Americans And Their Cars

I wanted to bring this up because I have some opinions about Americans and their cars.
No offence to those Americans who have enormous cars, but I have some problems with these things.

Why do Americans drive ridiculously large cars? And why do American car companies glamorize the giant gas-guzzler? So what if your pickup can tow 600 million pounds? When the hell are you ever going to use that? In fact, if you really think about it, are you ever going to tow more than maybe a beer cooler and a couple of hunting rifles? Unless you either are in the construction industry or you have a very heavy mobile home, YOU DON'T NEED A GIGANTIC PICKUP.
And you with the SUV, how often do you really carry 7 people in your car and a trunk full of stuff at the same time? Maybe you do often, in which case that's fine. But if it's around once a year or less (which it most likely will be), then YOU DON'T NEED AN SUV.
Now as for Hummers, I have one thing to say to you: YOU DON'T NEED A HUMMER, FOR ANY REASON, EVER.

If you legitimately need a large car for your business or you have a family of like 8 that you frequently carry around, than this doesn't apply to you, but if all you use your car for is a 45 minute drive to work and back and to pick up pizza, then GET A FRICKIN' SEDAN, or even better, A SMARTCAR. Or if you want to go extreme, get this.

This post is dedicated to American personalities Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett, Michael Jackson, and Billy Mays, who all died this week. Stop killing off your celebrities, America!
