    OK so it's not a Honda. Thought you folks might be up for a laugh anyway
    besides all these serious discussions, especially all our Canadian friends
    who are freezing their butts off now ;)

  2. (O_O) (>_<) Oh, man.. that's just wrong..... Folks, there's a reason
    you were taught about angles in high school.

    1) WTF were you boys thinking?!
    2) Gimme a '69 Buick Wildcat any day! (All metal, no plastic! The truck
    woulda pulled the tranny out before the bumper would come off.)

    Perhaps so, but if you look carefully you'll see that they pulled off
    the actual steel bumper, not only the plastic bumper cover.

    It's hard to see from the camera angle, but couldn't these nice boys
    just have driven the car forward and out of the snow?

    Scary thing is that these guys may end up with careers at the local
    quick lube place.

  4. AHH! I see now... I was laughing too hard to see that the first time
    through. Point taken.
    Or better still.... Pulled it the other direction in the first place.
    AH! But hindsight is 20/20 they say.
    Or financial consultants for the next President.

    Honestly, how stupid can people be? First, that car could have been easily
    pushed out of the snow bank, why would you try to pull it backwards?
    Second, did they actually hook it up to the BUMPER?

  8. beats me... all I know is its DAMN funny to laugh at other people's lack
    of forethought. (And remember, we've all done stupid stuff in our day.
    Just not as spectacular or with a video camera nearby.)
