Goat Edible Moped Humvee

A Happy Humming Humvee

Moped Humvee looks like a Humvee, but has a puny moped engine, along with driver and passenger pedals to help it get up steep hills. Its body panels are made out of sheets of pressed, edible, paper maché much like the East German Trabant, making it light enough for four children, one on each corner, to pick it up and carry it around.

To further confound its traditional critics, it comes preconfigured with an inviting range of nesting sites, enabling a variety of insect, bird and animal life to colonise its exterior shell. Once its useful life is over its few metal parts can be removed and the rest left in a field of goats to be leisurely consumed.

Actually, the outer covers were made out of "Duraplast", a phenolic resin (cf. Bakelite) with embedded cotton fibers. [jutta, Oct 02 2005]

       Just think: no more microwaved Ginster's pasties from service stations, just eat the dashboard.

       Love the idea of a Bloated Jeep (<-official military name) coming over the horizon, its powerful engine emitting a high-pitched nasal whine as the owner fends off a herd of goats with a pointy stick.

       with that little power, it would top out at like 20mph, if that.

       //it would top out at like 20mph// As long as goats can only manage 19mph, this should be fine.
