Gremlin decked out with neon lights on the undercarriage, spinning rims, hydraulics, moster tires and a 17 speaker stereo system. You know you'd be jealous.

Ali: I have a friend who has an LCD in the back of his headrest and during rush hour he plays porn...gotta love him!

Doug: I know that guy, he's friends with my neighbors kids.

Rob: Sho Nuff.

Monica: Thanks!

Libby: You're probably right, Santa probably has the pimped out sleigh. I guess I'm just behind the times!

Blackjack: Only if the Gremlin had a kick ass pair of fuzzy dice hanging from the rear view mirror, then I'd be totally jealous ;)
