After the harrowing ride down the mountain, involving three complete 360 end swaps and passing over the bull moose in the road, Miss Crotchet checks to see if the school band members are all right.

It's kind of like marriage. Some people need to get loaded before they get hitched and others get loaded after they get hitched.

Lawyer to Judge:

Your Honor, clearly U-Haul is liable for the resulting massive 10-car pile-up on Interstate 80 as they most certainly did not clarify these so-called 'limitations' of trailer use in a language my client 'The esteemed Bubba Jones' could understand.

Just think if they did a multiple of 10 of these?

The energy you could save and also what if you generated electricity with all the idling engines.

A lost scene from "Crocodile Hunter".

"You have to be very quiet as to not to spook the native animals here…. OH, OH, looky here, ……Here we stumbled across on Interstate 94, a 1998 Chevrolet with a fifth wheel mating a 1999 GMC U-Haul. This is Amazing,….. a rare site indeed."

Said in a Steve Irwin voice…… or Elmer Fudd
