Here comes the next thing we all must be OUTRAGED! about.
Why Pickup Trucks Keep Getting Bigger and Bigger
Is it a natural progression? Or are we compensating for something?
Okay, I’m gonna go waaaay out on a limb here before I’ve even read the damned article—which, come to think of it, I ain’t gonna—and guess that the author’s premise is that it HAS to be the latter. I’m basing that on the assumption that it’s a piece posted by a Mark-1 Mod-0 liberal outlet, and the author of it is a weedy little journo-excrescence who’s doing more than just a little “compensating” himself by attacking and insulting those cretinous Neantherdal throwbacks who, y’know, like pickup trucks. Which of course ought to be banned, every last one of ’em.
Next, I’m gonna go even further out on said limb by speculating that pickups are getting bigger because A) the pickup people like ’em that way and will therefore be more willing to consider buying one, and B) pickups, by their very nature, are more useful for the purpose they’re built for—ie, hauling objects, people, or critters from point A to point B—when they’re bigger, tougher, and more powerful.
Okay, I just scrolled down and read the last two paragraphs, which are an endorsement of “electric pickups” and the possibility that they might lead to more diminutive—and hopefully more emasculated—pickups some fine, frabjous day. So it would seem that the prescient wisdom of my snap decision to save myself some trifling irritation by not bothering to read all of this twipe has been confirmed, along with my assumptions about both outlet and author.
