Hillbillies--SV Style

Lawn parking is the practice of parking a vehicle upon a lawn. It is most commonly found in lower-income areas or during assemblies at a location without ample proper parking spaces for the number of persons assembling. While lawn parking is socially acceptable in some areas and on some occasions, lawn parking in inappropriate places may make the natives confused and restless. Lawn parking isn't just an American phenomenon; lawn parkers are also flourishing in Canada. It has become such a widespread concern that legislation has been created to eradicate this silent killer of class. It is one of, perhaps, only a few issues upon which church agrees with state.

So what does lawn parking have to do with me, some chick living in the Silicon Valley? Today, I came to work and noticed that someone practiced lawn parking at my place of business. I know what you're saying right now. "What? In a business district? Of Silicon Valley? No way." Unfortunately, my pets, it's true. Lawn parking is alive and well and has come to the SV. But, seeing as how we're "the shiznit" (How was my delivery?), lawn parking SV style is a bit more classy. Check it out, fools*:
No, your eyes do not deceive you. That is a 650i lawn parked at my work. But, I think there's a good reason for it. You see, the building I work in is owned by a software company and I think the car is being used for some sort of raffle. Here are other views:

dogs prefer lawns to asphalt. considering its new lines, i'd say it's no coincidence where it's parked.

Mr. Nonny Nu, are you saying that the new beemer lines are crappy?

Mr. Nonny Nu said...

uh huh. at least for this 650i.

Nonny Nu said...

I'll have to take photos of the other cars that are usually parked in the proper space right next to the beemer. They are really nice ones, like Ferrari and whatnot.

For $84k, it's nice to see that it includes a heated steering wheel.

Mr. Nonny Nu said...

oh yeah. that's the very first thing i look for in a german sports car, a heated steering wheel. did i mention that i collect vintage 911s just to install air conditioning units in them?

Nonny Nu said...

Looks like 5% of the car is made from spam parts...

Oh, hey, does anyone else like Spam-kus? Spam-kus are haikus about spam. I LOVE THESE THINGS! a great site.

But, Mr. Nonny Nu, this is partially why I don't like the Cayenne and the Boxster. These two seem so anti-Porsche to me because they pander to comfort and forsake sportiness.

i don't wanna talk to you anymore.

Nonny Nu said...

Ah. Now you know how I feel, grasshelper.

Nonny Nu said...

I just noticed that the back half of the 650i looks like a flattened 911.

Nonny Nu said...

Here's a spam-ku I just made up.

Loin, chop, or eyeball?

Nay, they speak no more.

Cl. Panic said...

Ooooh, did you see that the car got swapped out for a Black one?

That's better for its resale value.

Nonny Nu said...

Yeah, I saw the car swap. So, get this. It's a promotion by the software company. Whoever sells $6M dollars (Do you like that more than "PIN number?") or more of the software, they get a 3 yr lease. I think the company should just give them the car.

"Whoever sells $6M dollars...they get a 3 yr lease."

oh, that's precious. do they also get a half-off coupon for the local matinee with a free medium icee and a snap-on cap?

I don't think so, but would that be a deal breaker for you?

Cpl. Conniption said...

let me put it another way:

rub your grandma's bunions and she'll give you a whole quarter!
