Everyone wants to be totally fab, but few can manage it.
One of the easy routes to fabdomland is achieved by
installing Dashboard grass (retractable) in your car.
what it's all about:
We live in a nasty world with not much relief at the
moment, but with Dashboard Grass (retractable)
all you have to do is turn a knurled control wheel, and
from the rows of holes running along the top of your car's
dashboard, numerous blades of grass will emerge.
fabdom is the instant outcome.
It's not real grass of course, as that would be high
maintenance, but the plastic version is very convincing,
and you can choose many variations re colour, blade
density and texture. The grass is simply stored on a
inserted under the dashboard, with the tips of the blades
poking through the rows of holes that have been drilled
part of the installation process. The control knob that
turns the roller is placed at one end.
It's not advisable to deploy your Dashboard Grass
(retractable) when driving, except to have a little bit of
stubble protruding, but when you park, you can turn the
completely and make the grass rise all the way to the
interior side of the car roof. This has the effect of totally
shading the front inside of the vehicle, which is really
great on a hot sunny day.
Inevitable deluxe version features the inclusion of other
random growing elements such as daisies and
and a motorised roller with a finger tip activated stalk
||Should be a fairly easy conversion. My car apparently
already comes with a grass hole. At least I THINK that's
what people are shouting at me.
||We're talking about lawn grass, apparently, not the other
kind. The other kind would drive your vehicle into a
similar state of total fabosity and allow the occupants to
harvest a pinch now and then.
||+This is so wonderful and refreshing! Of course we
can add some silk flowers, and little bees on wires
that will look like they are flying.
||Approved, along with the movement of small
hidden animals almost parting the grass but still
remaining hidden from view.
||Car dashboard is very practical as greenhouse for growing pot plants
||Okay... but you might want to not let my dog in your car.
Knurled knob, fingertip-activated.
||What would you call a collection of short, slightly curly, cropped hairs growing out of a policeman's helmet?
||ans: contstubble - I am available for target practice for that one, even though I do think it's rather great
