It seems all I can do is post lyrics these days.

How I feel about it all: geekyParody
Soundtrack: Capitol Steps - God Bless My SUV
Well, I've heard that other countries are down on the US,
a land of mass consumption, our lives filled with excess.
But my daddy wasn't fightin' on Normandy that day
For the right to drive a Hyundai--I refuse to live that way!

...and I'm proud to be an American, who gets just 5 MPG.
Though I live alone, the car I own can seat a hundred three,
And I'll gladly park so close to you, when you pull out you can't see.
No, I'll never trade my Escalade...God bless my SUV!

Well, the road may have congestion, but hey, I'll get there alive,
so don't pester me with questions, like "What Would Gandhi Drive"?
And you won't catch me in Starbucks if I need a drink or snack;
when I bought this ship, she came equipped with a Starbucks in the back.

...and I'm proud to be an American, with a car that fits my rear.
The cash I put down could have fed a town in Somalia for a year;
I'd gladly go and fight Saddam; he'd lose a war with me.
You'll be stuck in mud when he sends his SCUD, but not my SUV!



I think SUVs are the Devil's Own Evil. If you own one, I'm unapologetic. SUV owners on my flist, I loff you, but but I wish your car would die die die. *see icon for my dream car*

My personal favourite is that "What Would Jesus Drive?" campaign. I sort of want to ask all the SUV-driving fundies around here what they think of that question.

Myself, I like to think that he'd drive a Saturn - fair wages for employees, the employees have some ownership in the company, no nasty haggling at the dealership, and oooh, that gas mileage!

I think that he'd probably take the bus. Public transportation seems more his style.

Yes, but that would be "How Would Jesus Get From Place To Place?" Unless he's the bus driver.

Which means that the answer to WWJDrive? is "He wouldn't!"

You are SO a New Englander. *giggles*

Any self respecting Southerner will tell you that despite Jesus's call to forsake material possessions, he didn't mean the land and your horse (now your car/truck). Only thing that's worth something always.

... no, we never got over it.

You get your strength from this red earth of Tara, Scarlett patchfire. You're a part of it and it's part of you...

*sigh* As God is my witness, I'll never be hungry again!

I'll take a 1966 bus or bug. I'd probably rather have the bus, though, just so I can carry around shovels and rakes and implements of destruction. [/gratuitous Arlo Guthrie reference]

You too! The Steps have this song on their latest, Between Iraq and a Hard Place *adds to wishlist*

We saw the steps at Sanders Theater a few months ago, when that "album" (can we call them that anymore?) first came out, I think. Terrific show. They do show up in Cambridge on a fairly regular basis, I think.
