Angry What are your thoughts on Fart Cans?

When you hear one drive by your house what'* on your mind at the time? In my honest, above-board, authentic, bona fide, conscientious, decent, direct, equitable, ethical, forthright, frank, genuine, high-minded, honorable, impartial, ingenuous, outright, plain, real, reputable, scrupulous, sincere, straightforward, undisguised, unfeigned, upfront, upright opinion... I HATE THEM

Why do people have to do it to their civics and corollas!? Why do people honestly think it sounds good? Why would you want your car to sound like your squeezing out one?

I've heard people call them 'g**e flutes'....I don't just funny to hear

I don't care for them either. They sound really trashy to me. And its so dumb, they hurt performance...idiots

It makes me smile, I find humor in them. it'* like expecting to get power from racing stripes (which I also laugh at).

It'* odd at a light though, one moment I hear the fart can revving since they've nothing else to do at lights and the next moment I hear their jaws hit the pavement.

Now THATS funny. ROFL! But still, I same as Bill dont actually race them, but have wasted half a nitrous blast through 2nd just to show them just how diminutive they really are in the realm of things. I could have done it without, but love to sit at the next light half a block ahead if it catches me and wait for them to crawl up along side again. Nobody in their car will even look at you and the fart can gets real quiet.......I especially love doing it the ones I see they have gone all out spending their allowances on stripes, graphics, fart cans, etc......"Hey buuuuuddy,...How much more power did ya get with the can of quick tune and the almost color Matching windshield wipers at your last trip through Advance Auto." TL, where ya been?

There are tons of these little pests buzzing around my area. And in the mile to the highway there'* about 6 lights.

First light: bzzzzzz bzzzzzzzzzzz BZZZZZZZ BZZZZZZ. My smile becomes larger. Light turns green and my "tire smoke" air freshener can be noticed.

Second light: I've been there for quite some time laughing loudly. When they arrive and stop quick bashing their front air dam on the ground it only fuels my laughter. Light hits green and the bumble bee is ready for a fight this time. But...but.. uh grampa'* already at the next light, no air freshner this time.

Third light.. My laughter is nearly drown out by the bee'* buddies laughing at his little bumbler.. Green light hits and he'* off to the races...why'* grampa still back at the light, oh CHIT there'* that sound again! Gramps runs by like the breeze.

It'* not a race you see. That would be like asking a rock to run uphill. It'* more of a game, see if I can pee my pants via the looks on their faces.
