Are You a Driving Dick?

Do you make other drivers’ lives miserable and dangerous? Take this test and find out.

Do you:

1) Do you occasionally run red lights? (2 points)

2) Do you routinely run red lights? (4 points)

3) Bonus points for question 2). Give yourself (2 extra points) for every car that run the red light before you? For example, if 4 cars run the red light before you do, then you get 4 * 2 = 8 points.

4) Do you routinely go 10 mph above the speed limit? (1 point)

5) Do you routinely go 20 mph above the speed limit? (3 points)

6) Do you routinely go 30 mph, or more, above the speed limit? (If yes, please stop taking the test. There’s no point to it. Paul’s Flying Squirrel Squadron is already on its way to have a “chat” with you. Best notify your next of kin to stay inside until its over.)

7) Park in handicapped parking when you are totally healthy, just because you won’t be there long? (1 points)

8) Back out of your parking spot without looking, because who could have possibly expected other cars to be in a fast-food restaurant’s parking lot? (1 point)

9) Text while driving? (2 points)

10) Not signal when turning? (1 point)

11) Not signal when changing lanes? (1 point)

12) Not a point observation but, OMG, did you not get the “blinker package when you bought the car?

13) For every lane changed above 1. (1 point) For example, you changed 3 lanes above 1 on a freeway. You get 3 – 1 = 2 points.

14) Slow do to 35 mph before exiting the freeway. (1 point)

15) Honk at other drivers? (1 point) Clarification, this only applies to road rage, not when you’re warning the other car that had you in its blind spot.

16) A car is patiently waiting at an intersection for a break in the traffic. You pull up enough to block that driver’s view. (1 point)

17) Sell lutefisk? (2 points) Sorry, this really isn’t a car question. I just really hate the food.

18) Pass by the menu at the drive-through lane, then take your time to decide at the to-go window?

19) Does your car spew great clouds of smog? (2 points)

20) Cut people off? (3 points)

21) Give others the finger? (1)

************************************************************************

What does your total score mean?

0 points: You are in no way a driving dick. In fact, you will go straight to Heaven when you die.

1-8 points: It’s still okay for you to drive without supervision. Think about your dickish traits and how you can overcome them.

9-16 points: Cause for alarm. You may still drive unattended. You will, however, be under constant surveillance.

17-24 points: You’re awful. You must post a bond before you hit the road. The bond will be forfeited to your surrounding motorists

25-32: You’re nearly erect. You must post a double bond before driving. You must also be accompanied by a guard who will taze you everytime you earn another point. (After he makes you pull over, of course.)

33+: You throbbing dick! You will not be allowed to drive at all. You will be fitted with an ankle device that will incinerate your foot if you do . A drone strike will obliterate you once you step outside.

The Travel Grouch’s Guide To Not Sucky Vacationing

Dear Travel Grouch,SelfieGrandCanyon2-

Vacationing is getting less and less pleasant every year. While I used to be able to peacefully admire the scenery, now I can’t even get to the scenic point because of hordes of people taking one selfie after another. They don’t even look at scenery until they get home and look at it on their iPad thingy. And They never leave. Never. What can I do? I want to see nature. Please help me with this. Other tips will be appreciated. Thank you.

– Amos Keeto

Dear Mr. Keeto,

I feel your pain. Why just last summer I had to . . . Whoops, way too public a forum. Deep breath. Ahh. I’m okay now. Here, dear friend, are some helpful hints.

1) Contact Paul’s Flying Squirrel Squadron before going on vacation. They will visit you on your trip and say many kind, encouraging words to you. If asked, they will also serenade you at night. Listen carefully, they have tiny voices. They will even have “chats” with the offending tourists. Best to stay inside until the “chats” are over.

2) Do you have a sonic obliterator? If not, you really should get one. They get rid of the selfie takers quite nicely. You’ll be able to walk up to the scenic outlook. You’ll be happy. You might even find yourselves smiling and isn’t that what vacations are all about?

3) Does the offensive line of a top-ten football team owe you a favor? If so, get it to run a flying wedge in front of you all the way to the railing. Sure, this will knock the selfie takers into the canyon far below, but their screams will be heard only for a moment.

4) The overriding virtue of tips 3) and 4) is that the bodies will be impossible to find or nearly so.

5) Don’t be so busy offing selfie takers that you forget to throw away your litter. No one likes a scofflaw.

6) For some reason, people think that if you can’t understand their language, you can’t hear them. It’s okay to place a glass dome over them and suck out all the air with a giant pump until they stop talking. Just make sure you do this when others aren’t looking.

7) It’s not okay, however, to assume that only foreigners talk so loud that they need the glass dome treat. Your fellow countrymen often shout when they travel abroad. And let me tell you, people of every nation have glass domes and giant pumps.

8) Employees in American visitor centers and toll booths do not carry sonic obliterators. This means drivers can safely engage them in conversations that make a reading of War and Peace go by quickly. I blame budget cutbacks for this. You’ll have to buy your own sonic obliterator. I cannot stress enough the need for proper planning.

Happy traveling.

The end of Nazi Germany is near. Hitler’s bunker is about to be attacked by flying squirrels. He reacts.
