Question Of The Day: What's In Your Car?

Illustration for article titled Question Of The Day: What's In Your Car?

The funniest thing Ted Nugent has ever said is this: If he could teach the entire population of Manhattan to bow hunt, there'd be enough food in Upstate New York to feed them. And by food he means Bambi. The second funniest might very well be, "[Black rifles] are everywhere. I personally don't know anybody who doesn't have two in his truck." If you don't know, "black rifle" is an NRA euphemism for "assault weapon." That got one of our most beloved commenters, Mr. SwatLax, thinking. What do those of us who exist in the form of keep in our vehicles? Currently, I have a phone charger, a piece-of-filth iPod radio adapter, six bungee cords and a Vitamin Water bottle stuffed with cigarettes. SwatLax is much more practical, including a raincoat, towel, garbage bag, water bottle, and pocketknife among the junk in his trunk. The Postfather even chimed in with his list, "Tissues, snow scraper, Mag Light, case for sunglasses lost two years ago..." And I would wager cash that not one of us keep any of the Motor City Madman's tuneage anywhere near his cars. Okay, maybe just "Free For All." You?
