Last Call- Tryptophan Coma Edition

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving down here in this great expanse of kitsch we call the United States, which means that a lot of us will be on the road, visiting people we wouldn’t normally associate with -i.e. our families.

We here at Hooniverse have a lot to be thankful for- including all of you fine sirs and madams that help to make this place so much fun. Even if you don’t happen to reside under the stars and bars, we want to take the opportunity to say thanks for your support. We couldn’t be doing this without you.

We’ll be taking some time off for the holiday weekend, but may throw up some posts along the way as time allows (remember one of us celebrated Thanksgiving over a month ago) so check in and see.

Happy Turkey Day everybody- Be safe hooning out there, ya’ hear?

  1. Sonofabitch… so I guess I gotta get to work on some content, since all you slacker Americans are taking the rest of the week off to shop, or something like that. Honestly, can't you just have your Thanksgiving on the right day?

    1. if by shop, you mean 'gorge our bodies with turkey and other stuff' then yes… and i started on sunday…. will stop sometime after new years……. thanks.

    2. Let them have their Turkey Day a month late. They can keep it. That just gives us the weekend to race to Jasper. I'm leaving the west end of Edmonton on a bus at 6pm Friday. So if you leave in a car at the same time and take a round-about route through Calgary or something, we'll have ourselves a race!

  2. Does "doing a phat burnout on a dead 'coon, flinging it a good ten or fifteen feet" fall under "be(ing) safe hooning out there"?
    …Well, fine. I'll be safe tomorrow, then. Or today, rather, as it's nearly two in the morning (and I am now heading to bed).
    Enjoy the delicious foodstuffs, y'all.

  3. Ok I'm bored at work so I'm just going to rant a little since I can't post content. I'm sure you don't want to know about me but you can jump over my comments here and read the next one down or what not.
    I started out life without much interest in cars (I know, shocking) or anything to do with the farm I lived on although I did have a bunch of toy cars and a penchant for taking things apart and putting them back together again displaying a decent mechanical aptitude from a young age. Around the time I entered junior high I'd completely forsaken anything mechanical in the pursuit of music (I sing and used to play trumpet). It wasn't untill highschool and getting my drivers licence that I started to develop an interest in cars with my first car being a 1986 Jetta diesel, it didn't drive (engine ran fine) and with some help from my dad I got it running again. I had an unfortunate accident with the Jetta one day, gravel road and a rear right tire blow out sent me into the ditch and over totaling the front end, that was the first German car to try and take my life.

    1. I step'd out of that car into a '93 Pontiac Sunbird LX which I had to replace the head gasket to drive. That Sunbird was an aweful, terrible, disgusting car that I was happy to get out of, it's only saving grace was the manual transmission. I stepped out of the '93 into a '94 GT (actually SE cause they dropped the GT badge for '94) that needed the slave cylinder to get driving again. This Sunbird was so much better only because it had more power and a slightly stiffer suspension. I managed to kill the engine in that car after going through 3 heatercores, overheating it twice. After all that work my dad decided that I should get my late grandmothers '03 Taurus which has become my invisible car. The Taurus is terribly boring dispite being a good car so last year I managed to get my hands on a 1980 Porsche 924 Turbo which is one of the most fun cars I've ever driven.

  4. The Porsche It self was a non-runner when I got it dispite the P.O. dumping a fair bit of money into it to get it running again. So I worked and cleaned and made it into a running car at which point during the test drive (at night) the power cut out around a corner effectively making it the second German car that has tryed to take my life. That is my automotive history up untill the current day.

  5. Now I grew up with Fords so I have a deep seated love for Ford and all the successes it has had in the past and ones comming in the near future. I also think I'm pretty worldly when it comes to the cars that I like and the manufacturers that I will stand behind. Ford, Nissan, Volvo and Hyundai are the tops on my list as it stands right now. Ford you can tell why, Nissan because of their impressive history of creating some of the most amazing racecars I've ever seen, R390 I'm looking at you. Volvo has come up in my books due to a little research and a fuzzy guy who will go unnamed, Just look at the 1800 it's beautiful in both wagon and coupe models and the current crop of cars are starting to look good. Hyundai has taken a different path to becoming a car I wouldn't mind driving due to it's improved quality and the Hyundai Genesis Coupe that shows that Hyundai is commited to producing cars that every one wants not just cheap people.

  6. ………like the last 6 (or is it 7? i loose count) years that i've said "go Lions"……… maybe that's why at my place we drink a lot at Thanksgiving.
    FWIW, I've said "go Lions" for more then that many of years, but it's been a long , LONG time since we've won a game on Thanksgiving.

    1. Actually, the Stars and Bars refers to the national flag of the Confederacy.
      <img src="http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/roadshow/fts/images/saltlakecity_200602A13_02_lg.jpg"&gt;
      The flag you posted is actually the 2nd Confederate Navy Jack, which was itself taken from the Confederate Battle Flag (same pattern, but square instead of rectangular).
      Can you guess who lives in the Capital of the Confederacy and has these facts hammered into his skull regularly?
