I saw this yesterday, and I wondered whether I should post about it, but what the hell. All human life is here, right? And we're not judgemental, right?
This is a story about a chap with an unusual relationship with forms of transport.
Myself, I don't care. The way I look at it, love is love. Whether it's for a person of the opposite sex, or of the same sex, or a Buick, it all boils down to the same thing. Although, god help me, I can't help finding Mr Smith just the teeniest little bit creepy.

Have you ever read A Melon for Ecstasy by John Fortune and John Bird?

You asked me that before, and I still haven't got round to it.

"Hutch thinks I'm a nice person."

He does? What on earth makes you think that?

That's probably just because he hasn't worked out how to.

Neither have I.

Yes, when someone covered with liquid skin comes into The Vortex Of The Weird or some crazy comes into the shop and tries to chat you up, at least you can comfort yourself with the knowledge that hutch will never ban you. It's not much, I know, but it's something to hang on to in an insane world...

"he had a five-year relationship with Victoria, a 1969 VW Beetle . . ."

. . . but then she said she was tired of him and dumped him flat . . .

TEENSIEST bit creepy?

*shudder* I'm sorry, but I find that VERY creepy! And I used to work in the mental health field at a prison, and heard it all... so I thought.

Hutch is getting a lot of mileage out of the story, though -- he obviously thinks it's a gas.

I dunno, it's rather stop and go for me. Doesn't get my motor running, that's for sure.

Greater minds than mine have been coming up with motoring puns, so I think I'll just bow out here and watch with admiration.

Many, many blog entries ago, didn't you post something about a man having an intimate relationship with his bicycle?

You defended the rights of the bike guy because he was arrested for his habit, but the car guy, who is getting to be featured on TV regarding his, creeps you out a tad. It's all in the marketing, eh?

Actually, you make a very good point. I think it's the way he boasts about his conquests that I find creepy. A gentleman never brags.

Meh, not nearly as creepy as this guy I once knew, who was into flaggellation, necrophilia, and bestiality.

I told him he was flogging a dead horse...
