That’s not a FrankenCar, that’s a redneck abomination!

Also, I’m just waiting for Sarge to see my Limerick...
Actually, I think that car denotes a high degree of imagination...

... of the sort that H.P. Lovecraft was so well equipped with.

What, you guys don't like Vern's Corvette?

(it says "Vern's" along the left edge of the camper shell, and the tailgate says "Corvette". I have no idea what the other parts of the car originally were parts of, but I think there are at least four other "donor" vehicles.)

(Of course, one could note that I put the picture in a "Bad Jokes" thread...)

Hey Glytch, you've occasionally referred to a car as the Frankenstratus...

That's what you need, when you make a Trader Joe's run; lots of haul-away space to work with...


If you're old enough, You might hearken back to Harold & Maude...

Something very neat has happened in my town lately. It borders on San Francisco Bay, and part of the city property is still wetlands and wildlands. There's a city park there, which is home to members of an endangered species - the Western Burrowing Owl.

The owls haven't been doing well in recent decades. A lot of area has been lost to building (e.g. high-tech business parks), land-fill, a big concert arena, and so forth. The growing population of people has endangered the owls... people walking or riding bikes on the area, dogs, populations of feral cats and foxes, all of these have taken a toll on the owl population,

The city's trying to help, with programs to protect the habitat. This has helped, at least somewhat.

The big breakthrough, recently, was from a research team that discovered that the owls are healthy enough, but the stress of all the people around has caused them to be... well, let's say "not very romantic". They haven't been pairing up, mating, and raising families successfully.

The head of the research team proposed a solution... well, an aerosol, really... to counteract the stress. It's a mixture which contains some herbal essential oils that have a relaxing effect, some owl pheromones, a bit of cannabis extract (now that it's legal here), and oxytocin (a neurotransmitter that promotes social and family cohesion).

The team sprayed this stuff all around the "burrowing owl habitat" area over at Shoreline, and in less than a month, there were twelve new mated pairs of burrowing owls busily laying eggs and raising chicks. It was an astounding success.

The lead researcher Dr. Mendez gave a lot of the credit to his grandmother Elena, and now refers to it as "Project Meatball".

(No, he isn't being insulting and disparaging about his grandmother. He's simply giving credit where credit is due. After all, it was in her traditional Mexican kitchen that he learned how to brew up a pot of really great owl-bonding gas.)

(Dave places a bowl of delicious soup into the Pun Jar. Dr Mendez said the recipe was the treasure of his Sierra madre.)

'The Island of Doctor Moreau', unbidden, comes to mind...

btw- A family of Tomatoes is hurrying down the sidewalk.

Dad, in his frustration, turns and squashes one of the kids and says

"Ketch·up!"
