What would Freud say about the fact that Novak drives a BLACK CORVETTE? LOL
Edited on Wed Jul-23-08 01:22 PM by wndycty
Am I the only one to get an extra kick out of this?

-snip-
Syndicated columnist Robert D. Novak was cited by police after he hit a pedestrian with his black Corvette in downtown Washington, D.C., on Wednesday morning.

ON EDIT: Judging by some of the replies many DUers either have not heard the joke that a Corvette is a man's way to compensate for his lack of "size" or they have and the just haven't and don't think its funny. I dunno.

17. I thought the same thing. He's awfully old for a middle-age "crisis".

3. "Sometimes a cigar is only a cigar."
Freud was always quick to exempt himself and people who resembled himself from the worst of his theories.

The rest of us, however, can have lots of fun with it.

4. I guess you are ...
why don't you explain in excruciatingly painful detail the Freudian aspect of Novak driving a black Corvette.

11. I dated someone for years who drove a gold Corvette.
Would Freud give any significance to that?

5. the arrogant prick seems to have KNOWN he hit the guy....
Finally, Bono said, Novak put his head out the window of his car and motioned him over. Bono said he told him that you can't hit a pedestrian and just drive away. He quoted Novak as responding: I didnt see him there.

not: "I didn't realize I hit somebody"...more like "I didn't see him there and that's why I hit him."

...why stop, asshole...you could've taken the guy on his bike out with your 'vette, too...

7. I dunno. If Freud is like me, he'd say "Nice car, asshole" and mean all of it.

10. Seems to me that if someone wants a decent American sportscar
they have roughly two choices: the Corvette and the Viper. I'd definitely choose the Corvette. If it was the Z06, that's really close to supercar territory.

Yeah, maybe Novak was overcompensating, or maybe he just digs cars. Freud would probably find that out, first.

12. What WOULD he say? Enlighten us. Unless it's sexist.
Hmmmmmm?

I detest Novak, but quit with the shit.

Let's talk about how he tried to leave the scene of an accident. Not about what Freud would say about his driving a Corvette.

18. I'd love to have a 'Vette, if I could afford one.
I wouldn't get a black one, but the 'Vette is an historic American sports car.
