Yesterday, a bunch of you started comment threads with several hilarious puns and jokes. It was so good that multiple Autopian staff nominated an entire thread for a Thread Of The Day. Today, the jokes are continuing, which is fine because it’s a great way to slide into the weekend.
First, we have to give a huge thanks to Vitaly for giving Jason a sweet George Barris booklet about customizing fins and taillights. What a fun piece of material! Of course, this immediately led to multiple jokes, like this winner from Canopysaurus:
Does this count as autoerotica for Jason?
CatMan also got a smile from me:
I have visions of Torch thumbing thru this at night in his bed with the covers pulled over his head and a flashlight. I mean he must be as excited as a 60’s teenager who stumbles across his dad’s playboy collection.
Next, we have some puns in an unexpected place. In Thomas’ piece about Nissan accidentally scaring people with poorly-timed marketing during an anthrax panic, a few of you started another pun thread:
DeLorean tried to do the same thing one time, but the contents of the package actually had powder.
It certainly wasn’t out of line.
Doesn’t pass the sniff test.
Mark Tucker, a regular source of solid jokes, laid down one of his own:
Is this what they call “viral marketing”?
Finally, we have David’s Tales From The Slack, where he handed out his business card at Pebble Beach, then started getting calls from people who think he’s an escort of some kind. Patrick George wins that entire comment section:
We’re always experimenting with innovative new revenue streams here at The Autopian!
That gets me thinking, maybe we really should start an OnlyVans… Have a great weekend, everyone!
