Dude, Or Douchebag: Parking Jobs ’14

Truth is, I’m as guilty as the next guy.  My car has mirrors, sensors, cameras–everything but a midget parking assistant in my glove box (although I did post the position on Craig’s List)– but even I often fail to park well.  But I’d like to think that my occasional parking offenses don’t have much affect others.  Not like this douchebag: Sure, the white line overage is minimal,...

Only In LA: Topless Driving Is Real

It’s no secret that we’re pretty loose here in Southern California.  Men openly love men, women openly love women and on any given day, you’re gonna smell somebody smoking a dube while stuck in traffic.  And recently, we’ve been getting even looser by ripping off our tops and letting it all hang out.

From Dude To Douchebag: 5 Simple Steps

The other day at the Calabasas car wash, while trolling for car candy, I was rendered speechless when this Douchebag drove up: The man sitting next to me, was far less tongue tied, “Blech…that’s the ugliest car I’ve ever seen!”  And, although this car is, without question, incredibly ugly, I wasn’t sure he was entirely accurate.  In fact, it’s NOT the ugliest car I’ve ever seen (see Dear Car...

Freak Of The Week: Mark V Mashup

I know, I know.  You're like: "What's a Mark V?"  "What's a mash up?"  "What the hell goes on out there in California?" Don't panic, you know the Lincoln Continental Mark V– because it's that car that they always use in the 70s movies… the one they always have the pimps driving… the one with the landau roof, spare tire hump, oval opera windows and imitation Rolls Royce grill……………...
