What Made You Think The Second Hummer Wouldn't Also Fall Through The Ice?

Eastern Europe has been under a Siberian spell for a week or so, prompting the owner of a Hummer H2 to test the six inches of ice on Hungary’s Lake Balaton for some Siberian-style winter driving. What he apparently forgot was that a few days of 10-degree weather does not magically turn Lake Balaton into Lake Baikal.

He promptly crashed through the ice into three feet of icy water, but not before posting a photo to his Facebook page where he bragged about driving right across the lake to its south shore. He didn’t. As for the second Hummer, it came to the rescue. Similar ice conditions and a similar curb weight of three tons did not produce different results.

Fellow Hungarians, please take note: BalatonakarattyaSeverobaykalsk.

Alright... STOP! Collaborate, and listen

The ice is thin and I've got bad intentions

A Hummer never rolls that lightly

Heavy like a tractor, never slightly or politely

Will it crack the ice? Yo, it's fo sho

Turn on the engine, lets hit the snow

Turn downstream, grabbing for the handles

Light up the tires, cuz I'm a chump wearing mandals

Splash, a frozen death is what looms

Killing your brain like Demi Moore huffing balloons

Deadly when you smoke the medley

Anything less than that is baloney

Sink it once, sink it twice

Hummer on ice, you pay the price

Hummer owners have the cash to crash 'em

Sorry about your ride, and the splashdown
