Couple days ago, now, actually:

A Honda Pilot with no working tail lights, bearing an expired dealer plate from Alabama.

:whatever:

You might get pulled over, there.

One of the used car dealers here got busted a week or so ago for selling temporary tags to basically anyone willing to put up $150. He sold a lot. I'm afraid there's a lot of that going on too. There used to be a guy down the street from me that had a temporary tag for like a year, then he had a dealer tag for a while.
It's symbolic of our struggle against reality.

From the Unintentionally Funny files, this is killing me:

Big Japan Pro Wrestling

Insanity gore-heavy hyper-macho wrestling, featuring, for instance, real barbed wire.  Rude.

But in fine Japanese fashion, it suffers in translation.

It has divisions such as Deathmatch BJ, which sounds like a slightly different sport.

And it has wrestlers such as

Abdullah the Butcher
Mad Man Pondo
Homicide
Necro Butcher
Trent Acid
Wifebeater
Justice Pain
Nate Hatred


but also

John Zandig
Mr. Pogo
Mike Samples
Craig


If you go to the bottom of John Zandig's page, it lists a lot of other wrestlers, and it just keeps on giving.

There was a tag team called 2 Girls, 1 Cup whose members were Beef Wellington and Greg Excellent.

And another one called The Best Around.  I think I can guess what their theme music was.

Other tag teams:

Extreme Fahrenheit (Heartbreaker and Mr. Motion)
Juicy Product
Naptown Dragons  --  We're takin' you to Naptown! (I assume)


Anyway.  I don't want to see them wrestle, but I appreciate the pageantry.

Unintentional? I dunno, that wrestling world is full of imagination, some rich, some ridiculous, some offensive, and on and on.

I'm surprised it doesn't go further back in Japanese history. I used to pay a little attention to wrestling back in the early seventies, and I thought wrestlers went on world tours, like to Japan.

Re: the original Abdullah:
Quote from: wikipedia
He initially competed in numerous independent territories in Canada under such various monikers as Pussycat Pickens, Kuroi Jujutsushi (The Black Wizard) and Zelis Amara. However, he ultimately created his gimmick of an evil Arabian sadist; and in a match against Gino Brito[3] (Jack Britton's real-life son), the Abdullah the Butcher character first distinguished himself as one of the world's most feared rule breakers when he broke a chair over Brito's head and then beat him senseless with the leg.
It's symbolic of our struggle against reality.
