Honey, I don't think your idea: "Just put all the rubbish in the trailer, and, empty it into the bin at work." is going to work.

Boss: "No, no, no! I said load the gold evenly on the floor, then cover it with the feathers to camouflage it!"

Mook: "But it fit so well loading the gold at the nose of the trailer and the feathers in back."

Boss: "No time to change it now, the guards will be here any minute. Drive, drive!"

"Low-ri-der, he's a low rider."

could also be changed to:

"Slow-ri-der, he's a slow rider!"

With acknowledgement to the musical group War.

These struts I just bought from "RockAuto.Com" said they would adjust my ride height and allow me to tow more, B.S.!!! Ripped off again by a cartoon .com website.

"All the parts your car is ever going to need at Rock Auto" (except when you want to tow a 20,000lb trailer with a 4000lb car...

I bet it's that spare tire weighing the trunk down. We should just get rid of it!

Reading the repair order:

"Customer wants skid plates installed under rear bumper and front of trailer. Also, investigate cause of poor fuel mileage."

Mechanic - I know you don't think it's a problem Sir, but it needs to be fixed at a cost of around a thousand dollars..

Customer - eh.. I guess we'll see what we can scrape up..
