Remember at last year’s Los Angeles Pan-Galactic Automobiles Show, when Autopian researchers conclusively proved you could cram a metric nutsload of delicious, pinktabulous, chewy shrimp into a huge wheelbarrow? Remember how scores of people came by to indulge in the shrimpy glory, and had their lives changed for the vastly better with every juicy, shrimptabulous mouthful? If you couldn’t make it, remember how the yawning emptiness felt? Remember that chasm inside you that you knew could only be filled with the one-two punch of shrimp and the companionship of fellow Autopians? Sure you do.
Well, fantastic news: it’s happening again, for the first time! This Thursday, at 1:30 pm in the dazzling Autopian Oasis at the LA Auto show, the Shrimpbarrow will return, and it’ll be joined by sliders and mac and cheese orbs and chicken skewers and fruit cups other delights, including the boundless love of your favorite Autopians, who will be there, just for you!
There may also be a special pastry-related surprise I’m not certain will actually happen, so I can’t tell you about it, but if it does, boy will I be thrilled.
Just so we're all on the same page, the wheelbarrow full of shrimp is returning to the LA Auto Show. FYI, if you're at the show on Thursday between 1:30 – 2:30 pm come by for sliders, mac and cheese balls, and a wheelbarrow full of shrimp. pic.twitter.com/2t4mjS3Nsc

Now, this is the Media event, open just to those trapped in the cruel grip of the Fourth Estate and, of course, a few select Autopian Members that have been hand-selected to infiltrate the press days. Of course, if you had a good childhood and your parents loved you and you didn’t end up as an automotive journalist, there’s still a way for you to join in some special LA Auto Show Magic!
That way is to come by the Autopian Oasis Friday and meet us and play a few rounds of Autopian Car Trivia and win a t-shirt or perhaps a hug or maybe a stern talking-to from David or an energetic wave from Mercedes, or an eye-roll from Thomas, or a sales pitch from Matt, or a creepy, lingering stare from me! The possibilities are endless!
The important thing is that right now, with all the horror and chaos and misery in the world, there’s still hope. And maybe that hope is a bold, powerful, life-affirming wheelbarrow full of shrimp.
