Turbo Thoughts

.

I was thinking about stuff today while I was waiting for my Human to return with the pastries.

Why aren't there any car makes or models named after dogs? Seriously (siriusly) why not!? A bunch of other stupid animals have car types: Impalas, cougars, jaguars, skylark, rabbits... And they name cars after stupid nonsense words: Integra, Reatta, Escalade...IT'S GOTTA BE A CONSPIRACY!!!!

How many dogs do you see riding around in a car? LOTS!!! How many thunderbirds are riding in cars? NONE!!!

So if we had a car named after Siberian huskies, what type would it be? I'm inclined to go with the Subaru Outback. They're rugged, outdoorsy, not super big or super small. What do you guys think? Please post your suggestions.

It's got to be some kind of a powerful, fast Siberian Utility Vehicle (SUV)!

Yeah. I think it would be a good idea to have windshield wipers on the inside to clean nose prints.

Koda said...

I think the Outback is the perfect choice. It is very agile with it's 4 wheel drive and can go just about anywhere. Siberian Outback would be a great name for it.

Get the pack together and let's email Subaru!

I think the Subaruians would be so overwhelmed by our compelling arguement that we'd each get an Outback for free!

OK... This is a lot of tough talk about what car is worthy of the Husky name.... The last I heard, "Huskies" were pants made for fat kids, and you were scared of your shaddow.

This is a big tough guy ego-fest from a sissy-dog who's sitting around inside the house,waiting for his human to bring home the "Pastries."

What kind of pretty boy fancy pants are you? "Oh Mumsie-Doo! Where oh where are the crumpets that go with these pastries?... I do so ever hope you have plenty of butter and wet-naps... I hate it when I have jam on my pinkie paws."

All of you dogs make me want to barf! I'm glad my mom,LargeOh, doesn't have a dog running around the house and yelling about everything being stupid.

The Bad Old Pussy is in one of her moods today....

Heh heh! You're pretty funny, cat!

Turbo the Sibe said...

B.O.P., say do you want to come over? You can be my bestest preymate...er, make that PLAYmate!

Hey Turbo,
That does sound like a great idea.
In fact they should name a car after you. TURBO. ;)

There are 5 cats in our house & when they talk like that, we lick ALL their stuff, boy does that get em miffed, takes them days to get our dog smell off all their "precious" cat junk. Our Mom has a Jeep Wrangler, we love it when the top is down, it's like a really fast walk but we don't have to move, we could rename it the Jeep Huskler?! Easy, we're only babies....

cyber-sibes said...

Hey! Our mom bought an Outback to haul our furry butts around in . It IS the perfect husky-hauler. "Siberian Outback" sounds good to us too!

Her new license plate starts with "DHV" , which she says stands for "Designated Vehicle for Huskies" Isn't that clever?

Turbo the Sibe said...

Fu Fu, I like the sound of that! You should have your own car model, too!

Macie-Malechai, cats are stupid! I like the name "Jeep Huskler."

Cyber-sibes, do you think that the Subaruian car company will give us a free one if we give them our good ideas?

Um, Tubey, what are you doing in that photo? It looks like you are doing #2.

Turbo the Sibe said...

Naw, just sitting. Not the other thing.

IndyPindy said...

Ah. It's an odd picture, it looks like you are squatting. I thought maybe you had your "deep thoughts" during potty time, like humans do.

It is the human woman's opinion that the 1985 Dodge Colt is the perfect husky-mobile. It only ran when it wanted to, refused to run when it didn't want to. Would unexpectedly need something very expensive without warning, and once when it got wet, smelled really bad inside (like Loki when he farts).
