Note to marketers: you probably don't want to carry the poolroom metaphors too far when you're applying them to an automobile.

In this ad for the '07 Nanjing MG 7, we learn that the Chinese-built Rover 75 descendant has taillights that resemble racked balls, a steering wheel that resembles a cue ball, and it grips the road the way ivory grips felt. Does Nanjing Automotive do a good job of carrying on the ol' Morris Garage traditions? Insert Lucas Electrics jokes here!

LandofMinos: ...sent down to strike the unroadworthy!

Whilst having a discussion in a pub with friends regarding new Chinese car makers, a smelly hippie woman told me (i.e. fed me bullshit) that Chinese cars makers were using real people as crash test dummies.

I attempted dispelled that rumour with the lentil munching moron.

If they did indeed use real people, you'd think that they'd have a 5 star safety rating car by now, which they don't.

If word got out that a car maker (regardless of origin) used real people in crash tests, who'd buy their car? Nobody. So stick that and your tie-dyed rags up your crusty twat.
