Encounter with the Douchemobile!!

Ok, so a lot of you are probably wondering what’s up with the last panels. This comic is an homage to the “Two Cops” strips in Chainsawsuit, by Kris Staub. They never fail to crack me up.

This strip is also pretty much verbatim from the conversation Layne and I had this morning. He follows even more comics than I do, and we often quote things from these comics at each other. (Cause we’re dorks like that…) I even narrated the last panel with my best 80’s TV announcer voice.

But I kid you not – the guy who cut me off was driving a massive hemi truck with giant Harley Davidson decals pretty much everywhere he could find room for. I didn’t get a good look at his tires, as I was too busy trying to keep from slamming into his rear-end, but I imagine that they had color-changing LED lit spinning hubcaps on them as well. The whole effect grabbed you by the lapels and screamed “I AM A GIANT DOUCHEBAG” as loudly as it could into your face.

The funny part is, though it was an extended cab truck, the actual bed of the truck itself looked to be too small to even think of carrying a bike in. I wouldn’t be shocked in the slightest if he ever got his paint keyed by people who DO actually ride Harleys….

I’d hope to never encounter his ilk again, except that this is Edmonton, and assholes in trucks are pretty much par for the course on these roads. Ah well. At least we have a good music festival…

    I’ve never understood having a crew cab truck with the 6′ bed either. Maybe his Vespa fits well in it?

    No, it’s not just an Alberta thing. You get these kind of assholes all over rural BC too. Although there they are usually “Huntin’ Trucks” owned by good ole’ boys with rifle racks in the rear cab window.

    Unfortunately, Canada hasn’t cornered the asshole market. There’s plenty driving around the States. And not all of them drive a pickup to compensate for their inadequecies.

    Has the truck nut scourge reached you yet or is that solely an American redneck douche-bag signifier?

    I’ve seen truck nuts down here in Calgary.. attached with a chain.. swinging in the wind.. for everyone to see. It’s sort of an “In case you were wondering what the size of this truck is compensating for..” thing.. I think.

    no, my darlings. This is more than that. This goes beyond Canada. This extends all the way down to Texas in the US. I hate those trucks. It started with the escalade… and then people bought them because they’re cadilac trucks.. so everyone has to get in on the stupid. Now everybody who makes vehicles has to have a truck that has less bed than a ranchero.. which, looking back on it now isn’t that bad.

    anyway… do not feel alone in your plight

    Whenever I see those Truck nuts I wished I owned a pair of bolt cutters. A quick snip and maybe the population of trucks douche-bags would slowly die out…..
