It Happened Again

Last Friday, walking through the parking lot of the downtown Trader Joe's/CVS/FedEx Kinkos, I saw a white Mercedes Benz with a Woodstock Pizza delivery sign on top. Whoah. It was only about a month ago that I saw a black Mercedes with a Dominoes sign on top - I actually saw this car twice in Capitola. The last time, the kid driving it was blasting Gun n' Roses. It was kinda surreal...

But a Woodstock Pizza sign on a white Mercedes. Wow. It all sounds like a bad joke, "you know we're in a Depression when..."

For some reason, I can't help but picture one of the opening scenes in Borat, where his car is being towed by a donkey. Now, that'll be a sure sign of the apolacypse in America: donkey delivered pizza. mmmmm.....delicious.

Parent with car, kid got a job for spending $$$.

Outside of California, it's still not too unusual to see SUVs with pizza delivery signs, though it's still a little mind bending for me. Pizza delivery barely covers the expense when you drive something thrifty; there's no way these SUV drivers are making any money with it.

Or drop by the recycling place and count the late model minivans and trucks hauling big bags of bottles and cans.
