Highway shark.

Do you know what this means? Isn't it clear? The sharks have found a way to invade the land by inventing the aquarium-suit, equipping it with wheels and Self-Driving technology, and will shortly put their plan for continental domination in motion.

I for one salute our new shark overloads and want them to know how useful I can be in bringing human resistance to their rule to submission.

Before I clicked, I heard in my head that goddamn earworm of a song. Naturally the poster of the video beat me to it.

Then there’s the R&B remix….

Class Chondrichthyes bent on world domination. Already control Chatham, MA.

Well, that's pretty darned cool.

well - they have to get to the lab somehow.

This -- "Ron Johnson, Senator from Wisconsin, by way of Moscow" -- is as batshit crazy and as much conspiratorial derangement as anything from QAnon, and far more damaging since it's mainstream, but because it's on a corporate outlet, it doesn't count:


Everything is racist AND if you disagree with the left's lies - you're a Russian.

I thought it was The Donald's pet. Who else would be dumb enough to install a window in a tank for the benefit of a mindless shark?

Companion for the shark irritates the gadfly.

As far as cool animals on trucks, this is pretty much the pinnacle. It beats watching poultry humping each other.

Related, I understand that Great White Sharks cannot be put in aquariums. They die no matter what you do. No one is sure why.

So BFTPFCP doesn't know that both Joy Reid and Glenn Greenwald are leftists but QAnon is not? That makes it impossible to agree with anything here including Ron Johnson's baseless conspiracies which originated from Russian sources attempting to get Trump elected.

BTW, this information about Russian involvement was contained in a document generated by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence under Trump as required by Donald's executive order but which was just published for all to see.

Sharks have to constantly move through the water to take on oxygen. Hence the airiators. Imimagine the windows are for the driver to proceed to the intended destination or the landfill.

Oh fuck. I'm gonna have that song in my head all night.

Very good.

Now, list just the first two or three, I assume, most influential, actions Russia undertook in their endeavors to elect President Trump.

Then prove those actions were to elect a candidate, and not sow mischief, and cause citizens to doubt the integrity of election.

You can also explain how that differs from dozens of other nations.

I also note that not a single person attached to President Trump, his campaign, or transition team was ever claimed to be involved. In fact no United States Citizen was ever accused.

This reminds me of Kurt Busiek's Astro City #2, possibly the best story ever written about what a reporter *should* be, and one we see gainsaid every day by those calling themselves reporters now.

@Andrew

"Sharks have to constantly move through the water to take on oxygen."

Actually, that's not exactly true. Sharks are actually negatively buoyant, they're one of the few fishes that are. Most sharks must keep moving because if they stop moving they sink, which in most of the pelagic environments they inhabit would cause them to go all the way to the bottom (aka "crush" depth). If you've ever been to a big aquarium with sharks where depth is not a problem you will see sharks on the bottom motionless and forcing water manually through their gills all the time.

Sharks don't need to keep moving to breath, they need to keep moving so they don't sink.

Back when I drove lots of miles for work, 25k+ per year, I saw many a strange thing along the road. Never saw anything like that. Cool.

OK, where's the damned fish? All I saw was a container on a trailer towed by a truck. Could have anything in it, chocolate sauce, for example. Or nothing. Besides, the tank is too small to keep a sizeable shark alive.

Gawd, I HATE TikTok. The tokoids choose the most obnoxious "music" imaginable to accompany their feeble offerings, and there's no obvious way to mute the damned vids until they're already spewing their mind-rot at 160 decibels.

Wince said...

Oooh it's a killing machine
It's got everything
Like a driving power big fat tires
And everything

I love it and I need it
I bleed it
Yeah it's a wild hurricane
Alright hold tight

I'm a Highway Shark!

Hmm. My (larger) motorcycle is often called a "shark nose". Wonder if they would have waved to each other.
