The post was all ready to go. We were all ready to write about the new Jeep Patriot. We wanted to talk about how we saw one of the newest members of the Jeep family under heavy cover the other day outside the Big Buck Brewery in Auburn Hills, just across I-75 from the DaimlerChrysler Tech Center. We wanted to talk about the great section Allpar has up for the new, not-so-much-a-concept-anymore vehicle. We also wanted to point out the Inside Line page with even more pics of the concept version which appeared to be dangerously similiar to the production model. We also wanted to tell you the rumors we've heard that the Patriot will be making a debut in New York.

We were ready to tell you all about it...and then we found this, and we've yet to stop laughing.
