Oh jeez. What a monstrosity. Someone needs to find gainful work. I liked this bit at the end of the piece:

Jason, I usually like the stuff you write and it’s mostly smart and funny. But lose the profanity. It doesn’t add a single bit of humor, and it’s no longer shocking or edgy. It’s just a crutch for inadequate writing. You’re much better than that.

I’m not THAT much better than that, let’s be honest.

Jalopnik sees it the same way I do.


This $2 Million Tank-SUV With Horrific Build Quality Is the Worst Car at the New York Auto Show

Hey, rich idiots! Do you secretly crave the lumbering, workhorse-like driving style of a Ford F-550 Super Duty, but don’t ever want to do any actual work, and really want to let everyone around you know what a colossal, pampered dip**** you are without even having to open your vape-smoke and Cristal-filled mouth?
My fine dip****s, are you ever in luck: for only $2.2 million dollars you can have it all, if by “all” we’re talking about the ugly, hulking mountain of overpriced trash-garbage that is the Karlmann King.

The 4X4 G wagons are getting pretty common around my hood. Just passed a Brabus 800: 789 hp and 737 lb-ft!

The real G-wagons are the simple ones they originally built decades ago.
Not today's pimped-out monstrosities for idiots that want to spend Rolls-Royce money on an SUV!

Just passed a Brabus 800, because that driver let you or did not want a $4500.00 service charge after a half mile dash.
