Default Mattress on the highway

A Person Ran Over A Mattress On The
Highway And Decided Not To Worry And
Kept Driving.
The Ensuing Jumble Finally Whipped
Around Enough to Tear A Hole In The
Fuel Tank.
The Subsequent Lack Of Fuel Is What
Finally Brought The Vehicle To It's Knees.
The Car Still Managed To Drive 30 More
Miles With A 60 Pound Tangle of Stuff
Wrapped Around The Driveshaft.
It Was Towed To A Dealership And They
Complained That The Vehicle Had A
"Sort Of Shimmy" When It Was Driven
At High Speeds.
Below Are The Photo's Of What They
Found At The Dealership.
The Last Photo Is By Far The Best.
"Sort Of A Shimmy", I'll Bet It Did!



Is This Just The Best Or What.
They Still Can't Believe Their Eyes.
And Still Wondering How To Remove It.

When I run something or someone over, I usually look in the mirror to make sure it/he/she came out the other side and I'm not dragging evidence. WTF

I have seen that before. Never does it say if it was a woman or old person driving. My guess is it was a woman.

I know the sound of zip ties to the drive shaft I couldn't imagine how loud that had to be

When I got it, it said "Blond", so I cleaned it up to keep from offending anyone.
I used to be blond, now just gray.
I can't imagine not stopping to see why it "shimmied", that had to make one helluva noise.

Bolt cutters? One snip at a time. I hope they have a tub to put all the metal pieces in.

Ford's next sale slogan. "It can climb any mountain, it can cross any river, it can pull a heavy load, but it can't run over a mattress."
