    True story. Why Rover folks are the best!

    I work for UHaul. One day, while helping a guy get his trailer wiring fixed on his H2, I was joking around and asked him if he knew what the D ring on the rear bumper of his truck was for. He said he did not know. I told him it was so my Rover could pull him out when he gets stuck. He actually filed a complaint!

    Rover owners don't need inflated egos. They have Rovers!

    Sounds like he suffered from Small Penis Syndrome.

    Here's my take on it.

    An elephant was wandering through the jungle one day when he
    heard squealing noises coming from a well-known quicksand pit. So
    he rushed over to the pit and in the pit he saw a mouse who was
    caught in the quicksand and who was shouting: "Help! Help! Save
    me!"

    The elephant responded: "Hang on Mr Mouse, I'll save you!" and he
    threw his enormous penis out to the mouse and said, "Grab on, Mr
    Mouse, I'll drag you out" and so he dragged the mouse out of the
    quicksand and saved his life, for which the mouse was very
    grateful and said, "If ever you are in trouble, I'll help you!"
    the elephant nodded disbelievingly and wandered off again.

    Many months later, the mouse was strolling through the jungle
    when he heard a very loud, deep, shouting coming from a quicksand
    pit. So he ran over to the pit and in it he saw the elephant
    drowning in the quicksand shouting: "Help! Help! Save me!"
    the mouse yelled out to the elephant: "Hang on Mr Elephant! I'll
    save you!" and he scuttled off into the bushes. A few seconds
    later, with an sick roar, an ugly gray old Landrover came
    screaming to a halt in the clearing and the mouse jumped out from
    behind the driver's seat, tied a rope to the Landrover and threw
    the other end of the rope to the elephant and dragged him out of
    the quicksand.

    The moral of the story is that if you have a Landrover, you
    don't need a big penis.

    That story went and ended where I never expected it to.

    I can't take credit for it (or should I say I refuse to?), it's from the LRO mailing list in '95.
    It did help explain to my wife why I've always driven Land Rovers though. Luckily she says, "You know I love you anyway."
