It's been a not-quiet week so far here in Lake Wobegon, where Hurricane Irene mangled my power lines something fierce. As I pass into day two without power, I'm having to be a little more efficient with the energy I have. So here's a brief but still worthy winner from TheSwagger, asking how Jake Blues might have pitched a black-and-white Chevy Cruze:

It's got a rental car motor, a 85 cubic inch plant, it's got rental car tires, rental car suspensions, rental car shocks. It's a model made after catalytic converters so it won't run good on regular gas. What do you say, is it the new WTFmobile or what?
