Hummers -- What's the point?????
Advertisements [?]
Before people jump to conclusions, I'm dead serious.

I was out driving today and I literally saw 6 or 7 Hummers. I really want to know -- what's the point? I've always driven smaller cars -- even when I could afford something bigger. I like being able to maneuver them, fit into smaller spots, and get decent gas mileage.

Those things are just ridiculous to look at -- they are audacious and overbearing. So someone, please give me a sense as to why someone would think they needed something like that.
