a small dose of reality

keeping it semi real, promoting conservatives, taking potshots at fools, democrats other than Obama, liberals, the left, know it alls, the dnc, etc., reviews of models, pundits and blogs

I won't insult your intelligence by suggesting that you really believe what you just said.

Toyota Chief Overshoots Congressional Hearings by 150 Miles

@ 09:55 PM (58 months, 26 days ago)

 

The reputation of the Toyota Motors Corp. received another black eye today as the president of the embattled company missed his scheduled appearance at Congressional hearings after he overshot Washington, D.C. by 150 miles.  Toyota president Akio Toyoda said he was having difficulties with the brakes on his 2010 Toyota Prius, which finally came to rest after crashing into a blacksmith’s shop in Colonial Williamsburg.  In a brief statement to reporters, Mr. Toyoda said, “I knew I should’ve driven my Chevy today.”

In yet another embarrassment, Mr. Toyoda, the grandson of the carmaker’s founder, realized for the first time that his family’s name is spelled differently from the company’s.  Mr. Toyoda said that all members of the Toyoda family would be immediately recalled to fix the spelling error.

Introducing the Hot New Social Network, PhoneBook

@ 01:17 PM (59 months, 7 days ago)

 

A new social network is about to alter the playing field of the social media world, and it’s called PhoneBook.  According to its creators, who invented the network in their dorm room at Berkeley, PhoneBook is the game-changer that will leave Facebook, Twitter and even the much anticipated Google Buzz in a cloud of dust.  “With PhoneBook, you have a book that has a list of all your friends in the city, plus everyone else who lives there,” says Danny Fruber, one of PhoneBook’s creators.  “When you want to chat with a friend, you look them up in PhoneBook, and find their unique PhoneBook number,” Fruber explains.  “Then you enter that number into your phone and it connects you directly to them.”

Another breakout utility of PhoneBook allows the user to arrange face-to-face meetings with his or her friends at restaurants, bars, and other “places,” as Fruber calls them.  “You will be sitting right across from your friend and seeing them in 3-D,” he said.  “It’s like Skype, only without the headset.”  PhoneBook will enable friends to play many games as well, such as charades, cards, and a game Fruber believes will be a breakout: Farm.  “In Farm, you have an actual farm where you raise real crops and livestock,” he says.  “It’s hard work, but it’s more fun than Mafia, where you actually get killed.”

Are the Japs trying to avenge their WWII humiliation?  Hoping to reverse a series of public relations setbacks, Toyota today unveiled a new slogan, “Drive a Toyota.  You’ll Never Stop.”  Company spokesman Hiroshi Kyosuke said that the slogan was chosen after the company considered several others, including “Toyota Puts the Pedal to the Metal.  And Keeps it There.”  Mr. Kyosuke said that the company considered, but then abandoned, the slogan, “Toyota.  The Last Car You’ll Ever Drive.”
