Weird News Central: World's Best Hummer Sucks Less
Friday, March 26, 2010 17:20 GMTNEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) The worlds best Hummer doesnt horse around in fact, it sucks way less gas than a standard guzzler.
New Yorks CEO Stagecoach, a Hummer H2 converted into a horse-drawn carriage, has been tooling around Central Park as a tongue-in-cheek view of how a more fuel- efficient future may look.
AOL Senior Correspondent Buck Wolf has the inside scoop on what the carriage creator calls the absolute pinnacle of consumerism excess in every way.
The rolling artistic statement actually harkens back to the Great Depression. After the stock market crash of the late 20s, it wasnt uncommon to see horses and donkeys pulling cars, especially in the rural south where there was no money for gas. Such rides were called Hoover carts, after the president.
Of course, even if you dont have to pay for gas, the cost of hay is always going up and pooper-scooper laws are more applicable than ever.
