Hummer bought by Yugo....
The hummer brand has been bought by Yugo.

You may remember Yugo as the car that lasted 1 month or 100 miles.. whichever comes first.

With the merger... the new name of the Company will be YUMMER.




:shrug: <drumroll>

6. It makes sense...get rid of the spare tire
And instead have a spare Yugo strapped to the undercarriage in case the Hummer breaks down!

9. My Yugo lasted 7 years
my Yugo lasted 7 years and only needed a clutch cable and a window handle in all that time. 40 miles to the gallon.

20. My buddy was a sales manager at a Yugo dealership...
He said on snow-days, when they had to move the cars for the plows, one third of the new Yugos would start, another third would need a jump and the last third weren't going to start no matter WHAT they did to them.

8. The funniest thing I ever saw was that video of a contest
between all commercial (passenger) all terrain vehicles like Jeep, Nissan, the Hummer and others on rough, hilly, muddy and rocky terrain.

The Hummer quickly got stuck, while all others ran around it like jack rabbits. Eventually, a Nissan driver came back, and dragged him out of the gully. With a vehicle 2/3s the size of the hummer.

Seriously, who would want to buy a car named after a blow job?

11. Another fun combination
Renault Clio & the Ford Taurus.

Decorum prevents me from mentioning the punch line.

17. keep trying
You're only off by more letters than all the words combined.

But I'm hoping you have a breakthrough.

Kinda like cracking the WW2 German Enigma code. you're got to TRY HARDER.

14. How appropriate. Yugo. Hummers exemplify the Bush years.
