Guns & gas


The good people at Max Motors in Butler, Missouri, USA have come up with a great new way to get the cars moving off the lot. Until the end of May, 2008, with every purchase you get a free handgun or a $250.00 gas card. Well, yee-hah! Rip open the mattress, Martha. We’s us gunna buy us a car and gits us ourn very own handgun too! Yee-hah! So with one purchase you get the weapon and the getaway car. Excellent.

Okay, so that’s probably not the actual premise behind this whole deal, but the optics are bad no matter how you look at it. Our friends to the south (the United States) already have an issue with their citizens blowing each other away at an alarming rate (over 17,000 murders in 2007 – not all by handgun, but still) so it strikes me as being a little odd that anyone would want to get more weapons out there. I suppose you could use the old excuse that they’re for home defense, and maybe in Butler, Missouri that’s true, but I don’t buy it.

The General manager of Max Motors, Walter Moore (probably not related to Michael Moore) says that although a promotion such as this would cause all sorts of problems in a lot of places, it won’t in Butler where they, “all believe in God, guts and guns.” I’m wondering which God this is since as usual I just can’t see that if Jesus were walking around today that He would be packing heat. You never know though, I guess.

Anyway… Humouroceros
