Metacars is Friggin' Hilarious

mmmm...delicious irony.
mmmm…delicious irony.

We here at Hooniverse see ourselves as a post-auto-enthusiasm, post-forum, post-mainstream-blog institution. Namely, we (that’s us and you, dear readers) are in a position to understand and appreciate all aspects of Automotive culture, be they corn, rice, kraut or LSD-flavored, high budget or low.
…but Metacars takes it a step further, leaving sparing no aspect of automotive culture from utter mockery. With content like “REPORT: 19% of Lexus Buyers Are Deceased“, “Area Man May Not Finish Project Car This Year“, and “Car Blogger Getting Desperate for Questions of the Day“, they mange to put us all in our place.
A personal favorite: “Blog Commenter: It’s Like Manufacturers Don’t Even Read My Ideas“.

    I needed humor today. Thanks, Hooniverse!
    Also, I like this one: Lincoln Changes Company Name to MKL, VP Mark Fields Now Called MKF

      So funny, I was just about to post the same thing! My favorite so far, actually.

    This is an entirely new, and entirely amazing, site to me.
    Only 19% of Lexus buyers? Uhhhhh…

    Also glad to be clued in on MetaCars. An Internet humor site that I actually found more than just slightly humorous? …today is a good day!

    Upon discovering it, Mr Braff and I spent a good 20 minutes IM-ing each other various articles…even though it was obvious we were both reading the same archives from finish to start.
    In case it's not obvious, it's written by someone within the (non-parody) auto blogosphere. No one you're likely to know off-bat, but probably someone you've heard of.

    I like it. Kinda like the Onion, but it knows how to drive a stickshift.

      I had the same thought. Grab them with the headline, then the story writes itself.

    I sent this one to Mr. Hardigree……thought it was my duty. Also, wanted to see if universe would implode.

      I thought of Hardigree on that one, too. In fact, it wouldn't surprise me if it was Hardigree that writes these.

        It is not Mr. Hardigree…

          Doesn't matter what you say, i'm gonna keep on thinking he's the one writing it.

    Thanks for this, MetaCars is new to me. While I read TTAC, usually Baruth's stuff, the neverending anti-GM posts are so ripe for mockery that I'm glad someone has finally done so.

    1. engineerd Avatar

      Well, you gotta figure TTAC's anti-GM stance is the yin to the yang of the outrageously pro-GM stance on Jalopnik.

    These are surprisingly well written. I've been following the twitter feed of ''BreakingAuto'' which is in a similar vein, but Metacars is awfully well done. The MKL/MKF one is my new favorite too.

    1. engineerd Avatar

      I agree. Although, BreakingAuto has had some hilariously funny stuff.

    Reading MetaCars can seriously mess you up if you are in the habit of tabbing between car blogs.
