My Other Car's a Submarine
Hey, remember that time I fawned all over that War Journalist action figure and a few of you actually pitched in and got it for me? Well, it just so happens another item has caught my eye - a totally kick-ass thirty-four foot submarine! Hear me out: For a fleet 12 Million, this little fish can be all ours. It's a throwback to the dawn of submersible warfare, a modern day Hunley can forge the shallows of a riverine environment, plumb the depths of an open sea or scour the edges of a hostile harbor. What you do with it is your business. Me, I just wanna terrorize a few kayakers on Lake Brandt. Those guys really piss me off ... Anyhoo, if you're still not sold on buying us a sub, check out this package I turned on her yesterday. The TV news story itself, I'd give a 6. The ninety minutes I spent talkin' shop with a pontoon boat full of ex-Navy types as we chased a shimmering white cylinder across a freshwater quarry ... that rates a solid 9 (1 point deducted for the cameraman-hampering heat). NOW DIVE!!!
