(Em's Oregon Trail reference totally killed me!)

UAW leaders express concern over GM's new "You can do it. We can help." ad slogan.
Get outta my grill or I'll pop a cap in you like them buffalo that came steppin.
Make that 1822s...
"Harrison has combined the legendary off-road vehicle with ‘Wild West’ wooden wheels to create a sculpture that is a mixture of art, engineering and motoring. For Harrison, the crux of the ‘Hummer’ is formed by both its ‘being’ and its afterlife."
Come on... the guy took a real off-the-lot production car and merely got a machine shop to make some hub adapters so that real wagon wheels (Amazon: www.amazon.com/Amish-Handcrafted-Authentic-Decorative-Hickory/dp/B0016AJ40A/ref=sr_1_17?ie=UTF8&s=miscellaneous&qid=1224795475&sr=8-17) would temporarily bolt on the hubs for the show. That is a "sculpture" worthy of exhibit to the masses as serious art? It's a bit funny, I will admit, but in a farmshow (www.farmshow.com) kind of way. Actually, no, it's nt even up to their standards. Calling oneself a "sculptor" for such a project really stretched credulity a bit.
In 500 years will our descendants be able to see this alongside "the Elgin Marbles" in the British Museum? Ummmmm... maybe not.
Straight talk from Sid.
