Freak Of The Week: Funky Jungle Bus

Warning: this post is likely to aggravate symptoms of VW van-envy, modern-American malaise or general dropout, bar-centric desires.

I have a joke with one of my friends that my Out Of Office reply should be “If you’re looking for an affordable car, just buy the Kia Soul. You’re welcome.” I swear.
