Knowing the diseases these animals carry, why would you want to drive your family through a park filled with them? I don't like monkeys. I do like apes, though.
Having said that, it looks just like a night in Detroit. 1 car per hundred little thieves.

Yea, really. The spirit of Detroit is essential if you want to understand America. At least the America that I believe was once great.

Check out the new Chrysler commercials for a perfect counterpoint to those who miss the point about the motor city.

I was born and raised in detroit. The current Chrysler commercials make it into Thug City.

That will bring lots of families and biusiness.

Or will we start to develop the university of RappyThuggo?

The commercials play well because it appeals to the demographic in and around Detroit. We can want Old Detroit to come back, but it's ain't comin'...

And we all can point to the '67 riots I'm guessing...

Anyways... we should get back to the monkeys. How many of us would have wanted to get that car instead of the monkeys? And how many of us would still want it after the monkeys got it?

I thought it was a diesel. To me it looked like the left badge was "e300" and something on the right that could have been "turbodiesel" -- I thought it was a w210 diesel wagon. Is my monitor too small?

I was surprised they were able to take off the side mirror. Did they use any tools?
