Today's sign of the apocalypse

The fact that people will probably buy this stuff makes me want to cry.

"One man's trash, it has been said, is another's treasure.

Take mud, for example.Most folks spend many hours as well as many dollars removing it from their machines to keep them sparkling clean.

But in England, you can spend about $14.50 for a quart bottle of mud to apply to your vehicles to give them the always popular grunge look.

And the product, Sprayonmud, doesn't cater to just any vehicle. According to the company's Web site (www.sprayonmud.com), the target buyers are owners of sport-utility vehicles.

Why?

'"To give your friends, family and neighbors the impression you've just come back from a day's shooting or fishing, anything but driving around town all day."'

-Chicago Tribune

Heaven forbid you have to admit that the furthest off-road your super-duper-offroad-Australian-bush-rated Hummer has ever been is over the curb while failing miserably to parallel park.

  • I've heard that people also use it to obscure their license plates in great britain, so that they can't be caught on camera speeding.

  • Ahhh, interesting. At least the product has some practical application.
