Gags of Wrath - Wiki-Hack

I was doing some research on the Great Depression when I came across a "humorous stealth hack" of Wikipedia.

In the description of The Grapes of Wrath plot there were slyly inserted references to "mad cow disease", the dream of a "steady drug supply" and death by reindeer.

I don't know about you, but when we studied The Grapes of Wrath in high school there were no references to the Joad's dream of a steady drug supply.

There has to be a term for this kind of underground, barely noticeable, pranking of Wikipedia entries.

Anyway, see under "Plot" 2nd paragraph, 3rd sentence. 3rd paragraph, 3rd sentence and 4th paragraph 5th sentence.

A small laugh in the midst of the new economic troubles!


Honda Quits Formula One

Shocking news today as Honda announces it's withdrawal from the top tier of motorsports racing, Formula One.

"Honda Motor Co. has come to the conclusion that we will withdraw from all Formula One activities, making 2008 the last season for participation," said Honda president Takeo Fukui at an emotional press conference.

"This difficult decision has been made in light of the quickly deteriorating operating environment facing the global auto industry... and the sudden contraction of the world economies," he added.


Son of Car Show

Didn't I tell you I had hours of classic car footage?   Well, I do. So here is another 5 minute clip from my trip to Daytona Beach on November 28. The sun was so bright that day and the cars so shiny that I scorched my retinas


Turkey Rod Run

I went for a motorcycle ride on Friday intending to go to the Turkey Rod Run in Daytona Beach. Before I could get to the speedway I saw a parking lot filled with classic rods - so I stopped - and I looked.

I spent most of the day there. It was great and it was FREE.  Anyway enjoy Car Show Part I - from Volvo to Ford.
