They picked me up and they put me in the back seat

Not naming any names, but certain people at The Old Entomologist had nothing but sc0rn for the concept of a "Wacky Races" live-action remake. Harsh words were spoken along the lines of "You are all loonies". Haters gotta hate.
They are just jealous because I have dibs on the role of Muttley.

There is some molecule exchange going on between the behooved fauns and the tarmac of the road, and judging by the fronds sprouting from his scalp, Greenish Hugh has walked into too many trees.

UPDATED: Bonus product placement. If the shapes of the vehicles have a nagging sense of almost-legibility, that's because the original plan had been to conceal inspirational slogans within them (not to mention the sponsors' names and logos).

Due to mistakes being made and the work being outsourced to a company in Bangalore, the designs came back with the names and slogans in Devanāgarī script. Buggrit.

I, myself, would chalk it up to an unhealthy enthusiasm for "Penelope Pitstop" hentai.

I'm afraid a coat of arms has not been approved as a safe bumper by the National Highway Safety Commission.

I notice you are not able to marshal any arguments against this statement.

...and is nearly useless in case of a rollover.

A coat of arms would be handy for pickpockets in one way, but you could probably spot them a mile off.

See Update. Also, link to the BibliOdyssey post from whence the images came.

That is no armourial bearings, sir. With the breast-plate and the crossed weapons, it is clearly the Renaissance version of a Roman tropaeum.

...no armourial bearings
...had to get a bearing replaced once... cost a fortune... carry on

Listening to Dominance and Submission, it's hard to tell if Suzie stays in the front seat?

Those roadsteads are no bargain so I take from that one picture that, in olden times, it was considered better by the powerful to be nearly half most ludicrous, conveyance, evar than nearly half whatever those beasts are.
