SEMA Show: Kids Love The AutoLoc Flamethrower

After watching this video of the AutoLoc exhaust-mounted flamethrower gleaned from our gadget-obsessed brother-site's co-coverage of some of SEMA's techie goodness, the only thing we're able to think of was this monologue from the Mel Brooks classic, Spaceballs:

Yogurt: Merchandising, merchandising, where the real money from the movie is made. Spaceballs-the T-shirt, Spaceballs-the Coloring Book, Spaceballs-the Lunch box, Spaceballs-the Breakfast Cereal, Spaceballs...the Flame Thrower. [turns it on]

Dink, Dink, Dink, Dink, Dink, Dink: Ooooh!

Yogurt: [reacts to dinks] The kids love this one.
[a dink hands him a doll that looks likes Yogurt]

Yogurt: And last but not least, Spaceballs the doll, me.
[pulls string]

Doll: May the schwartz be with you!

Yogurt: [kisses the doll] Adorable.

Ok, maybe that's not the only thing we're thinking — but the other thing is just that fire coming out of any car orifice is sweet. Unless it's the fuel tank — 'cause that's bad.
