the Smart (ass) car

Some asshole in a “Smart” car cut me off the other night.  I would have been pissed if it wasn’t just so fucking ridiculous.  I mean how do you do that?  What kind of person buys a Smart car AND drives like a jackass??  Wait, hang on, it may actually make sense.  Fact time:

1) They aren’t that cheap (considering).  With a base price ranging from $11,990 to $16,990 depending on the model, this car’s demographic is not exactly going to overlap with that of real “environmentalists”.  It’s more of a second car for someone that is to “Smart” to buy gas every four seconds.  Which brings me to my next point.

2) According to the “About Us” portion of the companies website, the Smart car “has become the ‘it’ car in many countries throughout the world.”  Can we say “status symbol”?  I guess I’d rather have the stay-at-home moms driving those things to Whole Foods than a Suburban.  This way when they crash trying to talk on the phone, paint their nails, fuck with the iPod, and look in the mirror while driving, they’ll only rid the world of themselves.

3) It’s German
