REDTRUNK

Sunday, 12 August 2012

The hills of Western Hungary, after a flood of toxic red sludge from an alumina plant engulfed several towns and burned people through their clothes.

Nope. Not a Photoshop.

The .Gif Friday Post No.227 – Water Nymph, Fashion Ghost & REDЯUMp

[Found here, here and here.]

That REDЯUMp .gif belongs to jaw-dropper Christina Hendricks. We’re told she had a birthday yesterday, May 3rd.

[An aside: Today is the 42nd Anniversary of something that went down on May 4th 1970, and it's eerily similar to what's going down today. Pay attention.]

Bunk’s Second Ride: Pre-Babe Magnet

Thursday, 31 July 2008

Definitely not a babe magnet, but at that age I wasn’t interested and didn’t care.

I remember cruising around a lot in this rockin’ mobile (in my mind, in the basement, in my underwear) with the (imaginary) wind blowing through my flattop, and every station on the (pretend) radio playing either “WipeOut,” “Beechwood4-5789,” or “Witch Doctor.” No commercials.

And I’d completely forgotten about all of that until I slowly cruised through a Russian website.  As soon as I spotted an Original BunkMobile, I jammed my right foot through the cardboard box brake pedal, broke the the toilet plunger dowel that served as an emergency handbrake, and  I spun out on Dead Man’s Curve.  With quick reflexes, I recovered in time to right-click and click “Save Image As.”  No injuries, no damage;  brakes are good, tires fair.

But that was my second ride.  My first ride was a chrome steel tube framed chair that hooked over the back of the front seat of Poppa Strutt’s 1960 Chevy BelAire.

The red-vinyl seat came equipped with a cloth cinch-belt, a little plastic steering wheel with a horn that Pappa Strutts dismantled before I knew that it was supposed to beep, and absolutely nothing to anchor the car seat to the car.

It was designed so that on an emergency stop, the Lil’ Roadmaster Car Seat launches Lil’ Roadmaster into the rearview mirror to prevent Lil’ Roadmaster’s noggin from penetrating the windshield. Pure efficient genius.

Which brings up a good question:  Why aren’t we all dead?
