Moped Humvee looks like a Humvee, but has a puny moped
engine, along with driver and passenger pedals to help it get

its traditional critics, it comes preconfigured with an
inviting range of nesting sites, enabling a variety of insect,
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.
