The Uber-Official, Highly Accredited, Almost Entirely Accurate Motorhead Mama Stoned Driver’s Test

Ever since pot started wafting it’s way out of High Times and into the mainstream, plenty of people are panicked about the pending stoned driver crisis.  From the chilly highways of Colorado to the swampy streets of Florida, marijuana is enjoying all kinds of loosened restrictions and this has got law enforcement freaked out. And with good reason for with alcohol, you’ve got a breathalyzer.  But with pot,...

Father’s Day Gifts For The Motorhead Dad: Mama’s Top 10

If my own experience means anything, the average Father’s Day is a disaster.  So far, my poor husband has received a finger painted tie (the only neck attire in his wardrobe), a tie dyed t-shirt (let’s just say he’s not a Phish fan) and an ashtray (as he was trying to quit smoking).  Father’s Day is inevitably a bust.  But it doesn’t have to be, because Mama is...

10 Reasons To Love Supercar Sunday

As the self-appointed high priestess of this radical religion, I feel that it is my divine duty to pronounce the following Commandments for this year’s High...

Digital License Plates: Mama’s Top 5

Sure, we have no infrastructure, we're crippled by debt and you could rest a small continent in our economic divide, but we do lots of stuff before your state has even thought of it.  Case in point, the bill that passed in Sacramento this week for a digital license plate program.  According to lawmakers, they'll save at least $20 million in postage...

Come To Jesus: Top 5 Popemobile Alternatives

Last week, Pope Francis took possession of the illustrious 2013 Popemobile.  Manufactured in by Mercedes Benz in Alabama (a whole 'nother type of blasphemy) , this vehicle has the unique distinction of being the ugliest Popemobile ever:   And believe me, people, the competition was tough.  Shortly afterwards, the Pope released a statement urging his disciples to drive "humble" cars (yawn).  He also professed "it hurts me when I see a priest or a nun with the...
