A friend of mine was doing some research and found a new Hummer ad in Cigar Afficianado magazine.

Here's the headline for the ad:

"Excessive.
In a Rome at the height of its power sort of way."

That's truly sick. It makes me want to puke.

Ring in the new millennium in our Hummer Stretch. It’s like your own 14 passenger bomb shelter on wheels.

I found the ad in question but I don't know how to post a picture so here's the link:

http://www.modernista.com/hummer.html

Click on the one in the upper right corner. It's clearly the most offensive thing I've seen in a while.

i see no place for these things on the road. i drive a 1988 Toyota Corolla named the Tank. it'll crush one of these mothers. i once crashed into a bus, and the bus was more damaged. long live the Tank! my passion against these Hummers is not as great as yours, but yes, this is pretty fucking ridiculous.

I had an '80 Toyotal Celica that got rearended by a Mercedes G wagon once. The Toyota fared better than the Mercedes. Long live those tanks, indeed! I hate Hummers but then again I hate all SUVs. At least I'm consistent.

Hey, how'd you get that photo in there? Thanks.

there might be an easier way to do this, i dunno, but i just right-clicked on the image, scrolled down to "Properties," copyed the URL, pasted it in this text box, then clicked on the "Img" button above.

hmm, does that make sense? HTML stuff. i'm not really familiar with it.

That totally made sense, except that my Mac mouse only has one button to click. But thanks - I think I can figure it out in the future.

You can figure it out I'm sure. Macs are pretty easy but they can be finicky at times. I have friends that record all sorts of stuff and play with it on their Macs. I forget the name of the program that they use (it was just on the tip of my tongue) but they seem to really like it.

Good luck!

I guess the obvious comparison would be:

the height of Rome where inbreeding, debauchery, blood-sports, and lead poisoning were routine! You too can be just like the Emperors of old as you assassinate everything around you in a mad paranoid rush! Consume, consume, consume, but don't forget the Fat Blockers (our version of the vomitorium) so you don't get fat from all the food you waste!

Our current society was based on Roman ideals and it look like those same ideals will be what brings it down. Yay! Where are the invading hordes of barbarians when you need 'em?
