Crazy glued to the dashboard, these critters listen to talk radio, Top Fifty tunes, political lies, opinions, advertisements, trivia, propaganda, ” Fake News” and World News. Some of them look like animals we should have as friends, others look like aliens come to take over Earth and send us to salt mines worse than the ones we are already working.
Hollywood cranks out critters each year, as fast as screenwriters and makeup crews can design them. Our television and movie oeuvre is full of ” out of this world ” characters invading Earth, demons terrorizing children from dark places, galactic battles, romantic meetings between vampires and humans.
These guys and gals seem approachable. They have little tails, pointed ears ,protruding snouts, cute penetrating eyes. They have red, white stripes and dots, camouflage that is useless in our drab world.
Glued in place, they have their best conversations when the driver has locked the car and and gone to pick up a pack of cigarettes , a six pack of beer, and a couple of lucky condoms.
Tilting my ear just so, their people jokes make me laugh.
They have a point of view that heats up as the temperature inside the car reaches 120 degrees F.
The thing interesting me the most is the mental stability of the human who glued them to this dash.
If sticking plastic critters on your dash was a sane idea you would see it more often.
