    * … an advertising campaign designed to minimize the myth that size 10 humans can’t fit into a size automobile.

    * Mommy? I thought he was the Eggman….

    * Here’s another clue for you all, the Walrus was Paul.

    * The time has come, the Walrus said, to speak of many things. Of Miles per gallon, payment plans, of rebate deals and crash ratings.

    * The new Toyota Oyster

    * Don’t the women all get prettier at closing time?

  5. Hodink says:

    “Look. Global Warming is a worry for those seals who slither and swim in Antarctica. I’m a local, weight-conscious, car-driving, law-abiding, fashionista.”

  6. Mike Holmgren gets a new endorsement deal.

  7. Kenny says:

  10. yetanotherjohn says:

    “An elephant seal wearing traditional Chinese lingerie” … you expect me to top that?

    Oh sure, they can make inexpensive cars, but it takes American marketing genius to figure out that a beautiful woman in traditional Chinese lingerie is going to really sell the car.

    The policeman wearing white gloves performs the traditional Chinese dance indicating he declines the offer of sex from the elephant seal wearing the traditional Chinese lingerie.

    The CEO wants his ugly daughter used in the car campaign. The ad company realizes she is so ugly she will drive people away. Solution: Elephant Seal costume.

    Makes you wonder what their second choice for a mascot was.

    New evidence of dangerous faults with North Korea’s nuclear program surfaced across the border in China.

    What’s really sick is that the picture has started me be interested in traditional Chinese lingerie.

    Car haz bucket seats?

  15. Gollum says:

    Dieter Zetsche’s job prospects had fallen mightily since the whole Chrysler debacle.

  16. physics geek says:

    ::thinking:: That’s it: I’m firing my manager.

    Huh. Victoria’s Secret models just aren’t what they used to be.

    Buy this car and I’ll seal the deal with a kiss.

    Don’t hate me becaues I’m beautiful.

    Some spoiled kimchee caused the weirdest mass hallucination since the one where people thought Jimmy Carter was president. Oh wait, that actually DID happen.

  17. John425 says:

    Seal says: “Swell birthday present everybody, but I was hoping for an SUV!”

  18. Wyatt Earp says:

    1. After Heidi Klum’s career took off, Seal was forced to perform at a few “less-glamorous” gigs.

    2. After a fight with wife Heidi Klum, Seal tries his hand at being a spokesmodel . . . with disastrous results.

  19. Cowboy Blob says:

    Hugh Grant’s automotive liaisons have hit rock bottom.

  20. Scott_T says:

    1) The car stereo only plays one song unfortunately, Seal’s “Tears for a Rose” of course.

    2) I for one shall welcome our lingerie-wearing seal overlords if they can stop global warming.

    3) Hillary!’s true form is revealed as the Hsu fundrasing scandal unfolds.

    4) The remake of “V” featuring seals instead of lizardmen just didn’t have the same menacing tone as the original.

  26. John425 says:

    Seal says: You like me! You REALLY, REALLY like me!!!

  27. Bithead says:

    * In China, too, Sex Sells. Should we be concerned?

  28. Garrison Keillor has started moonlighting?

  29. Detailing — Another job Americans won’t do.

  30. Cowboy Blob says:

    Selling diabetes testing supplies not being the lucrative job he’d expected, Wilford turned to car show modeling.
